I am 32 years male and having mental torture within 4 months of marriage and my wife does not listen to me at all from 5th day onwards. Always calling her father and exposing all details of our family including bank accounts, property details and salary details, etc personal relatives and contacts. Not willing to leave the house and video recording for what I discuss with my friends or parents or relatives which is getting used to fabricate situations and words accordingly. She is also involved recently in dragging me to police station after she only bite me.
