We need your advice. Who’s to be blamed????
Marriage Chronicles: There is obviously no cordial relationship between the wife and brother-in-law so, he shouldn’t have gone to dish food without the permission of his brother’s wife. The wife on the other hand should have just issued a polite warning to the young guy other than resorting to slapping him.
The husband didn’t mean for her to leave his house or the marriage. He only wanted to establish peace and cordial relationship between his brother and his wife, that’s what his role as the head-leader of the family entails. However, he noticed his wife is not accommodating to his family and not every man would accept that, hence he directed her to apologize to his brother at least, for the slap. Nobody really want to be separated from the family they loved over the years.
Wife should swallow her pride, respect her husband and maintain the peace of her home and marriage. This doesn’t take anything from her, rather it adds values to her as a good wife and sister-in-law.
