Dear Carolyn: I have a great boyfriend whom Ive been with for several years, and we just bought a house together. The problem: His mother thinks were living in sin because were not married. She tells her son this about once every three months. I have a major problem with people intruding on my personal life when theyre not invited.
I cant say anything to his mom because she hasnt addressed me directly yet although her last email came perilously close to calling me a woman of loose morals but everything the boyfriend has tried so far hasnt worked. Of course, if we ever do marry and have kids, it will be, Why dont you go to church?
We have an extremely honest relationship, so he knows how I feel. Hes willing to fight his mother over it, because he agrees with my concept of privacy. Im at a total loss here how do we get the woman to butt out? Its Still Salvageable, Right?
