That is their current state of the relationship.

In fact, it is all complaints and instructions for him from her. Three Separations by Israel Shur starts with quite an intense mode between the two. The differences between the two are on a widening spree. In fact, the author is able to reflect it quite interestingly and crisply with an instance of coffee and toast. That, in fact, is crisp enough to reflect the actual state of confliction between the two. In fact, what I feel is Udi has become too edgy in that regard while his wife is behaving normally. Probably he is the one trying to find faults in whatever she does. Maybe he is losing confidence in himself and institution of marriage.
