What if you are married to a mama's boy?

Let me know about your opinion about the follwoign situation: I heard my husband talking on the phone this morning. He said, “Sure, Mom, it’s OK…it will be just fine…no problem for us.” After he hung up, I asked him what that was all about, and he hit me with the news that it was his mom’s turn to have the annual family party at her house, but she had volunteered our house for the occasion. I got really upset because he didn’t even ask me—he just agreed to take it over without consulting me. Our house is small, but we have large porch and a pool. I know we will end up paying for all the food and drinks and nobody in his family will offer to lend a hand in the work involved before, during or after the party. I flew off the handle and told him I would go away for the weekend and he could handle the whole thing himself. He says I’m overreacting because I hate his family, which is not true. He’s got a couple of sisters I’m not crazy about, but I don’t hate them. I guess I’m upset because he didn’t consult me before agreeing to have the party at our place.

That would be very difficult.Actually I am still single but I never dream to end up with a mama's boy because a mama's boy is someone who really cling to his mother and prefer his than his wife, so even if his mother is wrong and his wife is right, he will still take his mother's side. He will also confide to his mother than to his wife, and that will create friction in a marriage relationship.A man who is a mama's boy is very dependent and couldn't make decision for himself.

Well I would have hit the roof to as it is you who is going to be left with all the work and stress Also you both live there so you have a right to say whether you want it held it your House or not You are not over reacting at all and I think you should put it to him that he should do it all as he agreed to it without consulting you first

You are definitely righ about it its very hard to be married to a mama's boy. My husband is irresponsible sometimes & only think of his own personal happiness. I just felt so depress sometimes because I am all alone in running my family & the errands of the house. Its hard but I am still holding on while I still can because I am looking for the perfect time to talk to him about my emotional complains.
