Chronicle Of Blog Visitor Narrative..

Hmmmmmmmm......







STAND ALONE NARRATIVE
INTERFERING IN LAWS


Goodday Stella and Bvs, 

Please bear with my long post, I would try and get straight to it without missing any background points.


I got married barely 3 months ago (December 2019), I am no doubt married to the few good men left in the world. He is a truly God-fearing and loving man, we both put so much into making our relationship almost fight-less, so we had a smooth ride for 4 years that we were together before finally taking our vows. 

It was a nonsexual courtship.

We prayed hard for direction, for guidance and all we needed before we eventually settled. All seems to be good and our boat is smoothly sailing but at intervals his parents rock it with their interfering, meddling and overbearing attitude.


I would be lying if I say i didn't notice it before we took our vows but I always assumed my husband would take charge of the situation, but somehow (maybe because he doesn't want to dishonor/disobey his parents as God says) he always ends up just letting things go their way and hurting me in the process and it is always on the big, vital issues.


The first time was in our choice of a house (let me not bore you with the long details), but I wanted a 2/3-bedroom house option since we were about to get married(we hadn't introduced our families to each other nor had a wedding date at this point but we both knew it would happen soon), his mom suggested he starts with a one-bedroom apartment and he followed his mom not minding that we had already settled for getting a 2/3 bedroom option. It was one of our major issues, we argued it out and he apologised and we moved on...


The second was in our timing for a child, we both agreed to wait about 6 months or a year so we could bond and prepare ourselves in all aspects for such a huge responsibility. He told me his concerns about contraception especially the hormonal ones, I visited two gynaecologists to weigh my options, we seemed to be on the same page. Barely a week to our wedding, my husband made a 360 degree about this decision after his mother made him promise not to wait before having a child citing the instance of a cousin of his who did and seemed not to be getting a child now that they are ready. I wept that day, i told him this is the 2nd time this is happening.


The current one is about residence, my inlaws don't stay in the country but they have a house in the same city where I work, my parents also reside in this same city, my husband stays 3 hours away. After our wedding thanksgiving, we slept over in their house, my MIL gave me keys to the house and some rooms.


 I asked my husband if they were not hoping I'll stay in the house all alone when I resume at work after the honeymoon, he said they were most likely thinking it. 

We discussed the issue multiple times and we agreed that on the grounds of loneliness and need for privacy and self respect, I would stay at my parents' house during the week/working days and if it was a weekend he would be coming over (we wanted to be rotating weekend visits), we would stay over at their house. I reminded him of the 2 earlier instances where we seemed to have reached a conclusion and he made a turnaround at heating point. He said he wouldn't this time.


I resumed work 2 weeks ago now, and ever since his parents have been asking him when i will leave my parents house claiming they performed all the marital cultural rites and it was a shameful thing for them that i went back to my parents' house. Last night he said they called to ask him again, I asked what his response was, he said when it was elongating and becoming an argument, he told them I was going to rent an apartment, and then he asked "What do we do now?"


I am so angry! We have discussed these multiple times and reached a conclusion yet you are asking what do we do? Their only basis is culture! No one is thinking of my comfort, happiness and not returning to an empty house after work! Not that we can't afford an apartment but does it even make sense to do that?
Am I asking too much if i think my husband needs to tell them to stay off such aspects of our marriage?


I have always prayed to have a truly exemplary marriage and to be belong to (even if its a less than 1%) genuinely-happy marriage. Am i currently working against that on this issue?


Guys! Help!

  1. I had to reread to understand where you are coming from dear Poster. To me, it seems like you're not ready to compromise.
    Marriage is an all encompassing thing that involves both families. Your background is definitely different from his.
    This calls for patience and understanding. Whatever you're going through now is a non issue compared with what many others hi through in marriage.
    Try to be more understanding my dear and also see things from your husband's perspective too

    2. You are right, but I don't think the husband has to be going back on him and his wife agreement or private talks between couples, in which one way or the other, the husband mum is like the one making decisions indirectly for the couple.

    3. madam poster tell your husband to rent his place, leave your mother in law house. young marriage need privacy na. cant u guys rent??? na wa. when parents start telling their children wat to do in their marriage and, it end up bad like a fallen ship. oga stella, this one u are tagging her bad, hope that was how ur own mother in law dictated to ur husband all and how you guys live in your house. you are not being objective here ma, you are putting your own emotions to judge her. parents please allow young couples to make their mistakes and learn. your job is to advise and let them decide, not making the decisions for them. ladies run from mummy boy guys. jezz.

