Leaving one's wife and kids and staying with one's mother

Q: Is it right for a husband to leave his wife and kids and go stay with his mother even though they all live in the same yard? My father in law fell sick recently and was admitted in hospital so my husband didn't want to leave his mother alone to stay the night but he could leave his wife and kids to stay alone.

A: Apparently it seems that this was at the time of need when he had to be giving some confidence and comfort to his mother. It is not right for you to become over possessive.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
