So about three years ago I went on a date with my best friend Kenzie, her boyfriend Brett and his best friend Derek. It was a blind double date, between Derek and I. He and I have hit it off we were friends for a little less than a year before we began dating. I am almost eighteen I have less than a week and he turns twenty in December. We have now been together for over two years. For our two year anniversary we were going to get promise rings because we felt it was a good step in our relationship. Needless to say, my mother has intervened and will not let me order his promise ring. Does my mother have this right? Also she will not allow us to kiss, cuddle or even hold hands in her presence. Should I continue to let my mom have this control in Derek and I's relationship?
