Dealing with an angry wife

Recommended Posts

Guest

Its been 6 months or so since I am married. Didn't ask for a dowry or anything. 

My wife is usually nice to my mom and dad, although I think she just tries acting sweet and has tendencies of passive-aggressiveness inside her . Sometimes she also becomes very angry which is not justified.

for instance today she said 'you people have not purchased me' . My mom sold her gold rings to make a gold chain for her. Dad often brings nice fruits etc for her, and since I don't have siblings, she easily enjoys food etc in house. Doesn't do a job , only studies and we have paid the fee so she may be self sufficient. 

her background is she comes from a poor family but her father is equally arrogant if not more , and has never addressed me as 'dear son' . Still I call him daddy ji . Her mom keeps telling me how we should visit punjab again but honestly I don't have  money or vacation to do that . We're on EMIs since my marriage for the loan I took. 

Despite providing her with everything and she only partly doing work at house, she still has anger and arrogance and if I or mom say something angrily for her own good, she often acts in ego . Today my mom cried because of her because she in arguments said 'you people havent purchased me ' . 

How to deal with a woman like this ?? I don't think I can afford a divorce either . Is she something that can be improved. I thought she was sanskari , oh well looking at how she back answers I don't think I can say that again .

Shouldn't have sold her rings, bro, regardless of whether they were melted and repurposed as a chain. Those were "hers." These small-minded third worlders don't need an excuse to cultivate grudges and create problems. You just gave her a gold-plated excuse to cause trouble and escalate every tiny issue into something bigger.

Take the holiday to Punjab and take her with you. Let her stay for a few weeks or even a few months but you return after a few days. Don't call her. I mean it. See what happens.

How is dropping his wife and him returning home going to resolve her issues, what you need to do is ask why she gets upset so quick, see a councillor or something,  do something productive together.  Money constraints at the beginning of a marriage isn't good either.

I seen this problems so many times.

A family marry their sons to a girl from a poor family as they feel sorry for them. They try their best to acommodate the girl into their family (even not ask for dowry) and hand everything to her on a plate and the girl turns out to be a right cow. 

No appreciation whatsoever. 

It is these kind of situations that make me see the reason why mother-in-laws can be harsh with their daughter-in-laws. 

I deplore the dowry system but I wonder if these kind of families sense weakness when a dowry is not demanded from them.

There is an expression,  " Those that bite the hand that feeds them, lick the boots that kick them".

This girl I think subconsciously feels resentful because she has had everything handed to her in a plate, she hasn't earned it.

Your first mistake is devising solutions that are designed to work for mature and sensible adults. She's behaving somewhere between an animal and a spoilt child. So treat her like one. Based on what OP has said, she seems incapable of reciprocating and appreciating the efforts made to welcome her into the family and understanding that not everyone's coffers are overflowing with material goods and money. But the rings > chain move was ill advised. Very ill advised.

Plus, counselling? Again, it's a solution for adults, not these unfeeling, cold, demons in human form. 

There's a mistaken assumption made by some of our people that a bride from a comparatively poorer and less affluent background will have developed a sense of humility and all the agreeable personality attributes that belong to someone who hasn't had their head turned by materialism, the chief idea for selecting such a partner being she won't cause waves at her in-laws and therefore is less prone to nakhre. That may have been true once upon a time but now is no longer a reality.

So, you either nip this behaviour in the bud at this relatively early stage -- thus preventing a lifetime of hassle and grief for all -- or you allow this behaviour to seed, sprout and grow. I know what route I'd take, and it's not one involving counselling or building a jigsaw puzzle together.

Daym Singh! 

You think fobbing the missus off like that isn't going to create further issues! 

Then, what happens when Ajeet's big 'secret' comes out too.

Well you hearing s one sided story to be honest, you don't even know the person and now she is 'animal' and a ''spoilt child" ? What ever happened to empathy , this is the problem with divorce rates within the Sikh community.

Until she decides to join the forum and present her case, I can only go by what OP has presented.

I'm not suggesting he should divorce her or even raise his voice to her. Just let her cool off for a while. If she has any common sense, she'll begin to wonder after a few weeks why nobody has called to arrange her journey back to her in-laws. How he deals with her from that point onward will go some way to set the tone for the entire relationship. He'll send a message to her and her family without making a scene or a tamasha of the situation. It's a win-win for all.

1. the girl is here alone - which will make her defensive

2. she comes from struggle, whereas you come from relative ease - so envy could be an issue also inferiority complex kicks up

3. She may not understand English language fluently or culture (quietness, polite, considerate etc) so feels ill equipped to deal with real world around her.

