Re: How to make his see sense!? This is news to me !! Frankly, all this while I was assuming her to be a widow, and that's why staying with you :bonk I like SilverTulip's advice. From your description of her, she really looks in some kind of unbalanced state of mind. Treat her like one. Keep on telling your husband how she needs treatment. In fact, I really feel he is not at all a good son if he keeps on ignoring her behavior. She stays alone the whole day. God knows what she will fill up in her head. She is only verbally abusive now. She can turn physical too. What if she tries to hurt herself? Drill it into his head, until he feels guilty about his impotence and starts considering a medical intervention in your house. Spread the word. Tell the neighbors to keep a look at her during day time. You may feel its all very manipulative and I'm telling something grossly melodramatic. But look at her from a detached point of view (or tell it to a doctor) and even you will agree that she needs help. It should be easier for you to accept at least, if not your husband. Try your utmost to convince him that you are only wishing the best.
