| | Help me with this Mama's boy PLEASE!!!
My boyfriend and I have been together for a while, and we live together in a rented house. We have talked about marriage A LOT and he told me before we even got into a relationship that he was in love with me. We would joke around "proposing" to each other while we are watching something romantic or funny. But me being a wedding fanatic, after awhile I stopped doing that and I told him to stop as well. Anyway, my boyfriend is going into the Air Force, and so, he told me he will propose to me one day out of these four months, months before basic.... He never did.... because weeks later(after he told me that), his MOM made him promise not to ask me to marry him til after basic, which is STUPID(btw he is her only child)!!! So now we are in a situation, where he may not be able to go home after basic training from the looks of things and he will go to tech school afterward. Well while he is in tech school we planned to get married so our family can be at our wedding before we get shipped to the first base of our choosing(England). But there is barely enough time to send out wedding invitations and have everything set and paid for, for the big day...... So I have been trying to talk to him into telling his mom that he can't keep that promise, and he keeps getting mad b/c he said talking to her wouldn't do any of us any good. And I almost cried when he asked me to marry him(but he was joking around about that) by typing on my phone back and forth(while we were eating at a sushi buffet restaurant), and I nearly blew up in his face but I kept my calm saying 'don't ever joke around about proposing to me again, because it hurts me. The only time I want you to say them are when you are actually proposing to me.' He looked sad, but we finished our meals and went to watch Paul to lighten the mood...... My question to all of you is how can I convince him that his mom is wrong to make him promise such a thing and that he is an adult and if he wants to propose to me he can without his mommy's permission?