    4. Ha poster, your husband has failed you big time. Stella please during marriage classes the first test is the ability of the couple to agree on contraception, where to live and number of children, these questions are asked by the pastor and you must have agreed unanimously before you will be joined in matrimony. My dear, time to have shown your displeasure with his backpedalling was over the issue of contraception where you should have called his bluff.
      It's too late to cry over spilled milk but the advice above was for intending married couples.
      1. Talk to your husband, a heartfelt 5mins discussion where you tell him how his actions hurt you. 2. Pray before you do that. 3.do not be afraid to speak for yourself, in clear but respectful manner 4. It appears you don't live with your husband, look for a way to spend more time together where you simply just pamper him, he'll start to speak your language with time. Good luck and shine your eyes.

    5. All you people talking don't no what you are saying. That man is not a man yet and not ready to marry. Why will you take a decision with your wife,and later change on what mama wants. Please he should stand his ground on issues and his mama would respect his decision. Poster marriage his compromise but not on yeye issue.

    6. Anon 15:37 thank you O, I was shocked at Stella's response so if the family wants to maltreat her she should bring her head down and be maltreated cos it looks as if the husband won't be able to defend her before his folks.

      Madam calm down and discuss again with your husband, tell him he isn't helping matter and explain how hurt you get when he does things like this, dont be rude or insultive, try to handle things in the best way possible. Rent your apartment biko

    7. Stella, your response sometimes na wa. How is she trying to separate son from parents?

    8. @ poster, I sort of understand your annoyance. If you and your husband agree on an issue, you expect him to stick with that decision. If he disagrees with you, he should raise it with you there and then rather than bowing to pressure from his parents and aligning to whatever they say.

      If you guys agreed on a 2 bedroom, why go for a one bed room apartment though? I really don't understand. What about when baby comes and all?

      In any event, when issues like this happen, there are times you should compromise and let his parents have their way. Just say yeah that makes sense, no worries Other times, insist on you guys doing it the way you agreed.

      Whilst you at it, do not insult him, his parents or call him a mummy's boy but make sure you insist on whatever you agreed.

      So what I am saying is learn to ignore some for peace sake and stand your ground on others.

      Know when to be soft, calm patient, to ignore and to be rigid and assertive. With wisdom and prayers, you guys will be fine.

  2. Ahhh my dear you need wisdom oooo.. Your marriage is too young for you to give room to unnecessary petty drama that could escalate any moment.

    Me I think it's wrong for you to go back to your parents house for whatsoever reason you think is good enough.. it's somehow abeg.

    The last thing you want is to be against his family, the minute it dawns on him that you're trying to pull him away from his family wahala go start. it's yet to dawn on him but your constant nagging could make it clearer for him to see.
    You need wisdom. Pray for it my dear. Goodluck.

    1. She is not intending to pull him away from his family. She expects him to be a man and take decisions for his family rather than his parents doing that.

      Delete
    2. Being a man means doing what she wants whether it's logical it not, right? She wants to be left to do what ever she likes even though most of it doesn't make sense. Her parents too indulges her. Why let her come home after being married. So if her husband travels she can't be the only one in their house till he gets back. And it is not as if the man won't come on every weekend.

      Delete
    3. If it didn't make sense then why did the man agree to it. You guys are missing the point. It is not even about what they agreed on but the fact that after agreeing he changes it because his parents want it done another way.

      Delete
    4. Stella love, I think your advice is extremely biased here cos you are a mother of boy children too. Please read again. She didn't attempt to pull them apart. She has a life, capable of decision making and has a right to have agreements with her husband too and should in-laws take that away from her? What she wrote there, she is only concerned about interference that has to do with her; where she lives and when she decides to carry a baby in her body! She is very reasonable in my opinion.

      Poster, please tell them you have heard. Say it very subtly like you are about to cry then move a few of your things to the house and go back staying with your parents as it suits you. Drag your feet till they mind their business.

    5. 17:10 because he is a yes man who doesn't have a mind of his own. She comes he agrees then another person comes he agrees. He never came forth with all the ideas, she did and he conformed and agreed after she laid it on the table. You can tell it wasn't his plan from the start. In the marriage the man doesn't have an opinion of his own and even outside the marriage. He just agrees to everything. He is a people pleaser.

  3. Staying in your parent's house after marriage is a big NO.I don't see anything wrong in you staying in your in-laws house after all they are not living there.... Or better still go and rent an apartment. Don't bring an issue where there's none.

