The OP's mother instructed him to allow their guest to play on his PS5, but he refused, and they argued:
He texted his fiancée about the fight but mistakenly sent it to his mother, and she stopped talking to him:
A Redditor told him to hide PS5 and go out with his fiancée
Or he could say it's broken
It's an expensive toy to be given to some random kids to play with
It's not the OP's responsibility to entertain kids
The OP's mom needs a babysitter for an occasion
He should put a passcode on
A Redditor was curious and asked the OP some questions
But another Redditor said that everything is irrelevant since the OP doesn't want to give his PS5
Respecting personal boundaries is a must for a healthy relationship, regardless of age or relationship dynamics. While parents often have the best intentions, they need to acknowledge their adult children's autonomy and decision-making capacities.
The OP's PS5 is a personal belonging, and he has every right to decide who can use it. Past experiences of finding unfamiliar children using his belongings reinforce his concern.
Although living under the parental roof can blur lines, respecting each other's boundaries shouldn't be questioned. So, Redditors agreed with the OP that he is not in the wrong in this situation.
