My boyfriend’s mom is constantly coming into our room

” My boyfriend’s mom is constantly coming into our room. We can’t have any privacy because she’ll just walk in at a moments notice without a thought. We’re all adults, but how do I say anything to make it better, without making it weird?”


I suggest installing a lock, that you two pay for. Don’t make the mom uncomfortable in her own house, she’s probably used to doing that since he was a young boy. Instead, I would tell your boyfriend to talk to his mom to settle the situation easily. If he can’t get his point across without an argument, maybe it’s a good idea for you to diffuse the situation and bring things down from a simmer. Make sure to get your point of view across as respectfully as possible, because it is her house after all.
