It helps them know how they deserve to be treated and makes it easy to let go of people who don’t meet their expectations. That is why when women finally find someone who they are serious about they are eager to take them home to get approval from their mother.

But things can get sticky when mom doesn’t get along with your partner the way you thought she would. She wants what is best for you so sometimes she can’t help but to have her own criteria for your boyfriend. These criteria usually spring from her own experiences with love and dating.

She knows what she won’t tolerate, and she won’t tolerate the same behaviors from your boyfriend. A good way to gain insight into why she feels the way she does is by looking at her horoscope sign. Her sign can tell you all the things she dislikes about people and all the things she dislikes about men in relationships.

For some mothers their astrology sign makes them weary of men who can’t openly communicate. So, if your boyfriend doesn’t seem to have clear intentions then she may have a hard time getting along with him. For others they don’t like men who doesn’t come from the same background as you.

Because of this he may not be able to fulfill her basic expectations of upbringing and values which will make her turned off by him. In a perfect world two of the most important people in our lives would get along, but clearly this isn't always the case.

She can't tell if he is serious about you and there is nothing she dislikes more than unclear emotions. 

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are disrusting and suspicous by nature, which is why your mother had to do extensive research on your boyfriend. She found that she doesn't get along with him because of his attitude.

Earning her trust will take a lot of patience, and if he let's her down there will be no turning back.