4. If her posessions are gifts , it is a mistake to just up and convert them , there may have been a sentimental meaning attached to them . Let her decide what she wants to do with them rather than dictating to her.

just ease her into life here by explaining stuff to her , it will be hard no doubt since events have made her cagey but try to hang in there . My bhabhi had similar attitude , very suspicious of everyone's motives for treating her well  , and giving her gifts , talking to her nicely and yes we never asked for daaj or gifts . It was her SIL who trained her to hate her MIL SIL BIL as supposedly we are out to get her . Punjabiyat is such a trap for intelligence , they all end up duffers believing superstitious nonsense

Not at all. Didn't his sass expect a visit from the couple? I'm suggesting he take a short break with his wife to the in-laws. Enjoy the break, see the sights, etc. Before departure, he should tell the missus she can stay at her pekhe for a few weeks if she likes. She won't say no. She'll jump at the opportunity. Ajeet should play it chilled, relaxed, and agreeable while in Punjab. He returns to Mumbai, and then he should wait for the inevitable phone call asking him when he'll be arriving to take his missus home. Checkmate. Don't threaten her, don't verbally abuse, heck, don't even lose your temper. Just explain she needs to get her head out of her behind and start behaving herself or she can stay at her parents' indefinitely. This little play requires nerves of steel. If he blinks, he'll lose. If he sees it through to the end, she'll get the message. Job done. No drama, no jaloos, etc.

I like that strategic thinking....hehehehe

 

Ain't it a shame that two adults can't just talk it our rationally though.... which I know is neigh on impossible between genders in our community. It's still a shame though. 

Women...Venus, Men mars and all that.....

We need to hear and factor in this type of stuff too.

This is exactly what it is. How can you win? Take dowry, and you're a villain, greedy, anti-Sikh, etc. Don't take the dowry, and the bride's family consider the groom and his family to be an easy touch, which then causes the bride to resent the groom for not bleeding her parents dry, and gives rise to niggling issues between various parties. Do people enjoy a boot on their neck, lol?

It seems to be that in Punjabi society there is no room to be virtuous. 

They seem to side with evil because it is seen as strength.

Strength over there is conflated with fear.

There is a Machiavellian saying " if there is choice between being loved or feared it is better to be feared"

Like all things Sikh, the correct course of action is to take a middle path.

That is not to take dowry and be fair but if they step out of line, make sure they understand the consequences of their actions.

Paradoxically, the rabble then flock to holy men who are, to all intents and purposes, docile, spiritual and virtuous. What's the draw of such men if the negative characteristics the public seek in the average man are seen as positives in someone apparently religious? Lol, what a confused bunch.

    • As this virus is out doing its worst in the world and we have evil sunni salafi islamic terrorists running around harming our people and other innocents. I think its time we did some reading and reflection on what sikhi and sikh history says about testing and trying times.

If you are weakened by the pains of hunger and poverty,   ਦਮੜਾ ਪਲੈ ਨਾ ਪਵੈ ਨਾ ਕੋ ਦੇਵੈ ਧੀਰ ॥ दमड़ा पलै ना पवै ना को देवै धीर ॥ Ḏamṛā palai nā pavai nā ko ḏevai ḏẖīr. with no money in your pockets, and no one will give you any comfort,   ਸੁਆਰਥੁ ਸੁਆਉ ਨ ਕੋ ਕਰੇ ਨਾ ਕਿਛੁ ਹੋਵੈ ਕਾਜੁ ॥ सुआरथु सुआउ न को करे ना किछु होवै काजु ॥ Su▫ārath su▫ā▫o na ko kare nā kicẖẖ hovai kāj. and no one will satisfy your hopes and desires, and none of your works is accomplished -   ਚਿਤਿ ਆਵੈ ਓਸੁ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ਤਾ ਨਿਹਚਲੁ ਹੋਵੈ ਰਾਜੁ ॥੨॥ चिति आवै ओसु पारब्रहमु ता निहचलु होवै राजु ॥२॥ Cẖiṯ āvai os pārbarahm ṯā nihcẖal hovai rāj. ||2|| if you then come to remember the Supreme Lord God, you shall obtain the eternal kingdom. ||2||   ਜਾ ਕਉ ਚਿੰਤਾ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਦੇਹੀ ਵਿਆਪੈ ਰੋਗੁ ॥ जा कउ चिंता बहुतु बहुतु देही विआपै रोगु ॥ Jā ka▫o cẖinṯā bahuṯ bahuṯ ḏehī vi▫āpai rog.

