His mother was not satisfied and could not get full attenstiin of Mr.paul therefore she turned all his affection and love for his son.Paul also get attract to his mother.He falls in love with his mother.This love was sexually love.
Now whenever his mother trying to attecth with his father he gets jelious and whenever paul try to involves with another girls except his mother his mother get jelious .
