I was starting to really dislike your mother reading your post.

And agree with Anna.

Yes. Moving out was the right thing to do. No. You didn't do anything wrong. Your mother is trying to control your life and what she wants for you, is not what's best for you. Her priorities are different from yours. She thinks as long a man provides for you, he can treat you any way he wants. In this day and age, we know better. If you stay under your mother's thumb, you won't be able to build your life the way you want it. Being friends with your mother seems to come at a high price. If she decides she never wants to talk to you again, then you may want to let out a sigh of relief. It seems she will always try to control you as long as you remain "friends" with her.

Hi Nella,

I am Italian, and understand the traditionalist attitude your mother has.
