Blissful Married Life and What Spoils It

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Family life doesn’t become difficult [when] both spouses are aware of [each other’s] rights and obligations; and [living in] harmony isn’t hard [when] there’s mutual understanding; cold treatment doesn’t come about [when there’s] conversation [and discussion].

So a husband [should be there] with his wisdom, good dealings, support, and management; and a wife, with her giving freely [of herself] in response [to his need for her], her fulfilling [his wishes] properly, her care and attention.

Then if something goes wrong with that, the relationship becomes troubled, and the situation changes.
