You know, by the time you get to be in you fifties to seventies, most everyone has a lifetime of history, your fiance is no different. It makes him who he is today, which is someone you presumably love. And it’s not fair or realistic to expect him never to mention that history or share photographs from prior times in his life, even if his ex in them. Frankly, this is something you should’ve learned decades ago. You’re too old for this kind of drama. I would encourage you to seek therapy individually to sort out your issues with your mom and also perhaps couples therapy to sort out your issues with your fiancé. Your mom isn’t the only controlling person in this equation and you may have picked up some bad relationship habits from her.
