One year after his marriage, a conflict arose between him and his wife, Maria. Jean Bosco’s perception was that he is the only decision maker in his household while his wife has not a word to say as she was not generating income. He used to come home late every night, he kept drinking until midnight and came home in a very bad mood, threatening everybody. He did not support his household financially as they had no value for him. After few years, he ended up leaving his wife seeking for another wife who is capable to take better care for him.
