My husband loves his mother, but is very, very conflicted about her... He wouldn't say anything mean - or positive - to her, about her.
Before I met her in person, he was very hesitant about us meeting. He described her as "not right" explained how her personality was inconsistent - how she'd recently found God and changed.
Later I'd find emails he'd sent to his best friend, describing her far worse - overbearing, insane, crazy, etc. Words he might now use to describe me... Only he puts me down to my face.
Say anything bad about her, though, and he will come to her defense.
Personally, I like his mom. A LOT. I've found her to be extremely sweet, compassionate, open-minded, and yes, well, a devout Christian. Nothing wrong with that, if that's your thing. Posted via Mobile Device