    1. I totally understand where your inlaws are coming from, especially on the child bearing ish... Most of my friends that said they will take their time before having kids, actually had a problem conceiving when they were ready to have kids. I really don't like when people say they are waiting and even go as far as taking measures. (but thats just me.)
      I think you should really be considerate when it comes to some issues, most people have a problem with their brides still staying with their families especially now you have your own "family" house in the same town.
      You sound a bit selfish and want everything that concern you to be done your own way.
      Marriage is about compromise. If you however do not like certain things and your hubby is being difficult... Pick up the phone and explain things to your inlaws yourself, maybe they will understand it better. So stand up for yourself if you think he doesnt stand up for you, cus believe me, that will not change anytime soon.

    2. @PUSH she is very controlling and self centered.

      Delete
    3. How is she controlling and self centered??? She said they made the decision TOGETHER! Not like she imposed it on him na. If he had refused from the onset then it would be different..

      Stella she's not trying the separate her husband from his family please. Two has become one after all. He should stick to decisions they make together, not changing his stand once his mummy says it's not ok. She also has her own family, how would her husband feel when she changes their decisions cos her family says so?

      Babe, for peace to reign, get an apartment. I think it's a little too early to be on your in-laws bad book. Keep talking to your hubby on the need to be a man, with time he'll probably change.

    4. Conception is an issue for the couple to agree on not third parties. It is their decision and marriage is a union of two people not three or four. It is not a matter of the lady trying to pull the guy away, the lady too is someone’s daughter and her parents are not interfering in their business, so why should the in-laws? Parents on both sides should keep out of the couple’s business and provide advice and guidance sparingly.

      Delete
    5. 18:53 her parent interfered the meant they allowed her come back to their house as a married woman. Due To that disrespectful indulgent behaviour on their part I am sure she tells them everything too and they also tell her what to do. You don't expect her to say everything here.

      Delete
  4. Stella you are misinterpreting this. Parental interference has ruined lots of marriage. Jeez! They both agreed not to have a child for a while, how can they interfere in that basic decision between a couple?!! I am livid. They should let their son be a MAN! A husband!
    Poster take a deep breath, try talking to your husband about how important it is for decisions you both made to be binding. May God see you both through.

    3. Obviously the man was not interested in the wife's plan to wait till after six months so he told his parent and keeps using them as an excuse. She should learn from his and listen to her husband's opinion too and not what she wants alone. Everything is her idea not the husband that is why he is not interested.

      Delete
    4. The husband is the one reporting everything to his family now. She too should keep shut about some things. You can see the type of man you married. So watch what you tell him and the interference will be less. I know it hurts but thats just it.

      I married an over obedient son too, (though he stands up for me most of the time) other times when he is trying to sit on the fence, i relay my decisions directly, explaining to them which they totally understand and let me do me.

    6. Very immature mama's boy. Poster it will be a difficult marriage if he continues this way. His parents are obviously financially capable and may be still control or have direct connection with his source of income. It will be him declaring war by going against their 'suggestions'. I advice you approach it wisely and prayerfully. As for staying with your parents after marriage, it is not advisable. We make many sacrifices in marriage and I thinking having to live alone in their house will be the wise compromise if you and hubby are not willing to spend money in renting.
      Addressing his inability to make decisions that concern both of you and stick by it should be addressed.

  5. I honestly don't think she is trying to separate the husband from his parents. I just think she wants a level of privacy with her husband and less interference from the husband's parents.
    As a man not every discussion he has with his wife should be disclosed to his parents. I also think that the wife and husband should sit down and talk properly about issues between them. The man should be a man and stop saying everything he and his wife discusses to his parents it causes conflict.

      He is not only a mommy's boy but also a toy boy. He listens to everything she says without thinking twice. I am sure it's this lady that makes all the decision in their marriage. Read again on how she keeps saying I WANT I WANT. What about what the man want? All the three instances were created by her not the husband. Everything was her idea and you can tell she always had her way in their relationship It's The marriage that is making her ways obvious now. I am sure the way he behaves with the parent by listening to her was the way he behaved with her during their four years relationship. The man Is pulled in all areas from his wives angle to the parent. What about his own opinion does the wife care, does the parent care too? The man is the one in the middle of all of this.😬

    5. Anon 15:39, Exactly! I am 100% with you on this. The husband has failed his wife big time. How can a couple reach an agreement on 3 major issues and he turns around to change them after discussing with his family. He has a family now and this should come before the family he was born into. He should man up. In cases like these he should tell his parents that "we've decided to go this route for now, if it doesn't work out for us we would make changes". I agree with those who say the poster should calm down, but she isn't doing anything wrong. The man is the issue, but she has to live the situation as she saw the signs and still went ahead with the marriage. Since the marriage is very important to her then she should do what she can to make it work.
      PS, I am a guy. Nothing ticks me off more that people reneging on a mutual agreement.

