The point of getting married is also to symbolize independence from your parents by forming your own adult life with your partner. It doesn't sound like he's ready to do that, and I'm sorry to tell you but that never works out well in the long run.

Before talking engagement, you should really figure out whether you two are on the same page here. His mother might never change her mind, and I get how hard it can be to accept that and move on from it, but at some point we all have to let our parents be upset sometimes and do our thing regardless.

I hope you can work this out - if not, tell him to have a happy forever after with his mother. This is one fight you can't win if he's unwilling to take it on himself.

This is a huge red flag. How's this going to work over the years? I don't see it. This woman is going to be an interference and a problem, especially if your guy doesn't have the balls to stand up to her for you.

What's he going to tell her when you're married? Is he going to hide the kids from her too? You can't build a life with somebody you keep hidden away, you need to let him know you're not a secret. Either he tells his mother or you stop pretending you have a future together.
