Do you think the way a guy treats his mother is a good indication of how he'll treat you down the line?
My boyfriend generally doesn't mistreat his mother and is mostly
tolerant of her but him and his brother call her a bitch when she
isn't around and my boyfriend even complains about her to me.
There was even a time when she made him really angry with her nagging and he picked up his phone and yelled "F*CK MOM, I'M F*CKING 30 MILES AWAY. WHAT THE F*CK DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?"
He says he'd never mistreat me but as a kid I was always taught that a man will treat you no better than he treats his mother.
What do you think?
Should I break up with him?

I'm betting he just has problems controlling his temper. Oh. Plus his mother was probably annoying as hell, and so she deserved what she got.
As for the mother-girlfriend comparison, I completely disagree. I treat my mother like crap, but she's earned it. We have a mutual understanding. Long story. Anyway, I treat people as they deserve to be treated - at least in my eyes. If anyone was to judge how I'd act towards a girlfriend by looking at how my mother and I get along, they'd run away screaming. They'd also be wrong. Assuming the girlfriend hadn't been a part of all the stuff that has gone on in my family, I'd have no reason to treat her like I treat them.1
