My wife is staying with her mother, in her maternal house. We have a children. What can be the possible reasons?. She is working. Never gave her salary home. She was always watching the serials in the evening. Even cooking was a problem. I don't booze, smoke, have any illicit affair, bad habits, etc.. Friends & well wishers suggested me that my motherin law is trying to control me through her daughter. Her influence is very much on her daughter, i.e. my wife. What can be other possible reasons for her not living with me. Somebody even suggested me that they want me to burn down like a candle.
