Where do I start? I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for nearly two years, I was in an early pregnancy with my son when me and my boyfriend met he accepted how hard it had been and took me and the bump under his wing he loved us both and his mum was fine she would make comments but I just thought she was old fashioned, over time comments had been made and names had been given to me &quot;madam&quot;, &quot;it&quot; And &quot;her&quot; , I never say anything back and forever sing her praises to her son for the sake of our relationship but recently I had found a lump and was concerned she persisted to know why my boyfriend had to take me to the doctors and wouldn't listen even when told it was personal and private by my boyfriend, later on that evening I found a text from her on my boyfriends phone from her asking if I had an &quot;itchy fanny&quot; with a laughing face I saw this and broke down my boyfriend told me I was overreacting and was over tired then she text him telling him to come home and that she's &quot;sick of my <i class="fa fa-asterisk filtered"></i><i class="fa fa-asterisk filtered"></i><i class="fa fa-asterisk filtered"></i><i class="fa fa-asterisk filtered"></i>&quot; when I had done nothing wrong but prompt my boyfriend to go back to his mums. She doesn't accept my son, she is rude and very controlling of my boyfriend, she's never found love and hates all the girlfriends her sons have..she had no daughters. I love this guy and my son calls him dada..she slags off my family and calls them when I've &quot;done wrong&quot; to her son. When is it enough? She's practically bulling me and my boyfriend says it's just who she is.


I agree that if he isn't willing/able to see how inappropriate and nasty her behaviour is then you have a big problem. If he isn't going to stand up for you then you need to consider moving on. You deserve a partner who will protect you and if she doesn't accept your son now she probably never will. If you gave her a biological Grandchild one day would she may show favouritism and would your boyfriend try to stop it? Would he protect you all from her or just say that's the way she isn't? Would he cut her off if she refused to behave appropriately?

I think you should divorce her and keep him: in other words dismiss her from your thoughts and in reality that really does take care of the problem. She can only affect you if you let her in and she already has given you enough to cut her out of your life. Just don't go to any functions, take calls etc but encourage your son and him to stay in her life. Try not to get nosey and ask about her..... leave the door closed............I was in your boat for over 20 years and felt tremendous relief when I accepted that I did not need my drunk of a mother-in-law harassing me for stupid inane reasons that she didn't even remember the next day. Once you stop caring the games over for them and they can't touch you anymore. Good Luck!

I was just thinking the same thing, and that usually means they are a mama's boy or afraid of their mom and it will only get worse.

Never accept th "it is just who she is. If your bc loves you there will be other men who love you. You may need to rethink this one.
