Make room in your life for both! You can spend time with both of them without having them both in the same place at the same time. You mother should understand that you are in a commited relationship and that you should be spending more time with you GF than with her. You can maintain a close relationship with your mother (that is healthy) without being with her 24 hours a day.

The country/state where you stay, do you have a custom that after marriage, you, your girl and mother can stay together? If your bondage with your girlfriend is strong, your girlfriend can win over your mother. Any how you and yourgirl friend would be doing jobs outside most of the time in day and come back in the evening. Cannot this work?

i think it depends why your Mrs doesn't like you mum.. if she doesn't really have a good reason then I think you need to explain to her that she is you mum and nothing is ever going to change that if she wants to be with you she needs to understand your mum needs some of your love too and your not going to give your mum up. You also need to make sure your Mrs knows that you love her dearly as well but your not going to leave your mother but that doesnt mean you love her less. I'm shocked that she even expects you too I'm sure she has a mother and loves her as well but again maybe there's a reason why your girlfriend feels like this .. talk to her that's all you can really do .. women are very weird so maybe there's something your girlfriend is feeling that you have no idea about. .. :) ..

Dude, your Mom is forever. You're still young, that's your fault...you have so much you have to go through. Take your time, think alot. Think of all that you have got...for your Mom will be here tomorow, but your girl may not.
