Wife wants split after hubbie brings Mamma on honeymoon

(ANSA) - Rome - An Italian woman has asked for a separation after her husband brought his mother with them on honeymoon.

Marianna C., 36, filed a petition with a Rome judge, saying the problem began when she saw her mother-in-law turn up at Rome airport as the couple were set to fly off to Paris.

She "politely" tried to object but her husband Stefano said he "couldn't leave his sick mother alone," according to court papers.

After the three-way honeymoon the mother-in-law also spent the Christmas holidays with the newly-weds, prompting an exasperated Marianna to drive back home to her own parents in her native Naples.

Stefano's "excessive ties" to Mamma "made it impossible to establish a healthy conjugal relationship," the petition said.
