Well, elly, I suppose your husband is being childish, and showing a great degree of insecurity, but you may find it more useful to try to understansd this and to work with it. It's sad to hear of someone too scared to find the confidence even to talk to his wife, unless he is drunk first. I wouldn't pass judgement on the extreme closeness of his relationship with his mother, but of course one can see an enormous problem looming - if he tries to think that she will live forever, well, we all know that she will not, and that unless he manages to grow up and become more independent, he will probably be devastated when she does die. COuld you manage to persuade him to join you in some marriage counselling, to work on these issues, for the sake of all of you ?
