“She can be too much,” he admits to New Idea.
Despite Fatima’s unwelcome attitudes, Seyat does understand where his mother’s behaviour comes from.
“I think she’s like that because of the way she grew up,” he says of his mum.
“I think she has that kind of mindset.”
But are these mothers really that bad or will they come around and accept their children’s partners?
BRIDE & PREJUDICE AIRS MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, AT 7.30PM.
