I was born to an Atheist father and Methodist mother. They divorced when I was 8 and we moved to PA, a mile from my Methodist grandparents, with my gram being anti-Catholic. My mom married a man about two years after we moved home, then she divorced him also, and we moved back near my grandparents, who helped raise me. For the past three or four years my mom has been dating a man. He is very nice but a very liberal Democrat who I disagree with on many of his views, he is Methodist too. She recently moved in with him before I left for college, citing her reason being she needs to pay for my college. She has always done alot for me but has always been very critical and somewhat…dense maybe a good word. Almost like a deer caught in the headlights sortof. She has always provided but is a huge hypocrite. The guy she is living with now has changed her in many ways. I mention this to tell this ongoing story.
I began dating a Catholic girl, which I objected to but now love Catholicism. Anyway, my mom has always been controlling. She objects anytime I goto my girlfriends house and is only happy when we do what she says. It is hurting my girlfriend and I so much. She is so immature in so many ways. She wont even tell me she loves me. I have talked to a counselor and others. Everyone, but my Gram, has said I am right. I just dont know what to do. Please help me.
