    1. Ao true. Me i always have problems with my inlaws,thats why i hardly travel to visit. Urobho people una try. Imagine expecting the wife,to cook and serve them,and they would still be detecting for you. Annoying much.

    2. This is me ooo.....I always find an excuse to spend more time with my parents when I visit home. Abeg no time for unnecessary wahala with those that don't and will never accept you as family. My in-laws are the worst and I can truly now write a lesson 101 on what to look out for in your in-laws before you marry. Namsense!!!!!

    4. The funny thing is that these acts are done by fellow women, so who do we blame than ourselves. The daughter in law complaining today about mistreatment from her in-laws will mete out worse to her furure daughter in law. Until we stop the cycle nothing can be done.

    5. I beg to differ. Last year when I went back I didn't want to go home because I was treated like a queen at my inlaws. We the wives dont do anything at all except take care of our children

    6. @ Anonymous24 January 2020 at 11:50 my sister no be small detestation. When my urohbor mother Inlaw supposedly came to my house for omugwo she acted as if na she born the baby all she did was sit and watch TV never helped me till she left, refused to cook with the excuse that in their culture another woman no dey enter another woman kitchen, meanwhile anytime I go to ugheli na me dey cook and clean. I had to stop all the Christmas visits because na slavery I dey go do every Christmas.

    1. The first time my motherin-law and 3 of my sister in-laws visited me, I taught I was in for the slaving because the 3 ladies are my husband's elder sisters by far.
      I was shocked! I never saw anything like that all my years in igbo land. That my sister in-laws cooked, cleaned, scrubbed, washed and would ask me what quantity and how I want the food cooked! These are very successful women o with grown children. I married an Edo man and the kind of treatment I get with my in-laws...I can almost say is impossible in igbo land where I come from.
      I have aunts that take their time to visit my grandmother just to humiliate their brother's wife and turn her to a rag. Any little thing the eldest aunt will decree the poor brothers wife must kneel down to beg her with a live chicken. She turn herself to Amadioha.

      This patriarchy thing is worse off in the east.

  6. Hmmmmmm it is well with women. Women to be treated well lies with the husband. It is what you call your wife or treat her, that is what the in-laws will take.

    If you call your wife a goat, in-laws will call her goatee. .

If u see how hubby screamed at them and stormed out enh, that was the last time they tried it. Wicked set of Igbo people. Suwah.

  7. I read this yesterday.its just so on point.what most of this our in laws expect from us is really overwhelming.
    When i was dating my husband,i made sure whenever we go to his fathers house i didnt do anything,all those unneccessary eye service,i acted like a guest that i am and when its time to leave i carry my bag,dust am dey go..ill not come and allow them use me anyhow even b4 they marry me put for house.This attitude is common amongst we the yorubas.
    My prayer is to be a good inlaw to my kids spouse

    1. So did I. I never did eye service before marriage.It is the desperate women who do these. They believethe mans family will pitch in and encourage the man to marry her as per wife material

      Delete
    2. You're so right. I did not do eye service too and my husband warned me not to as well. There's nothing like marrying someone who cares about you just the way you care about them. My Mother-In law and my sisters in law at a point ganged up against me for just no cause but God bless my late Father in law (May God bless his soul). He stood up for me just the way my dad would have and that changed them till date. I am Igbo married to Yoruba.

    4. Thot it was only me. I heard the advice “start as u want to finish” meaning don’t start doing eye service then vex later, so I never did eye service. They abused me but at least they sai I’ve always been like that. Na dem sabi

  8. I think it depends on the family you are married into.
    Some in-laws are not nice, they expect you to be a slave to your husband and them. After all,they paid your bride price so “they own you”
    Till date, some babes stil say they would prefer to marry a man whose mother is no more...fear of being mistreated.
    A lot of women do this and it’s not right. You are your husbands queen, nobody harassed you but you won’t let your own son’s wife be.
    As a man, you should be very protective of your wife.

    1. It depends on the family. My mother in-law treats me like a queen to the extent that I find it embarrassing. I will be in the sitting and gist with my father in law while my mother in law runs around trying to make me feel comfortable. I've been married to her son for 6years without a child and it breaks my heart to see how nice they are to me.

    2. And the ladies that wish their mother's inoaw are no more, hope they understand they should be no more when their sons start marrying?

