“My in-mother-in-law law’s has destroyed my marriage.” She is a jerk who despised me and caused me to lose my job.

“Whenever she comes to the house to provide my wife post-natal care, she bosses me about. Anything I do to make her happy irritates her. There is never serenity in my house while she is here.” He stated

“My mother-in-law is always provoking squabbles between my wife and I.”

“I left the home after one of these arguments, and when I returned in the evening, she had relocated everything in my apartment, including my wife and children.”

“Since then, every attempt to locate my wife and children has failed.”

“I wish to divorce my wife and get custody of my two children on these grounds,” he stated.
