wife salary account was zero before marriage, we both worked in same campus before marraige, it's an arranged marraige, so before marriage we used to meet and discuss about our families, so in that closeliness she borrowed some amount from me saying she is out of money and she need some repairs to be done to her house in her native place, so i transferred some amount to her account , later after marriages she used to transfer salary to my account saying she forgot her ATM card in her hometown, and every single rupee spent for my both livelehood was spent from my account, i had proof of my creditcards, and house rent agreement on my name. when ever she want money she used to take as cash from me, i didn't realized her cruel instincts behind that duirng that time..
