How do handle when your husband does not like your mother

Today I have come to the realization that my husband does not like my mother. I never wanted that and it breaks my heart. I know how much she cares for him and it seems that shuts down when she comes around . I am caught in the middle and I listen to her saying that she wishes he liked her. My response is mommie he does but I'm convinced that she correct when I see him around her. Should I accept it? I find myself in tears because if this. I'm torn

As long as he's respectful I don't really see the issue. He's probably never going to have the same kind of relationship with her that you have. I'm a shy person and most people think I don't like them when that's not the case at all. I'd just let him straighten out his own feelings without butting in. As long as he's nice that is.

As long as he does not disrespect her I dont see the problem. He does not have to like her and she dont have to like him. Maybe he sees something in her that you dont see.

Me and my fiancee just broke because of my mom. They both dont like each other and because I was so busy trying to fix it, I did not see what he saw until it was too late. My mother is a bitter person and misery loves company. Since she cant be happy i shouldnt be either.
