Give Advice: Help! My Husband Is A Mama's Boy!

Published on April 27, 2009 by chelito4

Help! My husband's mom is completely crazy about him! She needs to know his every move or else she can't sleep! Literally! She calls him like more than 4 times a day! Every time I make his lunch for work she always has to put something in there as if I did't do a good job on my husband's lunch! I need help! Don't get me wrong, she is a very sweet lady, it's just she can't leave him alone!

I can relate to this. My ex-boyfriend's mom did EVERYTHING for him. It was frustrating and, frankly, a turn-off. Does your husband know this bothers you? Maybe some honest conversation about this would help?

Eeks. Your husband is the one who has to address this, and if he doesn't know it's bothering you he won't be able to help.

It sounds like she is worried about being left out. Studies have shown that men who keep in good touch with their moms can help ease tension between their mom and their wife.

But if that doesn't work, here's what I suggest: At a time when you're calm and not feeling annoyed you should sit down with him and tell him that you want his mom to be involved in your lives, but that you're feeling smothered. Make sure to do this when you're both feeling good--if one of you is already upset about anything to convo could go downhill. If he reacts well, he might be willing to talk to his mom and set up something like a once a day phone call with her. If he reacts poorly make sure he understands that you don't want her out of his life, you just want to feel like you have some space to be a couple together, without interference.

Good luck!
