Hello ladies My name is Rohan. A guy writing on this forum might be strange. I am writing here with the hope of getting some much needed advice on my marital life. I have no sisters, been to a boy's school, engineering, then onto a male dominated workplace and no female friends either. So you get the picture, no real interaction with a female before marriage. And the thing is while I used to consider myself a smart guy who can deal with any tough situation with men, I find myself incapable of handling my wife. I am 29 and my wife is 26, we got married 8 months ago. It was an arranged marriage. My wife is short tempered and rude. She snaps ever so often if things don't go the way she wants it. I have tried to remain silent through her temper outbursts, argue/shout back, tried to calm her with soothing words, telling her marriage will not work out like this-but nothing works. Everything has to go her way. She is rude to my parents, who actually used to look at her as a daughter as they have none. Things have gotten so bad that today my parents are nervous about visiting us. (We live seperately from my parents but near by to them). I tried talking to her parents but it was of zero help. "She is like this only, we keep quiet when she gets angry and rages, she will calm down after sometime." This behavior I definitely was not told about before marriage! Her father thinks of her as a princess who can do no wrong. When I appealed to him to talk to my wife, he instead tells me in her presence " She is like Goddess Lakshmi to me, ever since she was born our family prosperity has only increased. I never consider anything I buy for her as expenditure but as daan to Goddess in temple!!" Since this incident, if I tell my wife "No" to anything she retorts that even her father has never ever said "No" to her for anything and if he ever did, she would go ahead and do exactly that. I am feeling miserable and depressed. My work is suffering because of this. I spoke to a few friends (guys) but could not get any useful advice. Please help me. Thanks.
