Why should you be forced to choose? You should choose both and not have to make a decision between the person who has brought you up and the person that you are romantically involved with.

I agree with Cool Cucumber, it is a difficult choice as long as doesn't sound like blackmail, you should really don't have to make choice on this. You partner should have a open undrestanding of your relationship and commitments to your mum. The is only one mum in this world, I am not saying for that reason you should let someone you love to walk away, but I can also garantee you will find the better one who loves you more undrestand that you shouldn't even get in to this position of making choice between your partner and you mum.

I short answer I go for the mum choice.

However more info needed in this case.

Good luck

A reader, anonymous, writes (7 February 2007):

Depends on the situation as others have mentioned, but I wouldn't choose just one of the two. It is in my perspective too unrefined to be given that ultimatum by either person. They make up a different aspect of my life, both are equally as important by concept, and I would glady give my life to either or if the situation calls for it. Otherwise if either one forces an ultimatum, I would simply see them as petty. Since I cannot simply ditch my mom or my parents for that fact, if my mate has major problems with my mom, then most likely those problems arise from jealousy or miscommunication or the usual pettiness.

Remember, my mate is my intimate companion. My mom is my mother. It's like asking me "Which would you choose to cut off - you right arm or your right leg?"

Which limb would you choose to cut off Ms. 22-25 Anon?

cd206 agony auntDepends how serious the partner was. I'd be inclined to say family last longer than lovers but if I were married to a great guy my answer might be different. Want to provide some context?
