Cheryl Cole's Mum To Blame For Failed Marriage?
Experts claim that Joan Callaghan could have been "stifling" Chezza...
With reports suggesting that the Fight For This Love star didn't tell her mum that she had been apparently meeting Ashley in secret, experts have now suggested that the 51-year old could be the reason for Cheryl being unlucky when it comes to romance.
Relationship psychologist Beverly Stone told the tabloid: "A mother’s interference in a married daughter’s life can have negative and positive effects. The mother will guide her daughter to things that will improve her life and offer advice and compassion that a husband might not have."
"But in doing so, the mother de-powers the husband. So the husband might see that his wife is not listening or supporting him and he has no influence over her. Instead, his mother-in-law is the one who tells his wife what to do, which can lead to the destruction of her daughter’s marriage."
Stone added: "A mother with a strong personality, used to making the decisions at home, will want to transfer this to her daughter’s home too. By being too accommodating the couple could inadvertently allow the mother to direct their family affairs."