It is not about the plans they made being changed by his parents... it is about whether the plans even made sense. The advice given by her in laws are justifiable and mustn't be pushed aside simply because she is the wife and her own plans must stand even though all her plans are childish.

      If the advice the parent gave were meaningless then we would agree with her but as it is they only advised them from a place of love and the husband realised they had a point and he followed it. You all should stop saying he failed her simply because she is the wife biko even though all the plans she started were not really good. Decisions can always be changed when a more reasonable one comes along. His saw that his parent advice were reasonable than her own and he took it.

  9. Your inlaws are right. You are married, you should not be staying with your parents. It's not as if you are pregnant or something, so I don't get why you are staying at your parent's. Loneliness? Didn't you prepare for that?
    What if your parents were staying in a different city?
    You never ready to settle as wife o.
    You know already how your husband is....listens to his parents all the damn time.
    Were you expecting him to change all of a sudden? You knew what you were getting into, so find a way around it.
    Obviously, your husband has a very strong bond with his parents.
    If you do not handle this matter with maturity, you will end up ruining your marriage.

  11. Stella sometimes I don’t even understand you and your comments, a lot of people look up to you, so when you’re giving advice, do it objectively and devoid of sentiments.

    You’re a kind of mother who will meddle in the affairs of your children, for the love of God, his parents have lived their lives and made the newly weds live their lives too. What business does his mum have on the time they will start conceiving.
    Why are you blaming the woman and calling her names? I do hope you don’t raise your sons to be like this.

    Madam poster I suggest you have a heart to heart y’all with your husband. The same bible that said children should honor their parents also said a man will leave his mother and father and cling to his wife and the two shall become one, talk to your husband and let him know he’s hurting you, your happiness matters too in your marriage and your husband needs to step up!

A correct man would have shut her down the moment she said she wanted to go and live with her parent but he obliged her even though he knows that doesn't Make sense. If the parent were in the house she would have said they are choking her but now there are not in the house she is still nagging. I am sure the parent knows the kind of weakling they have as a son that's why they are opening his eyes to her silliness. Renting a 3 bedroom where none of them would stay but comes to once in awhile during the weekend, isn't that a waste of money? Very childish wife.

      So my in laws will now be taking decision for me in my marriage?

      I don't understand

    12. When they see your decision doesn't make sense they can advise you. Being newly Married doesn't automatically make you wise and immune to reason on every sides simply because it is coming from where you don't want.

    13. Nothing wrong in controlling her husband as long as it pertains to issues within them.

      The parents should not meddle in their affairs. Decisions like where she will stay and pregnancy should be between the couple. I would sort of understand if it is about a year or 2 and they want to find out what their plans are as per having kids.

      But for now, let them be. I control my husband and he controls me. Issues that concerns his family I don't interfere, I know my boundaries. But issues about my home is decided by us, no third party.

    14. Anon 16.51 u are wrong. If the husband does not like the plans. D moment you and your wife is discussing it. Be open! Tell her your mind. Let that communication flow and agree on one tin. Not agreeing and ur parent will later be the one to give approval. In fact how did his parents know about all this. In another way. The parents might not actually be the one. The poster husband might be too childish to agree to her point there by using his parents as cover face. Becos how did his parents know about all these bed room talk plans btw both of them. Maybe after discussing! Oga will go back and telling his mom and tell her all of it den she self go advise
      This your husband need to man up. He is a mummy's boy period.

    18. Women are really women’s enemies! Marriage is a union of two people and parents should learn to stay out of couple’s business. I have a brother that is an only son and my mum has never interfered in his business not even for once! She would only give neutral advice to the couple and not descend into the arena. What happens between a man and a woman in the privacy of their home is not anybody’s business. Anyways, I don’t blame the parent, the man in this story seems to be loose-mouthed.

      Delete
    19. @17:34...and being an in law or an elderly person doesn’t automatically make one wise. That mother in law should face her own husband, and home, and leave these two alone. That boy had no business getting married. If it wrong for her to live in her own parents house, then it worse living in her in laws house. Getting married doesn’t mean a woman has been bought. She has rights, just like her husband.

      Looks like the both of them are not ready for marriage.

      In my opinon, there is no reason why you should return to your parents house, just 3mths after marriage, that's not right.
      Move to your (new) family house, and get a house help or a relative of your choice to ease boredom/loneliness, or you resign and go back to your matrimonial home, or your husband should resign and move to your current city. This marriage is too young for you to live apart, don't play with your marriage.
      As for baby making, the choice is yours, and the body is yours too, anyone can say whatever, just nod and go with the plan that makes you happy, you are an adult... you can fix yourself.

