  • Omg my SO is like that! The hard thing for me is, we live with her. I just flat out told my guy that I should be his number one in his life and he needs to come to me before his mother. Not trying to sound controlling, but it makes me mad when my SO does that... Another thing I think is "Is he married to me or his mother?" Hope this helps. :)

  • The trick is to make him realize he's doing it. If he doesn't see it, then start pointing it out each time he puts her first. Do it in such a way that he doesn't feel attacked, or else he will turn defensive and probably stay blind to his actions.

  • I don't, I actually left my ex-fiance for this reason.
