Narrating her ordeal to Auntie Naa on Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, the woman said that because of the constant complaints, she has decided to reduce her daily meal from three squares to two, in the morning and evening.

Despite this, she said her husband, whom she met through one of her brothers, is still complaining, disturbing her peace of mind.

"After three to five days into the marriage, anytime I cook or eat, my husband complains that I eat too much. He bought two cups of sugar and tins of milk but when I use them he complains and says that that I have finished them all in one week," she said.
