That is, in effect, a marriage with the wrong person.
Edit: I want you to know, I'm not saying that to be mean or hurtful. I just know from experience that you're living through a narrow window of your life right now where, to be a man in the future, you NEED to get out on your own now. Just sayin'.
wait, what? How am I remaining in the care and company of my mother when I live on my own, and see her maybe once a week for lunch?..... I'm not offended at all, and don't think you're being or even trying to be mean or hurtful. I think we're misunderstanding each other here.
PS - when I say I "see her for lunch" I'm the one that buys our lunch, not her.
