My boyfriend’s mum cuts me out of photos and wants nothing to do with me

DEAR DEIDRE: IT doesn’t matter how much effort I make with my boyfriend’s mum, she is determined to hate me.

I’m 25 and he’s 26. We have been together for three years but it’s really getting me down.

My boyfriend’s mum is literally cutting me out

If I’m there at dinner time she never offers me food, never invites me anywhere and rarely speaks to me.

Recently she put a photo of him on their mantlepiece. In the original I was next to him and she cut me out!

My boyfriend says I’m overthinking it. How can I have a future with him when his own mum won’t accept me?

DEIDRE SAYS: Some mothers struggle to share their sons with new partners.

And it sounds like his mum is jealous of your relationship.

As long as your boyfriend allows his mum to treat you this way, she will continue.

Tell him how much the situation is upsetting you.

Ask him to explain to her that mistreating you hurts him.

Only when she sees she can’t get away with it, will she stop.

He could start by asking her to swap that photo for the original.
