How do you deal with your husband who is a mama's boy? And with your mother-in-law who is seems to be so dependent to her son?

Men who are mamma's boys are so difficult to deal with and sadly most men are like this. What I have learnt from my experience is with men you should never bad mouth his mother. Do not say anything bad about his mother, and when you are good to his mother, he will automatically be nice to you. Yes, if being nice to his mother is the challenge then sit with him, and discuss with him the whole situation and what is making you uncomfortable. Tell him that you do not mind what and how you deal with other relationship in your life (not naming his mother) but you would want him to give you attention and priority as the wife should be given in a man's life.

It is a very difficult situation than it appears, because till the time the man himself does not realise this (which he never will) or till the time he starts giving priority to his wife, the situation remains the same no matter how much you try to put sense to him. I suggest, do not get into their relationship and you just focus on what you as his woman want personally out of him. Let him be a mamma's boy but make sure that he is taking care of you well and the way he is dedicated to his mother, he is also loving and caring towards you.

My take, dapat napag-uusapan sana ung magiging set up before getting married knowing na mama's boy ung guy. But since you're already in the situation, the best thing you can do is open up to your husband. Just make sure not to talk ill about his mom kasi baka mas lalo mgtrigger ng gulo. Explain well to him that he has his own family now. Hindi mo naman sya pinagbabawalan pumunta sa family nya, but he has to realize his priorities as a married man.

I'll talk to my husband and tell him his responsibilities (in a nice way). As long as he prioritizes us as his immediate family, I'm okay no matter how close he is with his mom. As for my MIL, as long as she knows her place I don't mind if he depends on her son. After all, she's still my husband's mom.
