I'm in my late thirties,married and my mother who is single (divorced for 30 years never wanted to remarry) has been dropping hints that she intends to move in some day.
she acts as though the last thirty years are just some dress rehearsal and she plans to end up living with me and my husband. How do I talk to her? I probably should have nipped it in the bud along time ago but I need advise or maybe a book suggestion on how to do it. She in 63 now will retire in a couple of years and considers me her "Ace in the whole" for those "golden years" My mother is a pretty typical "wounded soul" my father drank and they divorced after 10 years.
She soaks up pitty fairly well.
Thanks,
Carolyn

Just say no, mom I love you and want to continue loving you, I am pretty stuck in my ways, and sorry... if you get married, well your husband comes first, and you should have your own space for him and your future family.
Now, since you know you are stuck, and don't sound real strong about this, consider when you do purchase your dream home one with a mother in law, hehe unit. Or a duplex with a single story apt for her so she can have her ace in the hole, some of her money to finance it, and your space too. Ugh ugh she isn't open to adoption is she, instant second choice?
