Nigerian rights activist, Aisha Yesufu has advised married couples to keep their mothers out of their marriage if they want it to work.
According to the co-convener of #BringBackOurGirls campaign, the moment you start sharing what is happening in your marriage with your mother, she will interfere, and that’s the end.
She wrote in her Twitter thread, “When you get married, the first person you have to ensure you keep out of your marriage is YOUR MOTHER! Those love and concerns and wanting to find all is okay in the guise of love? It is not healthy! You start sharing what is happening you are done for! They begin to interfere!
As a new couple, learn what works for you. It is unique. Develop it yourself the way you want to. Keep everyone out of it! Do your thing and it is never easy marrying two different lives together. So take your time.
Keep everyone out and do you!”
