Hey, I need help. I have had some awful relationships in the past and some bad things have happened to me, however I have come through them and now I have a partner of 2 and a half years and we just got engaged. I have a problem though, we have decided to tell our parents at christmas but I am 20 and although we are not getting married until 2009, I am worried about telling my mum. She was married when she was 20 and has been married three times since. She has always been very controlling and at times she can be quite nasty with it, I feel that when she finds out she will disapprove and get very nasty towards me. I am currently at University and completing my Year Abroad, which means that a lot of my possessions are still at her house and I fear that she may throw them out or something similar. I just dont know how to bring it up, I am quite scared of her and I just dont know what to say. I know this problem seems stupid compared to some of the others on here but it is really bothering me and I need help.
