Harassment by wife

Hello all,

If a wife is mentally unstable and troubling or harrassing her husband. what is the best route to take to solve
the problem amicably. Wife does not understand that she has mental problem. She refuses to go to the psychologist. Under such circumstances what the husband can do. Is it advisable for the husband to complain to anyone about the harassment meted out to him. Does the law force a person to stay with the wife even if she is mentally unstable.

She refuses to go to the psychologist.

a psychologist in disguise will serve the purpose.


Does the law force a person to stay with the wife even if she is mentally unstable.

depends upon the extent and proofs of mental unstability.

Do not make a mountain out of ant hill, in every marital life there is alwys ups and down like daily bissines life. Better find a solution to the problems like Counselling as pointed out by my friend adv.rajeev(rajoo) Marriage means husband has his duty as much as wife has her part of duty that makes a Home.

Thank you everyone for your replies.

There is a limit to endurance also. If someone is not able to understand the problem
that they  then nothing can be done. Even the girls parents think there is no problem with her. If they resort to forcing the guy to stay with her and endure suicidal tendencies then it is wrong on the girl's part. No one is asking for divorce here. Aim is to find an amicable solution so that both can live peacefully.

Counselling suggestion was the first thing that was told to her. But she thinks she knows the problem and doesn't want any one else to interfere. She is not ready to listen to anyone. All her behavior was tolerated in the beginning and till now hoping that things will be alright. She has harassed physically and mentally the guy  too wherein carrying out day to day activities also has become unmanageable.

In this I like to state that defeat is a state of mind. It is your perception that yopu can not solve this problem - here lies the defeat. Please don't be dishartened. Please don't loose patience. Marriage is a friendship between two souls.  in this relationship of friendliness, there is no question of give and take. Please try to undertand that you wife was not mentally unstable when she was born. This society where you and your wife belongs, has made her mentally unstable.

I saw a movie where the wife is mentally unstable and even tried to kill her husband. But the husband with his love and affection helped the lady ( her wife) to come out of mental trauma and then the lady became quite normal. So far, I can remember, the name of the movie is"Chahhat".

I am certain your wife will be normal with your love and affection. only you will have to show little bit more perseverance.

Please try to admit it your failure if you can not convince your wife to go to a doctor. try to find out your shortcomings in failing to convince your wife. 


इस प्रकरण में शादी को कितना समय हुआ है, स्पष्ट नहीं है। लड़की के माता-पिता कोई लड़की में कोई प्राब्लम नहीं बता रहे। संभवतः घर में लाड़-प्यार के कारण उस लड़की में जिद्दीपन के कारण यह समस्या उत्पन्न हो रही है। यह समस्या पारिवारिक स्तर पर सुलझाई जा सकती है। भारत में यदि लड़की नौकरी नहीं कर रही होती, तो उसे घर-परिवार या अकेले में रहकर उस परिवार में, यहां तक कि पति के साथ भी एडजस्ट करने में समय लगता है। लड़के को भी चाहिये कि वह उसे समझने की कोशिश करे। और जहां तक तलाक का प्रश्न है, यदि लड़के के पास पर्याप्त सबूत/आधार हैं तो वह अंतिम विकल्प के रूप में किसी अच्छे अधिवक्ता से परामर्श कर सकता है।
