Marry a Momma’s Boy?

Dear Frankly,

I have been seeing a guy for 2 years. Ever since we started dating he has had another woman in his life — his mother. When she’s around, I do not exist! He uses her as his confidante and solicits her opinion about everything. I’ve expressed my discomfort with their relationship, but to no avail. There has been talk of our becoming engaged lately, but I can’t marry a man who puts his mother before me. Am I wrong to feel this way?

Almost Engaged Emma

Dear Engaged,

My third husband was a momma’s boy. It was endearing, at first, but after a couple of months I realized the jellyfish couldn’t make a decision without calling home. When I learned that included tips on how to appease me, it was over. Run, dear. Run fast to the exit.

Dear Frankly,

I can’t help but notice that you are constantly bashing males in your columns. I also have taken note that you have been married at least six times. I wonder if perhaps you are one of those women who just hates men, no matter what qualities they may possess. You hasten to point out the flaws of every man complained about in every letter from some whining woman, while never printing a man’s letter. Why is that?

Manly Man

Dear Manly,

I have been answering letters for 21 years, and have often published letters from men, including yours. I don’t hate all men. I expect that the women who write are seeking a final attempt to salvage their relationship with the sniveling little ferrets they are attracted to.
