(Fatwa: 617/617/SD=11/1436)

A wife should only speak about her necessities to her husband. If a wife puts her demand in front of her family members while bypassing her husband then usually it creates difference and tension among the spouses. Hence the wife should not do so. However, if your in-laws give something to your wife on their own then you must not stop your wife to accept it.
