"Dear Pulse,

My name is Theophilus Ndulue. I am one of your ardent readers and I like the way your fans react to issues and I would like them to help me out of my predicament.

I have been married for seven years now but I have not been enjoying my marriage due to my wife's attitude towards me.

Though I love her so much and I have always done everything to please her, my wife does not have any iota of respect for my family, especially my mother. She disrespects them so much to the point of physically abusing my mother the last time she visited.

She does not want to see any of my family members while her family come to my home anytime they want, even without informing me.

Presently, her brother and sister live with us but when one of my cousins came to stay with us temporarily while she attended an interview, my wife practically threw the poor girl out, accusing me of sleeping with her.

She says my mother is a witch and should not come to visit even when she gave birth.

I am at my wits end and do not know what to do. as much as I love my wife and do not want anything to affect our marriage for the sake of our children, I love my family as well.

Friends have advised that I beat her up or even divorce her but I do not want to get to that extreme.



Dear readers, on Morning Teaser today, we ask: what would you do if you were in Theophilus' situation?
