Bride flees from nagging mum-in-law

MALAYSIA - THE constant nagging of her mother-in-law was just too much for a Vietnamese bride. 

She left her husband and went back to her homeland after just three months of marriage because she got tired of the nagging over household chores. 

Factory driver Chan Thin Sang, 38, said his wife 25-year-old Mai Thi Thuy Hang, who is three months pregnant, left home on Sept 14 after a misunderstanding with his mother. 

He expressed his love for Mai Thi and how much he wanted her back, saying that "money is not the issue." 

I believe I found the love of my life with Mai Thi," he said. 

Speaking at a press conference organised by Johor Baru MCA Public Complaints Bureau on Sunday, Chan said his mother was willing to compromise as long as Mai Thi comes back. 

Such is his determination to have her back that he is even willing to move out with her to their own place if necessary. 

"She left home and returned to Vietnam with the help of the agent, who introduced us back in June," Chan said. 

Chan added that Mai Thi, who communicated with him in Mandarin, only contacted him once, saying that she wanted to give birth to their baby in Vietnam. 

"I did not agree to this as I want my child to be a Malaysian citizen. 

"She has not contacted me ever since and I desperately want her back as I am very much in love with her," he said. 

Chan said he paid the agency RM14,000 (S$5,800) to marry Mai Thi. 

He has lodged a police report over Mai Thi’s disappearance. 

Johor Baru (South) OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Yaakob urged anyone with information to contact the police hotline at 07-2212999 or the nearest police station.

Men should learn this principle from the Birds....

Do baby birds when grown up, built their own nest in their parent's nest ???

I have NEVER seen a grown up bird ever built their own nest INSIDE their parent's nest or nest with their parents when reached adult age...

They fly out & explore the world...they meet their bird mate & built their own NEST, where they can REST...

That's why it's healthy for a married man to built his own nest OUTSIDE of his parent's place. U can built a nest NEXT to yr parents... but don't ever built yr nest INSIDE yr parent's nest.

Is it any wonder why many divorces happened because of in-laws interfering ???

You can honor your parents... but once U r married, be a MAN .....

Maybe the purpose of the police report is to get the police to throw his mother into jail so that his wife can return.

Silly man. Why waste time to file a police report? His wife didn't break the law. He should fly to Vietnam to convince his wife that they will start a new life together, free from his mother and peace in the house. It is not easy for the old lady to change easily to please his wife. It is like asking a leopard to change its spots.
