Case Study: We husband and wife are at the point where even we are not talking to each other just living in the same house for children sake. I love him very much, but due to some miss-happening or ( galatfahmi ) we are in this situation. He is taking all the wrong meaning whatever I do for him or saying to him. This is now affecting the children & the atmosphere of home. Mother in law keeps a tab on all activities of her bahu and keeps on interfering in her professional as well as personal matters. It is said that bahu is expected to update saas about all her professional activities, something that bahu does not appreciate. Wife feels The problem is that the mother-in-law always tries to dominate and that is where the tussle started.
Wife feels husband is not listening to her & her husband is being influenced by her mother in law because she had not liked her in the beginning. What was missing is good communication between mother in law & wife. Husband had anger management problem so never settled the difference between his wife & mother. As per Husband, he wanted to avoid to become a sandwich between his wife & his mother. So noncommunication was making it more difficult for husband & wife to live joyfully. All wife wanted was priority & quality time with her husband. Mother in law issue was solved once they started communicating in positively with respect. Husband had a polite conversation with his Mother that how her behavior with his wife is affecting their marriage. Mother offered that you both live alone somewhere, but that was not the solution husband was looking. He did care for his mother so couldn’t leave her alone. All three sat with peace with new understanding & communication skills through counseling to resolve their conflicts & now living in the same house but in a happier environment.
