A son’s love for his mother is never a bad thing.
As a matter of fact, a man’s ability to treat his woman right can be judged by the way he treats and relates with his mother.
However deep a man’s love for his mother is, though, there comes a point when he splits a substantial amount of it and showers it on his woman.
When that stage comes, his ability to properly deal with the transition will determine if he has achieved complete maturation, or still a mama’s boy.
How do you know that your man is really as mature as you think he is, and not just a mere mama’s boy?
His conversations with you are filled with mentions of his mummy this, his mummy that… (Mademenoire)
If he cannot speak for five minutes without mentioning his mum at least once, you have a problem on your hands.
Can’t make decisions without informing her
Even if the decision is something really as clear as crystal, a total no-brainer, he still whips out his phone to call her and confirm before doing it.
He’s never been married, but he has a kid who is being taken care of by… [you guessed right] his mother.
That he is an unmarried man who has a kid is not a big deal, actually.
What should be a concern to you is the fact that he actually does not know anything about the child – not the amount of his diapers, or the amount he pays at daycare, he does not even know how much baby food costs.
Why? Because he is terribly irresponsible and has never been involved in doing any of those things since the birth of the child. His mother has been helping him out since.
I’d be worried about being with such man if I were you.
Can’t stand up for you
Especially when the mother is clearly being irrational.
A man that is a mummy’s boy just sits there and lets his mom disrespect you, because defying her might mean the end of his car ownership, monthly allowance, etc.
Remember we are not talking about a 15year old here. We are talking about an adult who is meant to have outgrown sucking from his mother’s chest.
Doesn’t sound right to you, too, does it?
He’s still very financially dependent on his mum
“Hey babe, the bill for this is ₦5000,” you say to him.
So he whips out his wallet and hands over his ATM card to you. No problem, except that the card is not really his.
You then remember that the same thing happened the previous two times you went out, too.
He is so irresponsible and disorderly that he can’t even sort out his own finances and has to depend on mummy.
Let me be the first to break it to you, lady, you’re in for one heck of a ride.
