What my son’s girlfriend said ruined our relationship

Dear Amy: My 26-year-old son has been dating a girl for more than two years. We all get along really well.

My husband and I recently moved two hours away and have stayed at their apartment approximately five times over the past eight months.

We stay only one night and usually take them out to dinner or have other fun activities with them while visiting.

One time, we were there to see other friends, but staying with them was still handy because they keep an eye on our dogs.

My son doesn’t mind at all, as he has told us.

I recently found out his girlfriend does mind and has told him that we abuse their hospitality and that she doesn’t feel comfortable in her own home when we’re there (although she has no problem accepting free meals/drinks from us).

My son recently tried to break up with her (before this situation arose), but she talked him out of it.

I’m so distraught and hurt. I no longer feel comfortable staying there. Nor do I feel comfortable having her stay at our home or even being around her.

Our son told her he is not happy about this but is generally avoiding confrontation.

She doesn’t know that he told me how she feels.

Any advice?


Dear Upset: I take it that you are arranging these visits with your son, and he is conveying the information to his girlfriend after he has agreed to your plan.

It might help if you viewed this from her point of view. After all, this is her home, too.
