Ghanaian relationship counsellor, Cyril George Carstensen has adviced wives on how to treat their mother-in-law’s.
In an interview with TV3, Carstensen told wives to be with strict with their boundaries and make sure nobody crosses it including their husband’s mother.
He maintained that those who choose to be nice to their mother-in- laws would have problem in the future
He said: “Anyone who compliments the mother-in-law has a problem. Anyone nice to the mother-in-law will have a problem in the future. You will never be able to befriend your mother-in-law. It’s depravity and disrespect.
“My wife and my mother will never be friends. They do not fight, but they are unable to be friends. Respect must be present. The respect comes from the fact that she is an in-law, and you respect her on that level. You are not required to be nice to your mother-in-law.
“Don’t address her as your mother. She is your wife’s mother-in-law. Don’t be shy about saying it. She is not your mother, but rather your husband’s mother. You will never be her daughter. Remember that.”
