We are all aware that there is a narrow line between a man who loves and respects his mother and a man who cowers before her and always takes her side. It always appears to be the guys who essentially want their wife to be their mother and maid who actually have no regard for any women other than their mother. Read the story to know what issue took place and let us know what you would have done.
I’ll start this off by saying that I, f32 have been with my husband Bob, m39 for 3 years, married for one. His mom has a habit of keeping me out of most of their functions with the excuse of “you work too much”. Not true because sometimes I do make myself available but yet find myself excluded.
Last week. His mom invited us for a celebratory dinner at the restaurant after she completed her recovery. I had to work that day but I let her and everyone know that I’d be there at 8pm. Bob obviously knew I was coming.
Thing is, when I arrived at the restaurant I saw that the table was full. All chairs had been taken and I just stood there with complete puzzlement while Bob and his mom just stared at me. His mom then told me there was no place left for me and that I could either have Bob get up and take his seat or …. go home.
I was so upset but instead of going home I just went and took an entire table for me. Bob and his mom watched with their eyes popping out of their heads like they saw something so shocking… NGL I did get weird looks from the guests but so did Bob and his mom. It was awkward in all honesty.
I had my dinner, dessert, then went home. I saw Bob and his mom staring grudgingly while I was making my way out. He got home an hour later and yelled saying I embarrassed his mom infront of her guests. I yelled asking WTF was I supposed to do after I got denied a seat and he told me that it wasn’t his nor his mom’s fault guests arrived “before” me and took all the available chairs. I told him he could’ve saved me a chair!!!!!. he said that I could’ve just left instead, and reminded me that I was a “guest” and that I shouldn’t expect this level of entitlement to be “accepted”. He then went on about how I ruined the entire dinner for him and his mom with what I did and has been pouting about it for days now.
I don’t get it, I really don’t. Was my expectation really that entitled? I mean as his wife he should’ve saved me a seat. But clearly I’m missing something here.