    3. Exactly if the man respects his wife no way his family will disrespect her..

  9. The only time I visited my in laws to be was the day I was disqualified from marrying their son and brother. They complained that I cross my legs too much so. Instead of me to go join the others and helps in the kitchen I was watching black and white TV with them. And I was truly in love with the guy o. This guy just walked away. He just disappeared without a word. But in as much as I had a good home training I was not brought up to lick **s.
    By the time he received sense, I was already sitting comfortably on a long thing from a correct family.

    3. Imagine! The family wouldn't have been your probing. The smallness of the guy would have broken you. So you come into a household for the first time and head straight for the heart-room of the family which is the kitchen. One day they will admit a witch in their kitchen without taking their time to get familiar first.

  11. The respect a man gives to his wife in the presence of his family members determine the respect they give to her/how they treat her..

    If you as a man is a push over;they will do anything they like too..But when they know you won't tolerate any nonsense;they will think twice before they act..

    If you treat your wife as a jewel;your extended would only murmur at your back..

    Wisdom however is knowing What to do and when to do it without being reminded..

  13. Some in-laws use every opportunity to oppress their wives.

    If you have been cleaning your house yourself or maybe you have helps, if you have been clearing the table yourself, wash the dishes after eating and even cook the food you eat, what stops you from doing the same thing whenever you have a visitor, be them your wives, husbands or relatives?!

    Many young women are worse than their mothers. They don't only use their wives as slaves, they also stylishly (some even use force) to collect money, material things from their wives.

    Abeg e, e dey wicked people body.

  14. It's funny how this plays out. Everything written there is true. But there are exceptions,maybe in a very few African families.

    But, someone like me, I keep the same energy everywhere I go. If I don't have the strength to do anything, we all sit and gist as I never get tired of gisting and if food is the problem, I can order food. Na when I get strength to cook or run any errand I dey do so. No time to for pretence No bullshit. If I happen to have a lot of money tomorrow all these wouldn't be any problems. I go hire people to do all.

  15. This is so true, the expectations from wives is too high, but sometimes depends on the husband, when I married my husband we once visited his elder sis and she called me to come and wash plates for other guests coming, I did it with joy but the attitude my husband's displayed that day sweet me o, after i returned to the living room he asked what I was called for I told him, immediately he shouted that so if I did not come with my wife your guests will not eat abi, I just did eye service that no baby stop it's normal he kept saying it's not normal I was Happy, another visit to this same sis inlaw she said I should enter kitchen and make the semo my husband will eat meanwhile na lie na the whole house semo I prepared. What broke the camels back was when I had misunderstanding with my husband, he got angry and said I should leave his house, I called this sis inlaw, she immediately said eeehn I am too secretive I don't call to tell her things about but now am calling her, please if the marriage will not work you people should separate abeg. Uhmmmn, well I later settled with my husband he stopped is from visiting her that she's a bad sister , that how could she tell me to leave him blablabla. That was how God settled us separately . So no more visit that I 'll be uncomfortable. And whenever I visit my family with hubby. We both don't work at all. I am happy I have peace from sis inlaw. But I still like her sha though from afar.

  17. Nonsense
    Making a mountain out of a mole hill
    How many of us ladies even know how to cook?
    Hasn't social media taken all the attention.
    If you go to your in-laws or your parent's house and you
    are staying for days with your kids, why not go to the
    kitchen and help out. At least prepare what your kids will eat?
    If the food is too peppery or the kid's ration isn't what you usually
    give them, the same woman will complain that she and her kids were "badly treated".
    Please stop this rants, there is not War in Nigeria between women and men, it only
    exist in the heads of the depraved "feminists of the Nigerian contraption". it is only
    evil, exaggerated evil that Nigerian ladies copy from Americans. Visit any American
    family and see that everybody will be in the backyard doing barbecue party, roasting and
    eating what you joined to make and chatting. That is the joy of human association.
    Wait for people to cook and serve you -queen with no kingdom.πŸ˜•πŸ˜•πŸ˜•πŸ˜•πŸ˜•πŸ˜•

      Someone I know here has been out of her home for like 3 months. Just cos she asked her husband for school fees for their kids. She’s presently with her older sister and i keep encouraging her to hold on that everything will be fine. Since she’s been here, her husband hasn’t called her once. Even when heir son was sick around new year, he didn’t call. Her mum in-law is very happy the way things are. It’s well.

