Your MIL doesn't sound depressed; she sounds manipulative. I'm going through the same thing right now. (Except we've been married 7 months, together for 6 1/2 years, and lived together for 5 1/2 years.) <br />
If I could do the whole thing over, I would have insisted on boundaries long ago. Does she have a driver's license? Or know how the bus system works? If yes to either, she's perfectly capable of getting her own groceries and getting herself to her hair appointments. <br />
I recommend doing some reading on enmeshed men and manipulative mothers (in law). Their relationship is not normal, nor is their relationship fair to you. Please-- think long and hard about your wants in life. My MIL started off just wanting to talk to my husband at odd hours of the day/night, and now she's trying to destroy our marriage. Please, arm yourself with knowledge, and knowing that you probably won't ever be able to fully extract him from your clutches, decide whether this is a relationship you want. <br />
Best of luck to you!
Be strong, insistent, straight forward and hold your ground when explaining to her that you're an item with her son & not her! Put a stop to it now or else you 3 will be a constant pain to each other in the future.
If you marry this guy, you're in for a lifetime of dealing with his mommy, her depression, and their dependence on each other. Watch Bates Motel or better yet, Psycho the movie.
Make her respect you. Either force her to see you are the stronger ***** in the yard or just get along with her. She's basically marking her territory and you have to deal with it.
**** that. Let nothing pass. You are the one in charge now.
Tell your husband that you need his support. It' your way or the highway.
Good luck :) I think you will need it.
You be extra careful :) As you see. You are getting some helpful advise..
So many relationships die because of mother in laws..
