Hi Writer, thank you for writing in. It takes great courage to reach out for help.

It seems that you are facing difficulty in your marriage. You are having to face a lot of fights with your wife.s. Your wife has OCD that is causing most of the reasons for her issues with your parents. You wish she would be more understanding when reasonably necessary. I understand that it must be a difficult position for you to be in managing both your parents and your wife.

Firstly, I would appreciate the courage in you for being able to manage so far. I can only imagine how difficult a situation this must be for you, now with a young child in the picture.
Could you tell me a little bit about yourself and your wife as individuals?
Was your wife diagnosed having OCD by a clinical professional? Is she taking any medication for the same?
Answering these questions will help me understand your situation better and enable me to guide you accordingly.

Secondly, how would you like me to help you with your situation? What is it that you are hoping to seek through this counselling process?

Please respond back to continue our discussion. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Warm regards.
