Hi, I have been married for 11 months now. I have a husband who is actually very good, but is highly inconsistent. He tells his mother everything which is actually not a problem if that lady can keep her mouth shut. My mil is an evil woman in the guise of a saint. She pretends to get along while she goes and complains to my husband. She wants everything updated to her.So she makes her daughter call or send some random messages like "Do you know what dinner today, etc" to my husband when we are at my parents place. She calls my husband without fail when we are at my parents place and then his whole reaction changes, he becomes stiff and there is always a fight because of her. Whenever I talk to her, she creates one problem or the other. The problem is my husband's actual response when I tell him something is way different from his next response which comes a day later after talking to his mother. Recently, we(my H and I) had gone for a movie with my parents. My mil had called my H and my H wanted me to talk to her. Since we were about to go inside the theatre and my mother was not able to stand for a long time, I grew impatient and snapped at him saying that I can't update everything to his mother. Another fight and I was under stress and lost sleep for two weeks and my periods got delayed. When checked with the doctor, he said chances of pregnancy/ miscarriage(due to the stress) was there. During this time, my husband was away on an office trip. I had gone to the doctor with my parents. I updated him after he came back. His initial response was that he was okay with anything(positive/negative/miscarriage) and that we have age, time, money and effort on our side and he hugged me. The next day after the test results turned negative also he was okay. But later that night, he taunted me saying that I am not able to pass one single test after speaking to his mother. When I fought with him saying that he is not supposed to talk to me like this, he said he was only joking. To top it, during the last two fights, he kept using foul language and I became so angry that I told him that I would leave him if he can't treat me properly. He refused to let me leave and I ended up hitting him. After this everything came back to normal. A few days later, I brought up the topic again. This time, I was patient and I told him that he is not supposed to talk jokingly or not jokingly like this to me. Also I have restricted my talks with mil as it destroys my peace of mind. My husband wants me to talk to his mil atleast once a week which I said no to because she is unnecessarily creating problems. My husband became angry and said I am supposed to talk respectfully about his mother when all I said was that talking to her creates problems. He is not ready to accept complaints about his mother at all and starts shouting. I left the room and went to the hall and was quietly watching a movie. It was 11 p.m and the doctor had advised me to go to bed at 9:45 p.m. So my husband came out and asked me to go to bed because I needed my sleep. I refused and he started pulling my arm and tried to drag me which I refused. I told him to leave me alone which he didn't and the lights went off because of power shortage. Then I felt a sharp pain in my hip and felt that he had kicked me which he kept denying. He keeps saying that he was actually trying to carry me and that it was his hand and not his feet. He said he is not the type of person to take his wife to doctor and then kicking her around on the other hand. I was so angry and was crying and asked him to get out of the room to which he said that I am torturing him and he doesn't know what else to do and left the room. Next day he kept ice pack, cooked food, etc. But he still keeps denying that he kicked me. There was no power when the whole incident happened and I really don't know what to do. Whenever talk about his mother comes, a fight arises. Otherwise, everything is peaceful and happy. He refuses to even acknowledge that problems arise when his mother comes into the picture and instead says that I take every small thing seriously. I feel that I seriously lack respect in this relationship. Please help.
