Just needed to rant somewhere and i hope fellow singaporeans are able to relate to my problem.
My mom is ruining my long-term relationship with my partner. We met in school and have been in a relationship for going 5 years.
These 5 years, my mom has never been satisfied with my boyfriend. We’re in our mid 20s now and she still thinks he’s immature despite him consistently trying to improve himself. She always nitpicks on his tiny/old bad habits whenever he comes over.
My mom and him don’t talk much as my mom doesn’t speak english while mandarin is not my bf’s best language.
Recently, my mom called up a relative who has been unofficially practicing suan ming (fate calculating), and my relative predicted that i’ll surely divorce with my bf if we ever got married.
I know marriage should be between couple but i hate how my mom always rubs the old saying in my face, ‘Marriage without parent’s blessing will never be blissful’.
My bf has tried many ways to improve the relationship but my mom chose to only see the bad in him.
My mom is ruining my relationship but i also hate to be an unfilial child. I feel like i’m being kiap in the middle and just needed to talk to someone.
