Should A Mama’s Boy Change After Marriage – An Analysis!

Read on and take charge of the situation if he is one!

1. It Becomes Difficult To Share Your Concerns About Your MIL With Your Mama’s Boy Husband 

Say you have genuine concerns about your differences with your mother-in-law.

In such a case, how would you manage if your partner is a mama’s boy who isn’t ready to listen to anything against his lovable mother?

Would that not deteriorate your relationship with your partner in the long run?

2. You Will Not Be Able To Voice Your Opinions To Your MIL Around The Ready-To-Defend-Son

Considering that you have an abundance of differences with your mother-in-law, how would you deal with her with your partner around?

Do you not think your stance against your MIL would offend your partner? Would that not cause a friction in your relationship with HIM? 

3. Your Partner Compares You With His Mother For Everything

Say you cook your spouse his favorite pav bhaji (An Indian snack).

After taking a bite, if he says , “It isn’t like how my mother prepares. I think you should learn from her”, Wouldn’t you feel upset?

What if he takes his mother’s name for every small thing? Would you not feel displeased with yourself?

Will that not strain your perspective about your spouse and his mother?

4. Your Private Life With Your Partner Goes For A TOSS

Every married woman would obviously desire to spend some quality time with her husband.

That said, would you like it if your partner makes it a habit to take his mother along wherever you go?

Should not your spouse acknowledge your basic expectations?

5.Your Partner Does Not Make Special Efforts For You

Seeking mother’s help is not wrong but what if it becomes a normal? What if your spouse always takes his mother to shop gifts for you?

Wouldn’t that get you dejected considering the level of attention every wife expects off her spouse? Shouldn’t he make every aspect of your life special?

6. Your Partner Always Makes His Mother His Priority

Say you have an important meeting early in the morning and you have asked your spouse to drop you at office.

Coincidentally, say your mother-in-law also asks your spouse to drop her at the temple.

In such a case, how would you feel if your partner gives preference to his mother and asks you to go by cab? Wouldn’t you feel hurt?

The problem with a mama’s boy is that he would make his mother a priority all the time compromising his relationship with his wife.

7. Your Partner Chooses To Follow His Mother  Always

Say you plan to spend a day at your parents’ place with your partner. But your mother-in-law is against the idea.

Abiding by his mother if your husband dismisses the plan, wouldn’t that make you feel disconcerted?

8. You Don’t Get To Share Enough Personal Space With Your Partner

Say your spouse spends time with his mother once he returns from work. Or he spends most of his time at home with his mother sharing things he never does with you. Would that not hurt you?

Do you not think this could widen the gap in your marriage life? Tell me now, is it good to continue being a mama’s boy after marriage?

9. Your Partner’s Over-Attachment To His Mother Might Make Him Feel Helpless

Say you go on a vacation with your partner. And your spouse keeps calling his mother every once in a while; wouldn’t that spoil your private time with him?

Without his mother around, if he is feeling emotionally down, how would you deal with him positively despite your feeling disheartened?
