“I pray my mother-in-law is dead before I marry my husband’
I was in my first year in the university, when my room mate uttered those words. I initially thought she was only joking when she said it, but I soon realized that she wasn’t. Her mother’s distasteful experiences and those of the ‘many’ married women she knew and heard about had taught her what she believed to be a universal fact;
‘Most wives don’t get along with their mother-in-laws because
most mother-in-laws are difficult and even diabolic’.
After I got over the shock of hearing such a self-centered statement, I asked her how she’d feel if God answered a similar prayer from her brother’s future wife. The moment she realized that the answer of such a prayer could mean her own mother’s death, she quickly decided that her initial prayer point was inappropriate 😉
