Mama’s boys are harmless and adorable beings who know how to respect a woman and take care of her. Don’t roll your eyes ladies, for this has been proven through numerous research studies. The stereotypical representation of mama’s boys has led to negative connotations around the word. It typically means a man who’s often cribbing, effeminate, excessively dependent emotionally on his mother and not capable of taking firm decisions.
Compare this with the positive connotations attached with daddy’s girl, who’s considered to be independent, protected and pampered to the verge of being spoilt. I don’t understand why being daddy’s girl is cool and it’s a taboo to be a mama’s boy. Some feminist conspiracy, I say!
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’s devoid of her husband’s love, trust, support and what not. This portrayal is totally unrealistic and there are more than enough benefits for marrying a man who loves his mother.
Marry him for unconditional love and respect
There’s a famous saying that, “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 (MCP) come every time in way of his relationship and will genuinely try to understand and respect your point of view.
Marry him because he’s strong and responsible
Mother is a child’s first teacher, guide and mentor. She not only pampers him endlessly but also instills values and sense of responsibility in him. Mama’s boy is not selfish or self-centered and understands his responsibilities towards his family. He is strong, emotionally and physically, and capable of protecting you against all odds.
Marry him because he believes in expressing his feelings
He’s not like other men who trivialize the value of emotions, don’t believe in candid confessions and consider themselves too good to explain their actions/decisions. He will put your feelings above his and will always be by your side during the crimson tide. What more, you’ll 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.
Marry him because he needs you
After his mother, you are the one who’s going to make a strong presence and impression in his life. Many females complain about their husbands being attached to their mother’s apron strings or consulting them in every big or small decision. What these females don’t understand is that it’s a habit they’ve grown up with. They will have to make a concerted effort to gel up with their mother-in-law and at the same time work towards being the most important woman in their husband’s life. It is about earning the respect he’s reserved exclusively for his mother while keeping your own identity intact.
You see, a mama’s boy can be smart, intelligent, rich and handsome without being egoistic, non-expressive, chauvinistic and boorish.
