Value your wife. She is a blessing. She saves you from sins. Think of the people who disgrace themselves by visiting females of bad fame. She is born of the crooked bone so bear the trouble she gives you with cheerful attitude. Once children are born even those troubles that wives usually give disappear. Those who bear the pain given by the troubles given their wives will get the reward of the patience of Hazrat Ayyub (AS). Wife is not a slave, not even a servant. Her title is that of life partner. Deliver her rights and do so while delivering the rights of your parents. Even the father-in-law and mother-in-law should think of the daughter-in-law as a daughter. This will reduce the troubles in the family.
