  • for me it was something his mom would do more than the father. So that is way he thinks this house is run but it is not and one reason for the divorce I am currently going through. I already have 3 kids and do not need a another one.

  • I agree with flowersmama and momindiana, I think it has to do with how their household is run but at the same time there is something lacking in their upbringing. That's why I will not tolerate Mama's boys because they expect you to take over their mother's job and take care of them rather than seeing your relationship as a partnership.

  • I'm not too sure, I imagine if you let them then they will act like that? I really don't know lol. My fiance is the man of the house and he's always been like that :P

  • I'm of the opinion that it's because boys aren't being taught how to be men any more. There is no passing down from father to son that a man works & supports his family, is head of the household and does what needs to be done to make sure that his wife & kids are provided for. To quote King Julian from Madagascar "They're all a bunch of pansies". LMAO Most men are Mama's boys and their Mama has taught them that their asses are gold plated and that a woman ought to feel blessed just by being in their mere presence. A lot of them won't hold a job, expecting their SO to work and support them, and if their SO is stupid enough to do it, I guess you deserve what you get.
