My bf and I have been dating almost 4 years now I am 24 and he is 27. The issue I am having is with his mom. She is extremely nagging and she treats him like he is 5 years old. The other day she called up to schedule his dentist appt for him. Like he is 27 I am pretty sure he can schedule his own Dr appts himself. We see her about once a week for dinner and and she will nag at him the whole time to find a better job he is a truck driver and he loves what he does. He wants to move out West but when he was over she was looking at jobs down South for him and I casually asked her if she saw any good jobs out west and she said he can't move out west because there aren't any bodies of water for HER to go to the beach. I was thinking are you kidding me your son is looking to settle down and move in with me you shouldn't need a beach to visit your own son. Not to mention she lives an hour away from the beach. She accused me of using him for rides which I quickly shut her down about that accusation be cause it is the furthest thing from the truth. I approached him before about her over bearing ways and I feel like he goes out of his way to defend her and it pisses me off I feel like he should be backing up the women he is going to spend the rest of his life with. She also is constantly calling him to ask nosy questions. She asked him exactly how much he makes at work. She actually got mad because he listed me as his emergency contact over her which is crazy imo. He is looking to spend the rest of his life with me of course over time I am going to be listed on his emergency contact. I guess my question is will this ever change and how do I approach my guy about all of this?

Calm down. That's her son. She has the right to mother him. And sometimes even though the child might be 70 for a mother it still is the same son she carried and nursed. So let her have her right. Yes she is a little overbearing just ignore it and respect her. And yes she threw a tantrum over the fact he listed you as an emergency contact. But that's her son so she might be feeling a little insecure. Talk to her2
