How do I show my spouse I am not his mother? Song of Solomon 6:3

/carl and Yolanda Bennet answer your marriage questions"Your husband's mother played an important role in his life, nurturing him and teaching him how to become an independent person in his own right.  You have to explain to him that even though you may do some of the same things his mother did, you do them for a different reason.  You do them because you and your husband are a team, each with a part to play.

Discuss together your expectations regarding participation and encourage him to participate in the operations of your household through the sharing of chores and responsibilities and then attempt to assign responsibilities accordingly.

I do not believe your husband married you because he needed someone to look after him or to cook and clean for him. Treat him as your best friend, your lover, and your hero and he will be quick to respond by treating you like the diva you are."
