Question: I would like to know what is permissible and impermissible for a wife to say about her husband to another sister. Is she allowed to talk about his personality (in a good manner) about her husband and his piety to other sisters? What are actions of a wife that are dislikeable to a husband?
Answer: It is upon a wife to mention her husband's piety, to mention his good acts, to mention how he always practices what is obligatory upon him, and everything good about him, including his manners. However, it is upon her to conceal everything that he hates to be mentioned about him, including his shortcomings. And concerning his shortcomings she is to advise him, as to what he is able to fulfill. As for speaking about sexual relationships and the like then it is not permissible for her to speak about her husband in such a manner.
