Dear friends, My nephew got married 6 months ago. Both are from different cities.Both happen to be hearing impaired and use sign language for their interaction. But my nephew is better at conversing with outside world as he went through speech therapy from childhood. To my knowledge, the marriage was not thrust upon on any of them. From the outset, things appeared great and everyone was happy for the couple and parents since they managed to find a partner despite their challenges. About the boy - I know him from childhood and has been raised by a working mother. So he is trained to handle household work and is quite soft spoken. He works in a corporate although it is a low paying job. Parents are decent and are non interfering. My cousin brother's wife is a capable person and has dealt through many challenges of her own life. She is outspoken and bold in nature. Father is a gentleman and cares only for son's life. About the girl - When I met her, she appeared friendly and wasn't shy in nature. Parents were fine too. Now the issue is the girl does not want to be with in laws and she wants to go back to her own place with my nephew. I can guarantee that there must not have been any abuse by my cousin brother or his wife. She seems to be egoistic and adamant in nature. She wants my nephew to cut contacts with his parents and be with her separately. She has even beaten him during an occasion. She doesn't have any respect for her inlaws and has insulted them many times. In the last few months of marriage, she has often travelled to her parent's house and no one objected. She has anger issues and threatens my nephew that she will leave him and go. At present, she is not with the boy's family and is in her home town. My sis in law has approached marriage counsellor and psychologist and sought their advice. The counsellor wants to meet up both parents and the couple. Boy's family is ready for meeting counsellor whereas the girl is refusing to come. My sister has firmly conveyed to her parents that the next step required in counselling. Differences between the couple Since boy and girl are from different cities, they don't each other's local language. They know English although the girl is not fluent in English. She was working before marriage now she is not interested in working. My gut feel is she wants to go back to her comfort zone But my nephew cannot relocate because he has a low paying job and needs family's monetary support. Also he needs a familiar and supportive office environment as he needs his coworkers help to complete his work as he has physical limitations. Quite traumatic for the family to deal with this. your thoughts?
