After 3 years? At this point, it might be a blessing if she merely accepted that OP and her son are happy together and it's not her place up interfere.

I think it's safe to say that 90%of women go bat shit mentally unstable when it's time for there baby boy to focus a little less on mama and a little more on another women.

FYL, OP. I'd feel so shitty if I was in your situation. Even if you don't like someone you should at least have the decency to respect them and not do things like that

My now husband never even had any other girlfriend. We were the only people each other ever dated. My mother in law still tries to cause problems over some girl he went to the church that has a terrible personality and weighs 400+ pounds she wishes he would have dated. After 10 years, no improvement

Life story? and why add the 400+ pounds? Some people are into that. Not me, but some, still seems insensitive to say that as one of the reasons he shouldn't have dated her.

It can be hard when your significant other's family doesn't like you. But keep in mind, when you marry, you are also marrying his family and tying yourself to them in an irreparable way. Think carefully about investing more time because a lot if times if the boyfriends mother doesn't approve, he won't propose.

I really don't think that in the three years of dating her boyfriend, OP hasn't spent enough time with his mother. His mother is just being immature and inconsiderate. She deserves a good slap in the face, and OP's boyfriend should rip her a new one (if he hasn't already).
And really, if OP's boyfriend wants to marry her, nothing will stand in his way. It's his life, and it would be his fiancée, not his mother's.

my bfs mom doesn't really like me that much and he always talks about one day proposing and how he doesn't care what she says (he really doesn't). He also defends me anytime she crosses the line. So even though we're not married, we've established that it's our goal. Therefore, your argument is invalid #10.


So basically you're suggesting OP shouldn't get invested in the relationship because if she were to marry her boyfriend, she'd marry into his family. So the son should get punished for his mother's terrible behavior? The guy probably hasn't done anything wrong. I know I'd be sick and tired of my mum still disapproving of my relationship after three years, and I'd be heartbroken if I got broken up with because of someone else's actions. Give the mother the cold shoulder, not her son.

I understood what #10 meant, which wasn't that the boyfriend would be punished for his mother's actions, but that the boyfriend wouldn't want to marry OP because his mother didn't approve. Both of these are equally wrong, but I thought I should clarify.

Well, OP doesn't say how old they are. Some of this will depend on the age of the participants.
It will also depend on the relationship between mother and son.
I think you each have good point, but I would suggest that OP not spend any effort trying to get back at the mom. If they do marry, OP will not want the living hell that is monster-in-law.
OP might try to talk to her SO to see what might be done to get on moms good side (other than breaking up so she can taunt the next girlfriend about how good OP was).
