The basic premise deals with four women who try to woo the man and hope to be him with him as well as be accepted by his mother. It takes weird turns because, let’s face it, the plot itself is weird. Today our sole purpose behind writing this piece is to let people know if Shekeb and Emily are still together. Read on to know what happened between the couple as the show wrapped up.

Shekeb And Emily: How It Began On I Love a Mama’s Boy

Shakeb and Emily met three years actually before the I Love a Mama’s Boy television series aired, and they had immediately fallen in love with each other. But of course, Shakeb’s mother, an overbearing woman, was also in the picture, and therefore Emily faced many challenges in becoming the only lady in his man’s life and sincerely worked towards Shekeb’s mother’s acceptance as well.

So anyway, the series progressed, and Emily and Shekeb’s popularity began growing. Since the couple had been dating for three years now, Shekeb hoped that he and Emily would move in together – a sentiment that Emily shared as well. The only problem was just Laila, who stopped them from being together. Their plan was to move together in the series, as the audiences saw, but it was foiled by Laila, who sort of disliked Emily from the very beginning. Nonetheless, Shekeb and Emily were close for many years now, the problem was the race factor came in.

Emily and Shekeb Hindrance: Laila’s Problem

Laila didn’t dislike Emily for any other reason but because she was Korean by descent. She couldn’t wrap her head around the fact that her son could and had already been with someone who came from South Korea. According to her, it was a big no no, and everyone in their family would frown knowing their son had fallen in love with a Korean lady. Emily, for one could not wrap her head around such racist generalization, but eventually, she decided to woo her heart and stuck around. But Laila became more furious by the day, and that drastically affected her son’s relationship. So that was the first obstacle that kept them apart. Next, Laila clearly pronounced her decisions. She forced Shekeb to call off their relationship, much less let him move in with Emily and get married to her in the future.