The battle of Balakot marks an extremely important revolution in the Sikh affairs of the late 1700’s. Inspired by extremism and an answer to the decadent policies of the virtually extinct mughal empire, the battle was the first jihad launched via the Wahaabi ideology. It aimed to usher Punjab into an Islamic past which would rival the golden age of the mughal state. Lead by a fanatical individual it aimed to eradicate the Sikh empire, expand the new state’s border to connect with British India and ultimately birth an extensively powerful Islamic state. Plans which were paid put by the Khalsa forces. The battle was the brainchild of Syed Ahmed, a deeply religious Islamic individual who has been awarded the honor of being the first indigenous Jihadi of the Indian sub-continent. He was born in Rai Breli in 1786 A.D., a time when the mughal state’s funeral bells were pealing with ever greater pitch. The Maratha confederacy had turned on their Mughal masters and had succeeded in establishing an independent domain of sorts, despite being severely mauled by the ferocious Afghanis. The Sikhs had succeeded in liberating major portions of Punjab and planting the seeds of a powerful and Alexandrian empire, whilst a major portion of the sub-continent was divided among various warlords, generals and princes.   Maharajah Ranjit Singh. Syed Ahmed easily garnered the factor that attacking the British, who were a rising power, would earn him no territorial merit. It would only invoke the latter’s wrath upon him and crush his campaign. The Marathas despite being severely weakened by their engagements with the Afghanis, Sikhs and the British still presented a murderous front to any potential invader. This only left the Sikh empire, an isolated but extensively impregnable domain ruled over by Maharajah Ranjit Singh. An awe-inspiring Napoleonic figure in his own right. Ahmed based his assumptions on the Afghani intolerance of the Sikh infidels. He unwittingly assumed that the Afghani polity would aide him in crushing the infidel and liberating what he saw as being an oppressed populace. With these potential factors as his basis, Ahmed left his family and with total faith in Allah traversed towards Peshawar. His journey was arduous and extensively bone breaking. He took a route via Sindh, Quetta, Qandhar and Kabul, and arrived heavily exhausted in Peshawar where he outlined his plan to the various regional warlords and warrior populace. An extensive number of these individuals had prior to Ahmed’s arrival, crossed steel with the Khalsa forces and were heavily disillusioned by his ineptness and heavy reliance on fate amalgamated with luck. After depicting their ridicule of his planned campaign they left him, yet despite this failure, on Ahmed’s part, he still managed to raise a detachment of Mujhaideen warriors who being hot-blooded and head strong readily agreed to attack Sikh domains. Led by Ahmed they succeeded in attacking a few Sikh territories but were mostly beaten back, which subsequently lowered their morale and provoked no reaction from the Khalsa border forces. Ahmed on seeing this and after conferencing with his accomplices, including Shah Ismail the grandson of Shah Waliulah of Delhi, decided on a new course of action. He adopted a nomadic agenda and continually traveled from one province frontier to it’s neighbor until ultimately he set foot in Balakot in 1831 A.D. Foregoing all militaristic and rational notions, Ahmed’s strategy was to engage the Sikh in the mountains of Balakot, annihilate them and conquer neighboring Kashmir; another extended domain of Ranjit Singh’s regional fiefdom. “I am in the mountains of Pakhli (name of the area). The people here have welcomed us with warmth and hospitality and have given us a place to stay. They have also promised to support us in the jihad. For the time being, I am camped in the town of Balakot, which is located in the (river) Kunhar pass. The army of the infidels [kuffars] is camped not too far from us. Since Balakot is located at a secure place (surrounded by hills and bounded by the river), God willing, the infidels will not be able to reach us. Of course, we may choose to advance and enter into a battle at our own initiative. And this we intend to do in the next two or three days. With the help of God, we will be victorious. If we win this battle, and, God willing, we will, then we will occupy all the land alongside the Jehlum River including the Kingdom of Kashmir. Please pray, day and night, for our victory.” -Syed Ahmad’s letter to an accomplice. Hari Singh Nalwa, the lion-shredder, was the viceroy and commander-in-chief of the Punjab territories encircling Balakot. An intelligent and fearsome general Hari Singh commanded his main captain Sher Singh to encircle Balakot and move a battalion of the Khalsa forces to Muzaffarabad. A few companies also surrounded Mitti Kot, the mountainous terrain encircling Ahmed’s forces. Ahmed after surveying the battlefield had it flooded to encumber the attacking Khalsa forces. Headlong he fell into the elaborate trap planned by his foes, the Khalsa nerve-center had easily maneuvered it’s foe into the very position the latter had wanted to encumber the Khalsa in. On the days catalyzing in commencement of the battle a mujhaideen foolishly charged the Khalsa companies keeping him under surveillance. He became encumbered by the very mud which Ahmed had planned to annihilate the Khalsa opposition in. Khalsa snipers soon finished him off via their bullets. Realizing that his elaborate trap had been exposed, with the crack of dawn Ahmed ordered a headlong charge into the Khalsa forces. Discarding all caution the mujhaideen vainly charged the joyous Khalsa who readily clashed with it. Amongst cries of Allah, and Waheguru a bloody slaughter commenced in which the mujhaideen were rapidly dispatched to their resting regions. It is believed that 1300 mujhaideen blindly lost their lives that fateful day, with the Khalsa receiving only a few casualties. The first indigenous sub-continental jihad met it’s demise in a bloody fashion.  
    • The conspiracy stuff is fun but you tend to get drawn into rabbit holes that may have been setup as deliberate dead ends. An outsider who doesn't have any of the contacts and connections has no choice but to stick to observable phenomena as dull and unexciting as it may be. Even I still have my doubts about some of the loopy, dark tales and innuendo that I hear, because there's no actual way of proving any of it. Plus, there's always a danger of seeing a conspiracy where there isn't one. Losing touch with reality makes a person useless to any serious pursuit of the truth. The system may be rigged, but sometimes these devils do make mistakes, and that's the perfect opportunity to exploit those missteps.
    • ssp gobind ram was notorious for treating the wives and sisters of the singhs really bad, i dnt even want to write what he used to do to them.    This rapist is called a martyr on the punjab police website  he was blown up by karkhu singhs in his car       any1 know who blew him up?  cnt find the name ...
