Hi doctor,

Three years ago, my sister got married. But, her marriage lasted only for one month. According to her, the boy was not physically and mentally fit. So, she came back to live with us. She was very mentally disturbed at that time. A few months back, her second marriage got fixed again, and the bridegroom is our relative that is, the son of my mother's brother. She got married a month ago. Now, she is getting depressed again. Everything is perfect with the boy and his family. But she is getting mentally ill day by day. She starts blaming herself for the failure of her first marriage and is getting depressed. We are not able to judge her behavior. Does she have any kind of mental problem? How to deal with this situation? She was perfectly alright just before the marriage. Please suggest.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • She may be getting recurrent attacks of depression since marriage is a huge stress and not all can bear that stress healthily.
  • Also, a previous failed marriage may be making her tense this time too and giving her flashbacks.
  • She may also end up judging this marriage from her past experience.
  • Hence, my suggestion to you is that please make her see a psychiatrist in office and get suggestions. Also, she may need counseling to handle this marriage better.
