Setting boundaries with disapproving mom. Congrats on the engagement! 🎉
"NTA You've set a hard boundary with your mother now and she's throwing a tantrum. It's good that you've done this now instead of letting her continue to behave badly towards Tonya in the years to come when you're married. A man should be the buffer between his mother and gf/fiance/wife and set the boundaries when and where they're needed. Your mother will likely make it difficult, but stick to this demand for respect and civil behavior from her. Yes, Tonya was a young mother, but that doesn't mean she's a bad person. In fact I have a lot of respect for Tonya for waiting as long as she did before introducing you to her child. To me that means that child is more important to her than anything else and she's was protecting him from possible heartache or weirdos."
NTA: Mother ruins engagement announcement, you kick her out 🚫
ESH: Mom's nosiness, OP's enabling. Fiancée hurt by repeated behavior.
"NTA, You stood up for your family! 👏🏼 Cut out toxic relatives!"
