Partner will not stand up for me to his mum even as I'm expecting our second baby

I am 26, my partner is 28 and I was soon pregnant again. We were overjoyed and told our families. Mine were happy but his family were not.

His mum has never liked me and after we told them she hasn’t spoken to me.

He talks to her every day and takes our daughter to see her at weekends but I am not welcome. I end up staying at home, while they all have family time together.

It is causing a lot of arguments between us. I don’t want to stop him speaking to his mum but he will not stand up for me.

DEIDRE SAYS: That’s not OK. Tell him you understand that it’s hard to stand up to his mother but your children will be upset to see their mum rejected like that.

Be firm and insist he tells his mum you are his choice of partner and the mother of his children. He can suggest meeting somewhere neutral to break the deadlock.

My e-leaflet on Standing Up For Yourself will help him to be clear with her.