      My marriage is also 3mths old, and my husband works away from home but i will never think of returning to my parents.

      This marriage is yours now, go abead and build it your way.

      Delete
    5. 16:58 with your reasoning I bet you are still very young hence lack maturity. When you marry into a family, you must learn to live a balance life with them.

      The poster's inlaws do not live in the same house they want her to move to. She's a married woman and must start living in her matrimonial home. One thing you all kids do not get yet is, she continue staying in her parents house is taking a toll on her marriage. She has her family interference though she hasn't mentioned and she's still thinking like a single woman. Ask yourself what of people who marry and move abroad and begin to live alone in their partners house because the other partner has to work. Her excuse of boredom isn't valid, she should move, if she does, her husband will find a way of engaging her to do away with her boredom which will cause them to bond more.

      Her husband then fiance being advise at that time to take a 1 bedroom is the best advice he was given. Why waste money he could save on rent when they were not even married yet. They could move to bigger place when they get marry.

      The advise for her not to wait for sometime before given birth is just out of love for the both of them. All she could have done is tell the husband calmly why they decided to do that at the 1st place. Then they both agree not tell get their parents involved in their lives that much. Why is she getting angry? See anger doesn't solve everything.

How do you expect her to stay alone in a big house with nobody living there with her. Poster,does your office have a branch in your husband city or vice versa.

  29. Stella I beg to differ, she is not trying to separate the family from what I got from the writeup except something else was sent to you that is different from the writeup .

    she and her husband are adults please and should make their decisions .

    I have two sons myself and I know by God's grace that I won't interfere in my children marriage. I am certain I will have lots to do other than meddling in my kids affairs .

    Its mother in laws that thinks like this that singles should be praying against.

    Poster, you have got a meddling mother in law in your hands, you and hubby should make your own decisions and live by them, whatever consequences that comes from will be yours alone to bear, all family members should do is support. Talk to hubby again and again and make him understand, and you have to be patient with him and don't cry.

    You might also need to create a distance, a respectful distance from in laws, do not ask for opinions, except when completely necessary , family interference from both sides causes a lot of issues in a home.

    You and your hubby don't need to say jack to anybody about your decisions , so tell him to desist from always running mama! And if a case arises for you to, it should always be 'we decided that...'or 'My wife and I have decided to..'

    You are not asking for opinions pls,we are just informing you..

    Your marriage is still young.
    You will grow.
    You both will grow...

    Plus you said he is God fearing so report him to God, I am certain,God will find a way to get across to him ...yes?

  31. Poster. You married a mummy's boy . EOD.
    My hubs asks for his mum's opinion on things sometimes, but he BRINGS them to OUR discussion as what it is; an OPINION. At the end of the day, we weigh everything and decide. His parents like reasonable adults, do not whine and complain over our choice. So far it's not a bad thing that will hurt us.
    This poster is within her rights to stay with her parents. It's on this same blog that I see stella and other bvs advice posters not to live with in laws. If her inlaws come back now, kindly tell me where she will go?.
    My advice to you, poster, is that on this issue, move to their house, and go to your family house with your discretion. If they ask why, kindly say you went to pick up your parents drugs or something and decided to spend the night since it was late.
    Learn to be diplomatic. Always remember you married a mummy's boy. You married him that way, so dont try to change him please. That wont be fair at all.
    Besides, the moment you try, expect your marriage to go downhill fast!

  33. Haba Stella, this your advice no follow at all. So a married couple(adults) cannot make a decision and stand by it without having parents interfering and super imposing their choice on them? C'mon, the house they intended renting, who is going to live in it, The couple or their parents in abroad?
    Parents should know when to release their grip over their children. At this stage in life what they owe him is prayers and advice. Advice is not something you force on someone. Let them make their decision as a couple and take responsibility for it. Not tomorrow, they start throwing blame games around.
    Imagine you inlaw coming to tell you how to arrange your home, where to place your furniture, when and how to cook, without your asking? Whatever happened to one having a choice?

As for waiting to carry bele, even your own mother will not agree for your brother's wife to wait, to Nigerians it means you are not fully committed. You want to be able to run.

