Some of the other responses bring up a salient point, in my opinion. In the absence of a healthy relationship, how does the guy relate to others?
I was very close to my grandmother, who tried to fill the gaps of my mother's absence. As a teen, since my mother was away most of the time, I did the cooking and cleaning, trying to keep some semblance of family together. Now that my mother is so different, I handle her legal and financial issues with the retirement. There's just never been any angry back and forth arguments between us. The thing that really moved my wife was my relationship with her mother. Of course, it annoyed her to no end that her mom took my side whenever we differed.