  18. This one is close to home..... my laws dont like me for reasons best known to them. I was initially troubled by this because sincerely, I know am not a bad person but definitely not perfect. So we all travel every xmas to spend time with my parents inlaw. It is usually a terrible time, the fellow co wives & myself do a countdown of when we will return to our base. My MIL & SIL's would make sure we work like slaves & make the house really uncomfortable for us. They will stay in their corner accessing & gossiping about everyone & everything. I have not gone with them in the last 3 years because I usual come back home angry & emotionally drained. Last xmas none of the wives went, it was as if we all planned it. I always encourage my husband to go though because they are his family & wouldn't want to come between them. My family treat my husband like gold, my siblings will travel and buy stuffs for my husband and sometimes wouldn't get anything for me..... my hand is paining me already!

      Let alone in Naija where labour is cheap. You expect me to work Monday to Friday, then spend my whole weekend cooking and cleaning. And even if I don't work Mondays to Fridays, I don't have to kill myself in the kitchen.

      Even my parents, we got someone to do all that work.

      I cook, I clean but I do it at my own pace, no pressure, not out to please anyone or make any one like me. You don't have to like me, let us just respect and be civil to each other.

      The last time I woke up at 4am must have been when I was in school, ooops also when I was nursing. Me wake up at 4am?? Lmao.

  21. No doubts I know most in-laws are very callous towards their daughter's in-law, and these is so bad. I & my husband visit his parents every now & then, and I can boldly say am blessed with very wonderful in-laws. I personally feel it's a two way thing, if your treated with love and respect please accord the same treatment to them. Most ladies go into marriage with very bad mindsets, expecting to be treated wrongly,& if they get an opposite reaction, they tend to believe it's all fake and go ahead to be hostile to their in-laws.

    3. It is common with local yoruba families. Pls try and get out of there as soon as possible. I am guessing you must be low on funds for you to be tolerating such. This is the time you need rest. Where is your husband?

      I am what you will call ajebo "unfortunately" married to a local yoruba family. My husband was the only one that went to school amongst his siblings. We met when he did his MBA.

      His background moulded him to be this disciplined hardworking hustler. Which made him rich unfortunately same can't be said for his family, they are all leeches.

      Initially, I tried to be nice. Always smiling. He had this sister that expected me to cook and bring to her Pako shop everyday. I did it once in a while and she always complained about my food to hubby. Hubby always shut her up but never tells me. I overheard one day.

      When I was a new bride, any event his sisters invite me to, I go. There is this particular one who calls the others and gossips about me, saying I am spoilt, that money is all I have bla bla bla.

      I have changed it for them. I am no longer the naive bride and I ignore them. When they come to beg my hubby for money, I always encourage him to give them more. He has given them money to set up businesses but they have decided to be useless.

      If only they know what they would have benefited from me had they been humane towards me.

  27. Fear sister in-laws they are the worst when it comes to being wicked and I have them aplenty😱😱they so much live eye service whenever hubby is around swarming around me like mother hen because of what they can get,I stopped visiting them a long time ago to regain my sanity because once you are with them you do practically everything for them which doesn't stop them talking behind your back.Thank God I hardly visits them nor call sef,if you call I return but visiting is out of the question now and when they come visiting they want to eat the house down but now if they like let them bang my gate morning till night I won't open if I am not in the mood,if woman tay for house,she go turn witchπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.My brother wife always comes with her househelp because she knows I won't allow her to enter my kitchen so she brings the househelp to pack and wash plates for her when she finish eating while I cook and take care of my niece😘she sleeps all day,watch tv and we gist till she goes back to her house,I hardly ever visit them and the others too as I maintain my lane to avoid being disrespected

    1. Sisters in laws are the worst. My own all claim to be spirit filled tongue talking prophetesses, yet the gossip more than anything

  28. This is true. I dont like spending time with my in laws because we stay in the family house that is not comfortable. Kitchen is outside, fetching water from gallons to cook, more than 10children around so everywhere is always untidy etc. Its uncomfortable for me because I did not grow up in such setting. This Christmas, I stayed behind till after new year with my daughter before travelling down to meet my husband in the village. I spent 6days and shared it between my parents house and inlaw place. My mum inlaw is very nice though, she doesn't have any issues it's just the environment that stresses me out.

