      That guy sounds awesome but what a nightmare MIL for his future spouse. Poor guy.

        It’s not inconceivable to me that he said *something* to her about being unsure of how to navigate romantic boundaries in light of society’s greater consciousness of these things(while at the same time say believing victims of sexual assault and treating it as a serious problem) and she kind of ran with it in a nutso way.

        Maybe she was badgering him about his personal life and he told her that to get her to leave him alone.

      I really don’t think he did Fyodor, him and his brother have mentioned their mum has spent time in a mental health clinic before. Subtext indicates they’re 100% done with her shit.

    The article about we-talk reminds me of an episode of How I Met Your Mother where Robin is dating a guy who is super couple-y, share-y, and into we-talk. He declares they love tiramisu, and Robin asks if that’s really a group activity. Haha.
