Nigerian Woman Seeks Counsel As Husband Files For Divorce After She Did This To Her Mother-in-law In Retaliation

A young woman has sought the advice of netizens after her husband filed for a divorce over her disrespectful action towards his mother.

The new mom explained that her mother-in-law came to provide traditional postpartum care and support for her and her newborn, which is popularly called ‘omugwo’.

According to the woman, she and her mother-in-law got into an argument which escalated into a physical altercation. She said her mother-in-law slapped her for talking back at her, and she returned the slap in a heartbeat.

Explaining why she slapped her back, the nursing mother said she retaliated the slap because her mother-in-law has no right to slap her as she is not her mother.

This apparently infuriated her husband and he sent her packing from their matrimonial home, and filed for a divorce. The woman said she is confused and needs advise on how to handle the matter.

She wrote,

“Please mummy they are ganging up on me please share for me now. Is getting hotter here. My mum In-law that came for omugwo has scattered my peaceful home.

The thing is that me and her entered argument and she mentioned my mum did not train me not to reply adults when they are talking and I told her what did her own mum teach her that she is here to cause problems and she stood up and slapped me and I revenge.

She is not my mum and have no right to slap me. THis made my husband file for a divorce out-rightly, that he can never stay with someone that raised hands to his mum. But she did not explain the truth that made him so angry.
