My mother is not obeying my father. However my father has neglected his responsibility. She has taken up his duties. I want them to have the best. What should I do?
One of the rights of the husband over the wife is that she is obliged to obey him. One of the rights of the wife over her husband is that he should spend on her. The wisdom behind the obligation upon him of spending on her is that the woman is tied to the husband by virtue of the marriage contract, and she is not allowed to go out of the marital home to earn a living except with his permission. The husband has failed to give his wife her rights of maintenance, and the wife has failed to be obedient. Advise both of them wisely and gently.
