DEAR AUNTIE ABENA,
Good afternoon. Thanks to you and your lovely people. I’m 27 and a beautician who owns my own shop. My problem is I’m married to a mommy’s boy. When my husband first introduced me to his mother, I didn’t like her facial expression. I asked him to tell me the truth if the mom is not ok with me so I can go my way.
Anytime I raised that topic he will tell me not to worry. That he’s the one getting married to me and not his mother. Yoo hmm. I wasn’t ok with it but since he said I should forget it, I agreed and we got married.
Before we got married, his mom called me and said since her son insists on marrying me she has nothing to say but I shouldn’t come and disturb her. That is all she can tell me and she hung up on me. I keep asking myself, disturb her how? I have three sisters in-law, my husband is the only boy they have.
Auntie Abena, my mom in-law doesn’t like me one bit. I do all I can but still she’s not ok. Hmmm at first my husband didn’t like going to church but now he goes to church with me and prays with me at home. I’m very prayerful.
Any time we go for prayers at my church and my mom in-law calls, she will be angry and say that she doesn’t like all these prayer churches and small small pastors. Eei. She wants to know everything that is going on in our marriage and my husband listens to his mother all the time. I’m wondering if I’m safe.
Do u think our marriage will last because I pray a lot too but the way his mother doesn’t like me and he listens to her more I’m scared. He tells his mom everything and because of that I’m scared our marriage won’t last. I don’t know what to do.
