My husband's best friend died mysteriously. He was his strong support system & more than a brother. He & my H shared same wavelength, especially when it comes to religion & superstition. They would go to different temples, meet with various saamiyaars, and try out on creative worship methods together. And i would always doubt whether they are seriously superstitious or being directed by someone else using their weakness. But i never considered them serious other than joking at their beliefs as they seemed harmless practices to me. Off late, I accidentally came to know this friend & his wife were very close to my PILs from the beginning. Besides that, they kept on brainwashing my H against me by portraying as if I am one arrogant lady, who doesn't respect her H or his side of the people. They teach him constantly as to how to tactfully divert me & detach me from my support system. Especially sending my mom away & breaking ties with my brother's family to break me down. And i knew my H danced as per their tunes all these while, including behaving unbelievably with my mom & others last year causing severe consequences at home. I was at the verge of sending my mom away & that broke both of our hearts back then. Thank God, we patched up, but i caught my H & his friend red handed when they discussed their plans together. Since then, I strictly ordered my H not to maintain contacts with this guy, hence he kept some distance. Upon knowing his death, we visited their home. There, we came to know mysterious news and they were beyond believable. He was diabetic, but his wife made him believe English medicine is not good for diabetes. So she introduced a nurse to him & later that nurse became one of their close allies. That nurse advised him to live separately from his mom to have mental peace & enjoy marital happiness with wife & kids which he accepted. Later she started giving him natural medicine daily. Took him to various temples & made him do poojas etc regularly. Within 6 months he apparently lost 3 million worth of money, a land, his bike & some documents to that lady & his wife too wholeheartedly agreed with his decisions. Then he developed a wound in his leg & it got infected in no time. But they did not see a doctor. As he worked from home these days, none of his friends or colleagues knew his status. 3 days back he got sepsis & died at home at the age of 40. When his wife took him to the hospital, hell broke lose as the doctor started doubting her & her statements. His mom & relatives fought for keeping them in the dark & all the money matter came to the light. His wife showed fingers at that nurse who is not to be seen there. They have 2 helpless young kids. The issue is, this woman - his wife started accusing me as a bad wife and giving me all the lectures on how to keep husband happy & respect him at that funeral. It was strange that she wasn't in shock or broken about this sudden death, but she teaches me life. And to my shock, she apparently knew everything that happened in our house, including our bedtime talks. She says her H & herself put their phone on speaker when they talk to my H. But my H refuses to have shared the details with them. Nevertheless, he seemed to have stood by her side when she accused me & accepted with her that he has been living in pain in this marriage & it was because of me. Though not directly, he did not stop her when she accused me. I was angry after this incident because of the fact that my H wasn't my side despite of me being with him throughout his thick & thin as his strongest support. He talks to me as if i am his guardian angel, but i knew he isn't emotionally connected to me these days. I saw his emotions when she talked for him & that was so real. When questioned he accepted that he was trapped by his parents & his friend's family by portraying an induced sorrow in his life. They made him believe he isn't happy & is trapped for the fact that i am strong, have a sound support system & career. Plus his male ego accepted this and worked with them against me to break me. So that he believed he can be the boss of this home. Off late, unknowingly he got trapped & started blindly following them. They in fact stole money from him, & controlled him yet he believed in them. Now that, he begs for my help saying he is unable to come out of this trap. Because for a moment he hates them for what they have done to him, but the next moment he feels for them & have contradicting emotions. As i have an upper hand in the family & he has been jobless/money less i think he acts or rather behaves helpless as this. But i don't wanna lose him, lose my marriage and lose my hard earned money mysteriously like that friend. I honesty do not trust him anymore. I doubt whether he uses his 6th sense these days or still in confusion. But i can sense his stress & emotional breakdown. He really feels for his parents as i can't trust them or let them in. But they have asked for it, and they have no remorse for losing us. Just that my H puts up a stressed show & it is frightening me. I can't let him lose unless he behaves like an adult. He can even spell out our bank & business secrets to our enemies without knowing what's their intention. He can perish like how his friend died out of sheer ignorance & superstitions. He can cause harm to my kids unknowingly & that can be a reason for me to submit myself to the enemies. So i am being careful here. I can't let my guard off simply just because he feels locked. What can i do?
