By he's still not convinced - United States
Today, while visiting my mother, she asked my son who his favorite parent was. As a growing boy, he chose his father. I don't mind, except she then asked, "So, whose side are you taking in the divorce?" My husband and I have no marital issues. My son refuses to believe us. FML

She is not clever. This should in no way put a strain on their marriage if you think about it. All it does is make them dislike grandma for having to rehabilitate their son into knowing mom and dad are not going to divorce.


Yes sherlock does not for this is a mystery for the hardly boys! two young whipper snappers withe a taste for solving mystery. The hardly boys! In the case of the favourite parent.

Sounds more like her son, since she convinced him he's gonna choose one and since his dad's the favorite...And she just heard that...

#20, I'm glad I didn't try my "I hope you mean ex-mum" comment. It seems this section is overrun by the humor-impaired, and such an original and brilliant gem would have gone to waste.

Hah, well Perdix, I started off with negative votes when everyone thought I was actually being serious - I can't believe I had to make a second statement to mention that I was joking! Fickle voters! ^o^

You and your husband may not have issues but your mother sure as hell does. sounds to me like she doesn't like your husband but regardless. You don't say something like that to a impressionable young child.

I bet that if you asked her why she did it, her cheeks would become full red and she would say "For the glory of Satan, of course!" Anyway, that was a really large dick move, very disrespectful. Your mum owes you an apology, a big one! Good luck handling this situation, OP.

Jesus, what an awful thing to do! If I were you I would make HER apologize to your son and make things right. Why would she want to make her own grandson unhappy AND try to wreck a perfectly good marriage?
