He's too attached to his mum: expert opinion

 

Julia feels like she's deprived of part of her relationship with her partner, the part that Alex's mum has taken over. She does everything for the pair of them so what's left for Julia?

The bar is set high so it's possible that Julia is also fearful of not reaching the same standards.

She sees signs of immaturity in Alex's behavior, which she finds difficult to explain as he acts like an adult in all other areas of his life.
