    Ooops...sorry about the previous note with my friend's name! I hope the administrator can delete it for me.

    Anyway, my friend's mother is attached to my friend (37 years old) in every which way, and has to know his every move. The mom and son share the mortgage on the house together, and won't allow the girlfriend to come into the house. The mom throws a fit if she finds out that they're together that he often has to lie to his mom about everything related to the girlfriend. The girlfriend is pregnant girlfriend (due in Dec), and wants nothing to do with the grandchild.

    I stayed with them for a few weeks, and she confided in me that she hates the girlfriend, and has threatened to leave the country because they are about to have a baby together. She thinks her son will follow her if she does decides to leave, and it's sickening. My friend is being controlled to a point that he's afraid to stick up for his pregnant girlfriend. I tried to convince her to see how ridiculous her behavior is, and she only responds, "I don't care..." It's actually quite frightening how unreasonable she is.

    At this point, I can't relate to her thinking-process, but wish that I could somehow help my friend.
