Is your friend majoring in something that will earn him a lot of money? I sure hope so, because he's going to need a lot of money to pay the divorce attorneys. Parental meddling, even when you don't
agree with what the parent is saying is poison enough. Holding you mother's (or father's) opinion in higher regard than your spouse's is a Black Mamba in a suitcase full of money. Sorry, but I just saw Kill Bill-Vol. 2
Your friend is in for a world of hurt if he thinks he can continue with that attitude, unless he mail orders a bride.
