Parents don’t like grown son’s girlfriend

From elsewhere in The Post: A recent college graduate moved in with his parents, but a rocky relationship with his girlfriend makes it hard to live at home. A sudden engagement followed by cancelled wedding plans has left his father cold to the relationship.

What do I do?” writes the son’s mother in a letter to advice columnist Marguerite Kelly.

Kelly tells this mom why it’s best to stay out of her son’s love life.
