MIL doesn’t date, her son told her “not to”
My MIL is single/divorced (despite whatever weird relationship is going on with her ex-husband... I won’t go into details lol). During a tumultuous time in their life, my husband had to step up and become the adult early on in his life. He always said, “you don’t date or marry anyone, no one will treat you well” as a means of protecting/loving his single mom. They were very close for a while until I showed up/got married to him... and that’s a normal thing. I get why he said that. Despite it being “jokey”. But I think she took that seriously and has joked with me about how men ask if she’s single, and she says no. Now, I feel she doesn’t have a partner/spouse so I fear she will be lonely and/or obsess over my child. (The latter related to the former lol). Anyone experience this? Thoughts?
