"NTA Do NOT marry this guy. He will always put his mother first and he will never have your back. If you ignore my advice and stay with him, use long-term birth control (implant or iud) that can't be tampered with and maintain your own bank account for your income/savings. Because his mother can't be trusted not to mess with your birth control and your fiancee will give his mother your savings if she asks for it." - This commenter gives important advice for dealing with a controlling future mother-in-law and a fiance who prioritizes her over you. 👍
