Subject: Romantic vacation with his mom
Dear Steve and Shirley, I have been dating a guy for about 6 months and for the most part, things are going really well. For my birthday, we planned a cruise. Just the two of us. The cruise has been booked and flights have been arranged for months. Out of the blue, he asked me if I would mind if his mother went on the cruise. Apparently they had already discussed it before he asked me. I didn’t want to sound like a B so I said, “Fine,” but it was eating me up inside. Why would he want to take his mother on our “couples only” cruise? Recently, I told him that I didn’t feel it was an appropriate time for his mother to be traveling with us. I told him that we can plan a family vacation in the future, but she shouldn’t go on this cruise with us. This will be my first cruise and my 30th birthday… and it would be our first vacation together. He got upset and said that she will be on the same boat, but she won’t bother us. I feel that she will be wanting to hang around and I don’t want to hang out with his mother on our romantic cruise. He said he would tell his mother that she can not go, but he has failed to do so. What should I do?
