Oh boy, am I familiar with your situation! I was going out with this guy, and his mum was a complete FREAK.
She spent the whole time bad mouthing his ex-girlfriend to me, but once she got comfortable enough, she started sending him emails telling him to
leave me, she turned their entire family against us both "because I was using him for his money" (what money?!), she went to my mums house (which was
empty because my mum was abroad) and started opening her mail, trying to dig up secrets on my family. When he and I got engaged, she went into
over-drive, being openly nasty to me.
They were planning on emigrating, and she made it very open and clear she didn't want me to go with them. She asked my ex if my engagement ring was
the same one that he gave his ex (hers was gold and emerald, mine was white gold and diamonds.... totally the same).
When we broke up, she threatened me with violence, in front of my 6'4 brother. She didn't realise he was there, and when he appeared, she thought
she'd start on him for smoking in my house! This tiny 5' woman trying to take on a 6'4 man, needless to say, her efforts were unsuccessful, and she
I've since learnt that she was totally mental at all his previous girlfriends, and now has no contact with any of her sons. My ex is now married, and
has had 3 children, and she doesn't see any of them because of the strife she causes him.
Basically, I think women become like this because they are used to having complete control. Ex's mum was head honcho, to the point where her own
husband was working nights and would get home at 4-5am, and she demanded he was up by 9am, he was totally cowed by her.
