Take my mother-in-law, please.

Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, archbishop of Genoa and head of Italy’s bishops conference, is making headlines with his warning to men: Grow up.

If husbands remain too close to their mothers, their marriages will be shaky, the cardinal told a regional Catholic tribunal last week, according to the Telegraph. ”When you rely totally on your parents for every step, a spouse does not know what to do or not to do because he’s constantly seeking the consensus of a third person,” Bagnasco said.

Monsignor Paolo Rigon, one of the tribunal judges, agreed.  ”Psychologically, the parent becomes the true spouse and the person he married is replaced,” he said.