  38. To be honest I can't see any bad advice coming from your in-law here. 1. You want your hubby to get 2/3 bed room flat even when you guys are not living together in the same location. My dear poster that's waste of money. Had it been you're living together now fine,but not living together and demanding your hubby get 2/3 bedroom flat for what now? You're not being prudent here and if I were your mother in-law I would give my son same advice your mother in-law gave her son
    2. Concerning exploring each other for 6months before you start giving birth. Your mil is also right here. A new wife life you thinking of going for contraceptives bcos you wanna explore before the kids start coming. I've seen alot of women who did it and ended up with a lot of regret. Our body react differently to family planing. Some will do it and once they need kids there will be no wahala while some will do it and from there straight up to infertility issues. I don't think it's a good ideal to start your home on experimentation. Better ignore those doctors giving you the go ahead to do such.
    And lastly, it doesn't speak well for a new bride to continue staying with her parent for whatever reason. People outside might start thinking all is not well in your home. Since your in-law are not based in Naija while not stay in there house instead? May God give you a lot of patience,tolerance and understanding to succeed as a good wife.

  39. I don't agree with SDK on this one. If the couple have agreed on an issue why is the hubby going back to discuss with his family? Why do they have a say in almost all their key decisions? No, its all wrong. I am not for where they stay or don't stay. My argument is the parents should not be a part of any decision making at all. They can give advice and back off. These two are trying to make a home. And yes they have parents but these parents should let them make their decisions right or wrong they should be allowed to grow. They should be allowed to learn.

    For crying out loud they are adults.

    This one the man is always turning around after his mum puts mouth its a no no. Its not going to stop. Its going to get worse.

    Poster pray that God will help your hubby to stand by his word and be strong enough to resist interference from his Mum.

    Its not really neat staying at your parents while you are married. People talk and it sends wrong signals. If you don't want to stay at your in-laws then get a place.

    Its not very nice when you and hubby have discussed what you want and desire then your in-laws change it. Its not correct.

Is it not on this blog that women have poured out their hearts on the anguish they have faced because of interfering in laws? Some women's homes have been destroyed because of husband's people.

    The Poster has every reason to be worried because na so e dey start. From instructing them to start having kids immediately after marriage to monitoring her womb if the children don't come immediately to recommending another wife if no children within five years.

  41. Stella, the wife is no wrong in wanting a life with her husband free from external interference, I don't know why she should be demonized. If she and her husband had an agreement and every time his parents disagree he changes his mind, she has every right to be frustrated. Why should parents be so meddlesome in the lives of their adult children?

    OP, I think moving to your own apartment in this instance is the best option like your husband has suggested. as far as pregnancy, it's your body and you can use contraception until you're ready to have a child. There's no need to tell your in-laws every detail, so just face your front and say amen to their prayers.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't understand some of the comments here at all, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

    I don't think she wants to separate her husband from his family, she only wants him to keep to their agreements. If they discuss and agree on something, he should not just allow his parents to change the plan.
    Besides, if he has a change of heart concerning any of their decisions, nothing stops him from rediscussing the issue with his wife, rather than letting her know that his change of mind is as a result of his parents interference.
    Both parties need wisdom abeg.
    Poster,just take it easy, and think things through, do not allow anyone make you feel that you don't have a say in your home. Try to reach a compromise with them, because your marriage is too young for this kind of stress.

    Poster I won't say you are a rigid person rather very controlling. And your husband is a softie that is so easy to pull at every angle. It is either he does everything you say or does what is parent says but the thing here is you are acting ignorant to your own ways which has led to a power tussle between you and the parent. It's either your way or his parent.

    Yea you control your husband the same way his parent does and the same thing you complain about his parents is the same thing you are doing.

    You call hum a good man because he let's you control him. Read what you wrote again"I WANTED" a three bedroom flat. Did your husband want it with you or you were the one whom suggested it? Being the easy person he was your husband accepted as what you wanted then his parent came and he also accepted what they wanted.

    I am also sure you were the one who suggested waiting till six months before getting pregnant maybe because of your work though you gave another reason for that decision but it was all about you darling. Your husband agreed again then his parent came and he accepted like he accepted what you wanted. I am confused if your husband do have a say in the plans in your marriage. I think you make all the plans and he just agrees to them without batting an eyelid no wonder you say he is the sweetest man alive😏

    You were also the one who toldyour husband you didn't want to stay in his parent's house after they have travelled back. It wasn't your husband idea at all and as usual your easily manipulated husband accepted. You are married but want to be living single. Staying in your parents house without shame and thinking you are doing the right thing. You have always had your way in the four years of your courtship and him conceding to your every whim but this marriage of yours is revealing your controlling side.

