5 reasons why you should marry a Mama’s Boy!
Marriages are made in heaven. It’s a beautiful relationship that one shares with his or her partner. The term Mama’s boy is attached with a lot of stereotypes. People assume that a man who is often cribbing, effeminate, excessively dependent emotionally on his mother and not capable of taking firm decisions is called Mama’s boy. Compare this with the positive connotations attached with being a daddy’s girl, who is considered to be independent, yet protected and pampered to the verge of being spoil. There is no logical reason for such a gender bias; why should being a daddy’s girl be considered cool while it is a taboo to be a mama’s boy?
Being a mama’s boy is stigmatized universally, in all countries and communities. In India, the television serials do a great job of glorifying the situation of the guy caught between listening to his mother and supporting his wife. They also exaggerate the miserable situation of the woman married to the mama’s boy because she is devoid of her husband’s love, trust, support and what not. This is totally unrealistic and we must say these Indian TV soaps are giving wrong message to viewers.
Here are top 5 reasons why you should choose a Mama’s boy as your soul mate:
1. He will unconditionally pour his love on you and always respect you: According to famous saying, “A man who treats his woman like a PRINCESS is a proof that he has been born and raised in the arms of a QUEEN.” Such a man will not let his ‘male chauvinistic pride’, come every time in the way of his relationship. He will genuinely try to understand and respect your point of view since he is actually more in tune with the women around him.
2. He is very much strong and responsible: Mothers are the children first teacher, guide, mentor and friend. She not only pampers him endlessly but also instills values and sense of responsibility in him. A mama’s boy is not selfish or self-centred and understands his responsibilities towards his family. He is strong both emotionally and physically and is capable of protecting you against all the odds.
3. He is emotionally intelligent: One of the things that mothers who are close to their sons do is teach them emotional intelligence– the ability to recognize and articulate their feelings, and also to understand those of others. These boys grow up to be better communicators and more emotionally sensitive, so they make better partners. He will always understand your unsaid feelings.
4. He is expressive: He will not be like other men who do not believe in expressing their values. He will always always express his or her true feelings. What more, you will not be the only one responsible for breaking the ice after every fight. Trust on him to take his share of initiatives and resolve the arguments through proper communication.
5 . He needs you and he will not afraid of showing it to the world: After his mother, you are the one who is going to make a strong presence and impression in his life. Many women complain about their husbands being attached to their mother or consulting them in every big or small decision. In such a situation, what women must understand is that they have grown up with this habit. You will have to make a concerted effort to gel up with your mother-in-law, and at the same time work towards being the most important woman in your husband’s life. It is about earning respect he has reserved exclusively for his mother, while keeping your own identity intact.
