Yes exactly. Randolph metaphorically insults her mother and in such a way that it was clearly understood that the Son wasnt allowing Sophy to marry Sam.

in this story, son's veto refers the power of son over mother as he is highly educated and he gave this credit to his father. mother was not educated thats why he gave no importance to her as she was ill literate .. and whenever she had a wish to do something she asked her son and take permission from her son.