    Your in laws are not bad people as a matter of fact they gave good advice in all the situation you laid down here. You are the bossy and I-must have-kinda-person. Your husband is a weakling and you control him a lot. I hope this behaviour of yours ipens his eyes and please go back to your in laws house. Cut away from your parents apron

    My own dad stopped when he has seem the damage that has done to the family. All of you shouting eeh I have boys I dnt want her to control my sons. Please do well and marry your sons ok! Stop controlling your sons because you believe you are their mothers. No wonder we have fucked boys all over. How can you be making decisions for your kids who are married??. Most of the women shouting I don't want this kind of girl as a daughter inlaw are the ones who will not even allow their mother inlaw control their husbands.

  52. I believe all this young lady wants from her Husband is accountability. A man she can lean on. Believe me, what her husband is doing can make him lose her respect, which can lead to the demise of the marriage.

    In as much as in-laws are to be loved and welcomed, there are boundaries to be respected. The type of accommodation the couples need is strictly their personal decision, when they start having babies is strictly their personal decision, their living arrangements is strictly their personal decision. In-laws can give their opinion, which the couples might consider, but the final decision belongs to the couple. Not the in-laws, not even the husband alone nor the wife alone. Poster, your husband is obviously a Mama's boy.

    I think to let peace reign, let your husband know your reason for not staying at his parents' place is because the place is too big for you alone to stay. If he is not comfortable with you staying with your parents, he should get you a self contained apartment. Once this has been resolved, sit him down and have a talk. Let him know you don't like the way he allows his parents overule decisions you make as a couple. You need him to man up and you need to be accountable to each other. Let him know the way his parents make decisions in your marriage makes you uncomfortable. You have to be careful when talking to him so that you don't come sound aggressive to him. Infact make sure you come off broken and sad at the end of the talk. Play on his emotional side while not making his parents look bad.

    Stella, would you like a decision you make as a family overuled by an in-law without your knowledge?

    2. Tenth I am sure the wife 's parent knew about all the plans she started up there but agreed since it was coming from their daughter and they aren't affected. The same way the guys parent too knew about it too but disagreed. You don't expect them to not give their son a sensible advice concerning getting a 3 bedroom knowing fully well he will be the one to pay and him and his wife still won't even live in it due to the proximity of their workplace.
      There is no way they wouldn't know she isn't staying in the house they gave her maybe she returned the key to the security guard. And since the wife parent aren't unselfish enough to tell her to go back to her in laws house they had to tell her themselves.

  53. @Poster, long story short - your hubby has no mind/say of his own.

    Why would he even have agreed with you that you stay at your parents' after marriage? I don't know your tribe but it's not allowed in mine and I concur with his parents on this - they paid your dowry and married you properly so you should leave your parents' house, irrespective of what the issue is, mbok.

    You guys courted for FOUR years yet you could not know this about him? So what were you two really doing being together for 4 years? If you want peace in your home, then chill and carry your cross. You have signed the dotted lines, so it is what it has been.

    1. God bless you too. To think he agreed that she should stay at her parents place after marriage says a lot about his weak mind. She is the one wearing the trouser in that marriage. The parent knows the man would turn to a mumu in the hand of his wife that is why to stepped in to open his eyes to their nonsense arrangements.

      During that four years she didn't complain because he was doing everything she says Nah it's obvious he has no mind of his own so he let her direct him but now she is feeling the heat because she can't continue to tell him what to do his parents will suspect.

      Poster my advice for you is to let your husband be the man in that marriage. This is marriage now no longer dating. So before you say what you want, ask him what he wants so you can know his true mind else he will come back and tell you my parent said this whereas he agrees with them deep down in his heart and only said yes to you because he didn't want you to get upset and nothing more.

  56. Well I have been married for seven years,this year will make it 8 years.
    First your hubby is a mommy's boy.
    He is the one inviting his parents,and they follow his calling.
    The parents been more mature should have used wisdom,there are things u keep.
    Stop interfering even if you feel is best for your son.
    Allow them to learn and learn from their maistakes.
    You can walk with your ki all the days of his lives.
    My mom go just shut up.
    My mil will tell u to go and face your home.
    You are not asking too much.
    Ur hubby talks too much,I can't imagine talking about u guys to wait.
    What's their business in an issue like that please?
    We don't even involve family.
    In marriage be a realist.
    It helps you know what to do on Time.
    Again one advice I will tell my daughter's,whatever you know you can not take,never accept it from the beginning in the name of for peace to reign.
    Many women make this mistake.
    No matter how long the quarrel takes,
    Stand your ground as long as you are right.
    Quarrel strengthens couples,it makes them know what each will not tolerate later on,so each will know where to draw the line.
    It may not happen once but it does send a message to your spouse.
    Now on this issue.
    Stop telling your hubby some issues,if he finds out tell him he will go and tell his parents,
    You don't trust him.
    Those words are seeds
    Do not go anywhere if you don't want to.
    No matter the heat.
    If you both agree on a thing and he later dances to his parents,stand your ground.
    Keep telling him to man up.
    You both should pray,when you pray,in his presence tell God to give Ur hubby wisdom to handle any issue that arises.
    My dear the first three years of majority is not always easy.
    When they see u don't budge they will Stop reaching out to you and Ur hubby will give you attitude.
    Don't shake.
    When he is tired he will Come back home to you.but then he knows you are not a push over.
    Ur in-laws will give u space,the day u will reconcile,they will respect your boundaries and you all will be happy and love each other better.
    So whatever don't go into depression.
    It will pass away.