  29. This topic! That was how my husband had d audacity to tell me to go clean her sister's room. I have an infant I'm struggling with and all the stress.
    The kind of eyeing I gave him Dat day, he will never forget it.
    That's not work for me compared to what I do daily. But for ur sis to sit down. And gist all day doing nothing? U are mad! I think d devil used his brain to drink palmwine Dat day.
    Upon her arrival, I made sure d room and toilet was clean and I even changed d sheets. So I should continue cleaning after her everyday because u want them to see me as a good wife... Ikwkwakwkwa. He actually ran out of d house day day because he knew that for me not to say anything, it's more disastrous.
    No body can turn me to a slave bkos I got married oo. That why u see most married women lookin so stressed out bkos of house chores and inlaws stress.
    On a normal day I can joyfully clean her room, but not u telling me like I'm ur house help. And to think I've washed clothes cooked and cleaned other parts of d house Dat same day all by my self? I was livid!
    Anyways na how person put imm self dem dey use am. If u put ur sef down na u go drag goat go church for village Thanksgiving... Shior

  30. you all took the first and middle sentence from Martins forgetting the last sentence where he wrote: Wisdom however is knowing What to do and when to do it without being reminded.....Martins thank you so much for this statement. if they are in the kitchen join them, if they are cleaning take your own part and clean.Are you not going to eat the same food or sleep in the house with them? imagine..... some women saying trash here and you want your sister in law to come back with brother and whereas you can't go with your own hubby to visit his family all in the name of not wanting to do the cooking and the rest.. what is there to cook or do just for a two week or one week holiday? Visit them and still go and visit your own family. lazy youths..

    1. Shut up joor...

      What is there not to do? Some of these women are already stressed out with their daily life issues, juggling work, motherhood and tending to their husbands.

      I don't see anyone here saying they don't want to lift a finger. The complaint is being made to do all the chores and cooking.

      Why can't it be a short holiday for the wives to rest and be pampered? Is that a taboo?

      Biko, enter house go sleep madam wisdom.

    2. So if she is stressed out,the people you are expecting to do the chores aren't ba? Let's respect ourselves. Contribute the quota can and leave the rest. Everybody suddenly turning to posh wife. I just tire

  31. I can relate. Anytime I visit my inlaw, I overwork myself. As early as 5a.m MIL is waking me up to do chores. They wanted me to stay an extra week when hubby was going back to base, but I lied I had an urgent meeting and can't stay. I ran.

    1. Tenth I had to lie o. FIL was like I should stay longer so that I can be cooking delicious meal for them. Visitors will come, FIL will say I should leave all what I'm doing and prepare food for the 'community'
      Story long o. Now I just do me. They hate me because I'm not a push over. I act frail but very strong. They don tire for my matter.

  33. If I start to talk,hmmmmmm!
    My husband's senior brothers wife (co wife) fought me last December after using me like a maid because her daughter,my husband's niece dey do introduction,I worked like a maid! We travelled down to their place for the party,I have not even rested,no what are u going to eat,no water. I worked and worked even to the extent of picking bottles,nylon of pure water,leaves of pounded yam on the floor. The stupid iyale (co wife) even had the audacity to tell me to give her neighbours left over stick of vegetables oooo when she has her own small children she can send. After all said and done,the following day,we were to go back,she started shouting that I can't cook for her family! She has two young daughters and two young sons that are useless and can't do house chores but wait i g for me to cook after the stress I passed through that day for her entitled daughters introduction. She said I shld never step into their house again,on too I didn't ask her what I will cook. Sincerely,we don't do this in our own family,so I am experiencing this first hand. She sha later apologized because I never said a word all through her accusations. I have decided to go to her daughter's wedding coming up this year but will never sleep over,I will go that day and come back that day, some in-laws are from pit of hell

    3. What annoyed me is you said your husband's elder brother's wife??? sending you errands how? Even if she is older than you, you don't owe her shit. Both of you are co-wives.

      Never ever subject yourself to such ridicule. Do the bit you can and leave the rest.

      No dey put face down like that next time, does she not have younger sisters or cousins? Hian.

  34. Poverty is a disease. Look at the financial situation of the future husband's family before you enter. I can't imagine the rich doing all this to their daughter in laws

    3. So true,na poor family that has never stepped out of their comfort zone dey do so. Poor people have inferiority complex and a sense of entitlement. Since they can't make it and are getting old and see the young couple living fine,they become jealous just like my poor,self entitled and low self esteem co wife.

    4. You're wrong, I wonder why people assume the rich are perfect, mund you the very rich ones would likely have helpers at home but that doesnt mean they are not observing your weaknesses and strength.

  35. My Husband would not even allow me even if i want to try it. I am a guest and should be treated as one. I don't do eye service. I do what i can especially during parties. My in-laws are Yoruba. My mother in-law is very nice, she doesn't allow me to work, my sister in-law even washes plates and sweep when she visits me with her children, though her children are a handful. They Mess up everywhere. It's my husband's step mum and her children that are entitled lots. I have put them in their place sincE.
