Although the doctor is Tamil, she could be quoting an Akan woman word for word.
James Baldwin had some observation as to why men are so unwilling to play ball with their wives on account of their maternal attachments. I guess being gay he would know. I have to dredge it up and quote it here.
What women may not realize is regardless how they bitch about their husbands having more concern for their mothers and sisters affairs they are the ones who subconsciously condition theirs sons to act that way, ie they condition their sons the way their mothers-in-law condition their husbands, and their sons express the same attitude towards the daughters-in-law.
