This paper tries to portray and investigate the private problems faced by the main character in connection with her husband and her clients since performing consultation and forward. Jodi's great gift is her silence, and he has always loved this about her, but silence is also her weapon. The woman who refuses to object, who doesn't yell and scream, and there is strength in that, and power, and sadly her last. In this contemporary psychoanalysis I not only discuss the desire to preserve but also the concentrate on the foundation of classical psychoanalysis. So, I would reflect on qualitative descriptive method and relate it to psychoanalysis in general, especially Lacanian psychoanalysis. The result is The Silent Wife has been described as “a gripping story of deception.” But both parties start out knowing exactly what’s going on, and the identity of the true clueless victim is far from predictable. It’s an impressive debut from a talented new voice.
