My boyfriend is almost eighteen years old and absolutely adores his mother, sometimes he will joke and call her the "spawn of satan" due to her rules, but underneath that he loves her more than anything. I think this is really beautiful and I love that he has so much respect for her, but when it interferes with our relationship it starts to bug me. A lot of stress is put on him from his family because of certain circumstances, and he won't even talk to me about it because his mother doesn't want him to, therefore I'm unable to be there for him or understand his situation. She places strict rules on him when he's going to be legally an adult in a few months, how would you handle this? I understand curfews, etc, since he hasn't yet reached eighteen, but there are some unreasonable "rules" that I can't seem to understand.
What would you do?

The question is how long would it take for an unsupervised 17 year old to end up in jail?0

Don't think that's a bad thing that he really respects his mother, really is a good trait among men as many learn how to be good to women through having a close relationship with their mom. However regarding the rule thing when he's 18, just tell him to ask her to be flexible, if she loves her son and trusts him then there doesn't need to be so many rules. If he won't ask then just don't even get involved, trust me you don't wanna come between family or create tension (I've been there done that, they always support their mum and then you look like a bitch).0
