When it comes to keeping a happy home, it appears everyone has their own formula that they believe works for them. A Ghanaian counsellor recently left tongues wagging with his own marriage advice,
Identified as Carstensen Lutterodt, he advised women not to build any friendship with their mothers-in-law if they want their marriages to work.
He stated that they should never let them into their kitchen.
According to him, these women are witches in disguise that bring competition into a wife's home.
He added that men could be friends with his mother-in-law and even have her live with them as he would be treated like a king by his family and society. However, if a man lets his mother into his home like that, she will turn him into a 'zombie'.

His opinion triggered mixed reactions. A lot of people did not agree with him as they said he kept going back and forth without making any meaning.
A commenter, missadedayo said: "My own MiL is not a witch o. I don't know what you are on about Sir. Your advice is more likely to destroy than mold."
Also, a Nigerian businessman recently shared his thoughts on issues affecting marriages.
Identified as Martins Akwu, he recently took to a private Facebook group to dish out some interesting piece of advice to the menfolks on how to handle their marriages and keep their wives happy.
According to him, men should stop letting their mothers have a say in their marriages as they are their mothers and not their first wife. Akwu said doing otherwise makes life difficult for their wives.
Meanwhile, a couple has been granted a divorce after the husband picked his mother over his wife, following irredeemable wrangling over the role of the man’s mother in their matrimonial home.
The wife filed for divorce from her husband on January 22, 2019, saying her mother-in-law had taken over her place in her home.
