‘My husband is a mama’s boy, he gives his mum more attention than me’


Dear Aunty Lisa

I am a 35-year-old woman and have been married for 13 years. We have a 12-year-old kid.

My husband is a mummy’s boy and has never respected our relationship. If I argue or ask him about anything, he shares everything with his mother.

He calls his mother everyday. If he doesn’t, she will call him and ask if “he is still alive,” to which he doesn’t see anything wrong, as being the mother, she can come and visit any time she wants and call anytime she wishes, according to him. That’s our biggest point of contention in our marriage, as my parents raised me quite differently.

Could you please help me to deal with this? Should I admit to him that I am jealous of his relationship with his mother? Should we both pray about this, or should I keep it in my private worship time? How do I lovingly confront him about this situation without seeming heartless and rude?
