Former Nigerian singer turned clergyman, Emmanuel Okosi, popularly known as Soul-E, has advised women against getting married to men whose mother and sisters do not like them.
The clergyman, in a video posted on social media, said the worst mistake a woman can man is to marry into such a family because they would eventually regret their decision.
According to him, based on his experience as a prophet, women who marry into such families end up with multiple problems and challenges in marriage.
He further stated that when a man’s mother and sisters love you as a woman, your marriage have a better chance of lasting long.
Soul E said in part,
“The worst mistake most women do is that they get involved with partners who the partner’s family, the mother in-law or sister in-law does not like you. You will keep facing battles, you will keep facing witchcraft. 90% of barreness in marriages today are sponsored by hatred from mother in-laws and sister in-laws.”
