Question: “My spouse of eight years is a mama’s boy, and his mom is not a nice mom. I’m scared that it finally has gotten to a point where I can’t live with it anymore. We started dating when I already had a child. He stepped into the father role seamlessly, but his mom would always make comments about my child and I needing to stay where we belonged and leave her son alone. Father’s Day when my child would give him gifts she would scoff at us that “this is not her dad”. He might not have provided the genetic material, but he did everything else since he met her without being asked to.
