Marital problems are inevitable and couples everywhere have their own ways to settle any feud.
But one man decided to call for backup - quite literally - when he couldn't handle his domestic issues with his own wife.
Devbir Kalsi's parents flew all the way from India to Florida to help their 33-year-old son "counsel and discipline his wife for being disobedient", Fox News reported.
Silky Gaind, 33, was found "battered and bruised" at her marital home with Kalsi in Florida last Saturday (Sept 2).
The perpetrators, Jasbir Kalsi, 67, and his wife Bhupinder, 61, were arrested along with their son on that same day, according to media reports.
Police officers arrived at the Florida residence after the victim rang her own parents back in India to tell them that she had been assaulted, said The Sun.
Gaind was rescued along with her new baby by the police.
When the authorities arrived at the scene, the Kalsi family reportedly tried to block the entrance, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.
Gaind's husband had tried to keep the door closed but the police officer at the scene forced his way in. Seeing this, his parents confronted the officer, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
The victim was beaten "repeatedly and forcefully" by her husband, the report continued. After she started to defend herself, the elder couple also struck her, leaving large bruises all over her face and body.
At one point, Gaind's father-in-law allegedly held a knife to her throat.
The Kalsis could face deportation back to India, said The Sun.
They could also face charges of felony battery, aggravated battery with a knife, false imprisonment and child abuse, the Daily Mail reported.
