She Just Moved in With Her Partner, But When His Mother Called and Demanded She Rent One of Their Spare Rooms, She Refused

A woman said she recently moved into a house with her partner, and his mother has since contacted him to tell him that she is unable to afford her current house. When his mother asked if she could stay there with them, the woman refused. Here’s what she had to say.

The woman and her partner of five years have recently moved in together. He had last been living with his mother, with whom he shared rent. As she “loves to talk negatively about everyone around her,” the woman did not want to have to deal with his mother much.

The mother of the woman’s partner has “badmouthed each of her children’s partners” in front of her, noting that she has never felt anyone has ever been good enough for her children. She has never said anything to the woman’s face, but she has come to expect nothing less.

Despite the woman and her partner setting boundaries since moving in, his mother has never respected them. She will visit when she pleases and has hosted a party at their home before. She also chose the couches for the new house and tried to decide where everything should go.

Recently, a house next to the woman’s house went up for sale, and her partner’s mother wanted to move in there. She realized, however, that she would not be able to afford the mortgage and so abandoned the idea.

Some time after being priced out of moving, the woman’s partner got a call from his mother. She was crying about not being able to afford her place anymore and asked if she could rent one of their spare rooms. Both the woman and her partner work from home and have converted bedrooms into offices.

“I, off the bat, told him no, considering we would have to work around her schedule and have become accustomed to our routine as a couple,” she said. “Also, we would be reduced to one bathroom.”

The woman and her partner are wanting to start a family quite soon, so she feels that it is quite inconsiderate for his mother to want to intrude on their living situation. She thinks this is especially awkward, seeing as he has just moved away from living with her.

Her partner’s mother continues to call him, constantly ringing up while crying to ask if he has found a solution to her problem yet. The woman has noticed, however, that she has never asked for her opinion.

The woman knows that her partner is one of six children, so she is confused as to why his mother is constantly asking them for help rather than any of her other five children. She assumes it’s because they don’t have any children yet.

She has told her partner that she very much dislikes the idea of his mother living with them. She thinks that these concerns just “fly over his head,” however, as he continues to ask for her thoughts on the matter, as if she would change her mind.

The internet responded

One person said, “You don’t have a mother-in-law problem; you have a partner problem. You need to establish your boundaries with your partner and tell him that this isn’t okay.”

Another commenter noted, “It will destroy your relationship, and I highly doubt that she really can’t afford it; she just doesn’t want to let her son go.”
