  • Giving preference to your friends over your wife is oppression.
  • Screaming and yelling at your wife is oppression.
  • Coming home late each night or coming to bed late each night without a valid excuse is oppression.
  • Wasting time on the internet or phone, television or games whilst your wife is waiting for you is oppression.
  • Not spending reasonable time with your wife is oppression.
  • Not commending her upon her goodness, sacrifice and achievements whilst only harping on her weaknesses is oppression. Be fair!
  • Not correcting her in the most loving manner and going around publicizing her errors or wrongdoings is oppression.
  • Not providing at least the basic food, clothing,  shelter and other basic needs for her is oppression.
