Is That Good Or Bad?
Moms can be our best friends in the world, and we’d love nothing more than to be like the strong, caring woman who raised us, but that doesn’t always mean our partners feel the same way about our favorite lady in our life. It almost feels like a TV trope for husbands to loathe their mother-in-law, but in this case, art is imitating life.
Not everyone has the BFF feeling for their mom either, so telling your partner they’re just like their mom can feel like a profoundly wounding insult. Some of us also don’t want to be made to feel old. How about you? Would you wear the “just like mom” badge with pride, or are you going to tuck it into your grudge pocket to whip it out in the following argument?
