My wife hardly stays with me what should I do My wife hardly stays with me what should I do

1 month ago

Our marriage is a love marriage, got married in the year 2019, after marriage we stayed together for around 3-4 months, afterwards slowly she started staying with her family (with her Atya and younger sister). Her concern was on the distance to travel and on the safety for it. I was like ok on problem, we'll look for a home in city are.

2020 COVID 19 lockdown, she was staying at her family's place and I was visiting her place during the relaxation period of lockdown. Well our houses were around 13- 14 kms, she is staying in city are and I was staying in a village area, though I was having a owned 2bhk flat in a good society, and was staying with my mother, my father passed away in 2017.

Later after the COVID 19 lockdown situation as uplifted, as we had decided we started looking for multiple homes in city area, after searching we got a 2bhk home in a good area and shifted there.
Now the distance from each other homes were just 4.5 kms, a huge travel time cut down and not safety issues as we were in city area.

Now here we started staying together, but every weekend she started staying at her own house, and sometime she used to extend stay her stay by a day, on questing her on her weekend stays there she was like I wasn't to spend the time with them. Due to our working hours we used to come home around 9:30 10:00 PM. Such tings continued, and I was like ok fine.

After her delivery she has decreased staying her with us saying, she stays with us only for a day that to after my working hrs i.e. picking her at from her place at 8:00 - 8:30 PM and next day dropping her at 8:00 AM, such things are in still continues. I miss my daughter's childhood, her presence.

For this I told her we can keep a caretaker for my daughter during our absence and my mother will also be there to look after. But she was like no we don't want caretaker because of their bad influence and could get attached to the caretaker, and if we have a senior person a our home why should third person get involved into it, she stated. I told I agree with it but the thing is how her atya takes care of our daughter my mother will find it difficult to do so due to her ankle surgery and her age factor.

In addition yes there is the compatibility issues between my mother and my wife.

So is the situation, please guide me what should I do.

A.Dear Client,
In the given circumstances, a counseling session for both of you with an expert family counselor plays a potential role in resolving the issues amicably, failing which you may think of legal remedies available under the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 to resolve the matter permanently forever. So, decide your steps wisely and not emotionally.

A.Dear Client,
You can try to discuss the issues and concerns about the relationship with your wife and express your willingness to spend time with your daughter. You can also seek the assistance of a family counselor to resolve the issues. It is advisable you solve the matter amicably. Further, if the matter escalates, you can file a suit for restitution of conjugal rights under section 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act and seek co-habitation.
Hope it helps.
Thank you.

A.Dear Sir,
First decide has to whether to continue the marriage or end it. Then file a divorce case and if you give some alimony then your wife may agree for mutual divorce. Forget about the child if any and start new life.
