Domineering mother keeps son on short leash
Dear Abby: My boyfriend “Alex’s” mom is the most controlling person I have ever encountered. We only get to see each other on weekends because he lives an hour away from me. When we do see each other, it’s for one-third of the day. Alex has to spend the other two-thirds with her. I’m 22 and he is 21.
He is also not allowed to stay with me. Alex has to lie to her about where he’s staying in order to be able to spend time with me. His mom has added a feature to his cellphone in order to see where he is 24/7, and would cancel his service if he refused it.
I love my boyfriend unconditionally, but his mom is driving us both crazy and turning our relationship into a trio. We have tried getting her to back off, but it just makes her worse. I am at a loss as to what to do. What do you think we should do?
