Nagging Doubt

Married To The Mob

A hen-pecked husband has been granted a divorce in Italy because his mother-in-law keeps nagging him. He told the court in Salerno that his wife's mother had not left him alone through four months of marriage. The man said he would consider marriage again - but only if he did not have to deal with a mother-in-law.

FOOTNOTE: Mother in lore.

Are the Italians short on duct tape? Have they no fruit cellars?

I'm having visions of the lady in "Throw Mama From The Train." Owennnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!! LOL.

Hadn't he met his prosective mother-in-law before he married? I say the man must be a fool and the mother-in-law is quite right to nag him.

David: What's he going to do, have the mother knock off first.

Sounds like a wet week to me! Or a big girl's blouse. What is the matter with the man?
Thought Italians were stallions!

He didn't have a hit man in the family.

In that sense I am extremely fortunate in my Italian mother in law: She is thoroughly adorable.

Haha I had read about this the other day...
Brings to mind all the mother-in-law jokes, but as Maggie May said he sounds like a real big girl's blouse! I'd say: stand up to the woman, man! and protect your marriage!

Oye! This gives us italian MIL's a bad name! Guess he didn't think to ploy her with vino!

The man is wise. But maybe he would have been wiser to figure that out before the wedding.
