I’ve been seeing a new boyfriend for around 4/5 weeks and had dinner with his parents quite a few times within this period. It’s all going fine, he and I are getting along great. But his mother is a different story. On a whole, she’s lovely. Has all the right intentions but is a bit loopy in the fact she is constantly spouting rubbish about a corrupt government alongside conspiracy theories about absolutely everything. The government, baby food, medications.
All fine, I can take it. But she often brings up homophobic comments how men are only meant to be with women and vice versa. BF tells her whenever she says this that it’s the 21stC and she’s wrong. I don’t say anything because he’s already told her but I’m not sure what to do.
I really like BF, falling for him a lot but do I really want to listen to his mothers views? Not really. he lives with parents so she’s pretty unavoidable. What do I do?
You are in a relationship with him, not his mother. He calls her out on it so obviously doesn't agree with her. Just ignore her silly comments, change the subject whenever the conversation turns that way. YANBU though, sounds horrible to listen too!
Stop spending so much time with her. I know everyone is different but FOUR WEEKS into a relationship and you’ve already met his mother multiple times? Never heard of this before. I wait months before introducing my OH to anyone.
