June 29, 2016 – Abusive & Controlling Mother In Law Crashes Son’s 15-Year-Old Marriage

My Husband’s Mother Had Beaten & Stripped Me Naked On 2 Occasions – Hurting Wife Tells Court

A Customary Court in Lagos today dissolved the 15-year-old marriage between one Dapo Ashorobi and his wife, Titilayo, over constant abuse and assault by the latter’s mother-in-law.

The President of the court, Mr Awos Awosola, ordered the dissolution of the marriage after concluding that the union had broken down irretrievably.

“The marriage between the two parties has broken beyond redemption. The marriage between the two is hereby dissolved with effect from today, June 29,” Awosola ruled.
He also granted the custody of the three children; Basir, 10; Mutiat, 8 and Khadijat, 3, to their mother.

The petitioner, Titilayo, had earlier informed the court that she could no longer stay in the marriage because of the constant abuse and assault of her mother-in-law.
The 32-year-old trader said that her mother-in-law had turned her husband into a “simpleton” and was the one controlling their home.

“My husband and I have been married for 15 years and we are still staying in his family house where his mother also lives.
“There has been constant trouble because of my mother-in-law’s presence in our home.
“My husband takes directives from his mother about how to manage his home.
“On several occasions, my husband will not eat the food I prepare just because his mother said he should not.

“My mother-in-law had beaten and stripped me naked on two occasions and my husband did not say or do anything about it.
“I can no longer bear the emotional and physical abuse as well as maltreatment,” she said.
The mother of three, therefore, prayed the court to dissolve the marriage.

The husband, Dapo, who did not deny the allegations, also prayed the court to dissolve the marriage as requested by his wife.

He told the court that his wife had refused to accept his pleas and had rejected all efforts toward reconciliation.

    Let me speak not of that wicked mother-in-law because it seems the normal thing for them to be assertively domineering over their daughters-in-law. It is abnormal when a mother-in-law is completely favourably disposed towards her son’s wife. Who I blame is the husband. The man is not a man who cannot protect his wife from undue assaults. He is a moron who has no mind of his own, but is controled like a robot. That man is simply not man enough, or his mother would not be controlling like that.

    Mummy’s boy. Go and suck breast!

    Some mother inlaws can be wicked. Anyway, maybe she’s from Northern part of Nigeria, where we have wicked step mothers.

    The family house is the mother in law’s home since she was there before the son married. The son should therefore have moved out when he married. It is sad that he allowed fifteen years marriage crash over a situation that re-location of his family might have saved.

    Mother in law from hell. Some men never grow up or break ties with their mother. So now that your wife and children have abandoned you with your Mama, go and ask her to open her legs at night when you want sex. Mumu boy, wicked mother. I pray your daughters have the same experience in their marriage. Best wishes to you and your children, Titilayo. I hope you find true happiness and the court awards you adequate financial support for your children.

    This guy has got it wrong from the beginning. You don’t stay in the same house where you were raised, grew up, married and expect that everything will just be fine. Women especially mother in law are full of jealous, may be just because this guy was showing his wife some love and caring which her mother in law never had the opportunity to experience when she was a spinster may be the main reason why she was so hostile with this woman. Although Nigeria Economic situation might forced this guy to remain in a family house in order for him to save rental fee or may be the mother in law is rendering financial assistance especially towards raising the kids but whatever the reason may be, the disadvantage of living in traditional family house outweigh its advantage. This is why some women will go as far as supporting their husband even financially, by making sure they secure their own apartment. Staying in family house always put a woman in trouble. Some mother in law will now have the opportunity to see what they cook in their pot. They will start compare how much they used during their time to cook soup. If the husband refuse to say something, the mother in law will now change the topic and start making some false allegation that, oh! Wicked wife, that is the reason why your husband cannot have his own house. You have used all his money to cook expensive foods. You are the one delaying his progress or she had cooked him love food or she has watched her private to cook for him. One thing that amazes me about this evil mother in law is, if any man doing the same thing for their daughter, they will be saying their daughter has a good husband, her husband is taking care of her, they will be so proud of their daughter but they dont want to see their son showing too much affection towards his wife. This has been a long time problem which I think the only solution to this problem is to keep distance from these mother in law. If this guy had stayed in a room and a parlor, I guess he will be living in harmony with his wife till today.
