The wife of Lawrence Achudume, founder of Victory Life Bible Church, Rev. Folake Achudume, in a recent interview with Vanguard, shared some interesting facts about her experience when she first got married.
According to the woman of God, 75 percent of her married friends at the time, were having issues with their mother-in-law. As a result of this, she grew very scared as a senior friend even advised her to pray her mother-in-law's death before she got married.
She went on to reveal that another lady advised her to pray for her mother-in-law's death so as to have peace in her home. She however rejected the advise and prayed for her mother-in-law's acceptance instead.
See her response: So, I asked her, don’t you have a mother? My mother has a son and if his wife prays that her mother-in-law should die, do you know that she’ll be praying that my mother should die? Don’t you think that if we too have a son, our son too will married one day and if the lady he wants to marry starts saying the same prayers about us what would happen?
I didn’t heed her advice. I’d rather pray that our mothers-in-law would accept us. That was the mentality I brought into my marriage. I prayed to God that “what I cannot do to my mother help me not to do it to my mother-in-law, what I can give my mother help me to be able to give my mother-in-law”, because I knew if I can handle that aspect of marriage I’ve handle the major challenges.
Speaking on how she managed a relationship with her husband's mother, she had this to say: "My mother-in-law speaks English and we relate very well. Initially, it was awkward, but with time, she was lively and lovely. In fact, we are the best of friends and we confide in each other."
Rev. Folake Achudume advised ladies to see their mother-in-laws as their mother and best friend in order to have peace.
"I always advise spinsters to know their expectations in marriage and be ready to pay the price and they should be averse to the “they want to take my husband away from me” mindset. Once you know that your husband and his mother are close, the best thing is to see her as your mother and best friend so that all of you are close."
