My mother brought me up singlehandedly. Now the person I call my wife wants me to abandon my mother"

@_Peridot_ commented:

Did you get a nanny or housekeeper to help her out with your mom and kids? If you didn't I think you should, taking care of kids alone is a lot, not to talk of adding an elderly person. Also did you discuss this with her?

Nobody said you should abandon your mother but don't pass her as a responsibility to your wife. She suffered for you ba? Then stay at home and take care of her.

Bro, this is the reason we're making money. Your money can solve this problem and everybody - you, your wife and mum, wil be OK. Don't make it look like your wife is a bad person.

@MoeMuna_ replied:

Let your mum stay with your wife while you pay a nurse or nanny to come daily and attend to your mum, if you can afford it.

A marriage counsellor known as Betty Mensah in an interview with YEN.com.gh shared her view on the young man's dilemma;

"It is very unfair that his wife wants him to get rid of his mother. When a woman marries, it is not just the man she is getting married to, the man's entire family is included.
We generally advise that external families members should not bother married couples too much but in this situation, the wife needs to be considerate given that the only one her mother-in-law has now is her son and it will be very sad and ungodly to cut her of."
