Re: What did i get myself into.
Your wife sounds really depressed, why not let her work and get out of the house. I did the not working thing for a few years and it drove me up the wall. It is difficult to become totally dependent on your H for money and social life too when you have always been independent.
Sounds like you are not really listening to her about what is bothering her. Not having ones own money is also a big issue for a woman who was used to being independent.
TBH you sound a little controlling, you seem to want to control finances, how you interact with her family, how she should spend, how she should behave, etc. Marriage is a partnership not a boss-subordinate relationship. Her flying off the handle at you is a sign that there is something wrong under the hood, sounds like alot of resentment and suppressed anger, she loves you but she resents you.
