My mother thinks my man is cheating


April 14, 2016

Dear Pastor,

I have always been fond of your articles, and now I believe that I need some advice from you about choices I have made in my life. I am a 23-year-old young lady and I have known my boyfriend for approximately three years. We are best friends, we talk about everything. We have trust in our relationship.

The only issue is that my

mother doesn't accept him and I don't know what to do. I have tried to tell her that he is nothing like my ex-boyfriend, but she thinks he is cheating on me because he lives far from where I live.

I have plans to marry this man because he makes me happy and I won't allow anyone to ruin my happiness. He helps me emotionally and he pushes me to further my education, get a career and also get a skill.

What am I supposed to do? I eagerly await your response.


Dear S.P.,

Your mother has no proof that this man is cheating on you. And, to be very frank, she needs to stop meddling in your relationship. Sometimes parents can give good advice, but there are times when they can be nothing but a pain in the neck. And, right now, she is more of a distraction in your life. It appears as if your mother is determined to make you very unhappy.

Just to assume that a man is cheating is not a good reason for a mother to give her daughter as proof that her boyfriend is no good.

My suggestion, therefore, is that you continue in this relationship and be very careful. Make sure you do not allow this man to use you or to get you pregnant.

I cannot with a clear conscience encourage you to end this relationship.
