The drunk boyfriend is there 24x7 and has complete control of the situation.
Him showing up on Thanksgiving only means the BF has to wait until he leaves to start being an asshole again.
Not showing up tells his mother loud and clear that he doesn't approve.
This isn't about the BF, this is about his mother.