    1. There are people that conveniently plan to live in a 3 bedroom flat and do so especially when they can afford it.

      Couple that just started gbenshing should start trying for kids immediately? Unless they have not fantasised about all the styles and things they will do after marriage. 6 months is very okay to wait but the problem is not in his indecision to wait,for me it's his always agreeing to decisions with his parents concerning his new family( wife and future kids) without first discussing it with his wife. THIS IS TROUBLE

      His parents want them to move into their empty house hence asking him to rent o ly a 1 bedroom flat and now giving her the keys to that house.

      LET THEM DECIDE TOGETHER WHERE THEY WANT TO STAY WITHOUT INTERFERENCES.

They don't tell their daughter the truth at all.

  62. Nigerians hate women. If this woman is staying in that house alone now, tomorrow they will say she’s living as a single woman and she should quit her job. Blog visitors will say she should compromise. If the husband starts insulting you for being jobless, blog visitors will blame you. If she’s marked as someone who lives alone and gets robbed or attacked by armed robbers (or worse) they’ll still blame you. the people here telling you to compromise, are still the ones sending in chronicles. If submission stopped cheating or abuse all marriages would be perfect. Every thing In-laws do to a woman in marriage is because her husband ALLOWS and encourages it to happen. Mark this comment, they will soon control where you work and who you speak to. They will name your children withOut your input and monitor your expenses. You either take a stand now or suffer internally and still not be seen as a “virtuous woman”. Maybe you thought feminists or women who stand up for themselves are evil or stupid, now you’ve seen for yourself that closed mouths don’t get fed

    1. Nigerians don't hate women. This is about doing the right thing...being fair to some extent. As a newly married wife, is she supposed to be living with her parents? They even accommodated her and it's wrong.
      What is wrong in staying at her inlaws? They are not even around, so what's the fuss? For them to have given her the keys to the house shows they care about her.
      Even married ones still ask their parents opinion on issues. Just cos you are married don't mean everything your partner says is right. Wether it's right or wrong, as long as you are married, you must do whatever your spouse says?
      Truth is, some women are selfish. They want everything to go their way all the time. Meanwhile, when it comes to their own parents, you dare not disagree with what they say.

  63. Find a way to make your hubby see reasons. You are not wrong for spending more time in your parents house. That as a new bride thing is bullocks. All the bvs here advising you to stay there in your inlaws place and compromise will be ones saying the opposite if your husband was the one in your position and with the exception of his parent's house not existing in that same city. How many women here will advice he should stay in your parent's empty house? The reason can't pass he is man, dignity, respect, see finish etc the only solution would be for him to rent a place. How is this mentality different from the one of a single woman should not move out and rent a home and become independent but a man is free to and expected to do so.

    Don't relent in trying to make him reason with you.

  66. This is a local case of Meghan and Harry. Where we have a domineering wife and a husband trying to please her to avoid issue.

    Dear Poster, I do not believe you guys agreed on most of these issues but more of your agenda being imposed on the guys.

    Again even if you agree, sometimes you let superior wisdom prevail. From my personal experience, having a well furnished and cozy one bedroom as a new couple is better than the 2/3 bedroom you proposed. It gives you the privacy you want and since there is no spare room no family member will come to sleep over.

    On the issue of conception, its more of you too personal decision but put yourself in the MIL shoes, mothers generally including your own mum will pray their children conceive as soon as possible.

    After paying brideprice, what are you still doing in your parents house biko? If you can't get move in with him or do not like his parents house which is okay, then you guys should rent a place since you can afford it.

    As far as I am concern, you do not have any issue, just press down your ego and let good reason prevail.

    I sincerely question your maturity going into this marriage. I pray God will see you through so that you will not send Stella a divorce chronicle.

      Are there no single ladies who live alone? Even married ones due to the nature of their husband work have found themselves in the house alone most times and nobody ran away with random excuses to their parents' house.
