My wife and i are going through some things and hasn't been living together for about15 months, on and off, but the problem is that her family is to much involved and because she's the baby in the family they tend to control her. We were renting her parents place but her mother came and put me out even though at the time my wife didnt agree with her. Since then neither myself nor my wife has been living in their house but her sister, who's hunband put her out is in the house and my wife is in PE, by her parents. All our belongings we left in the house and even though my wife and i reached an agreement as to what i can take, her sister refuses to give it and thats not to mention the stuff that belonged to me that went missing...things such as electrical tools, welding machine, wood and boards well over the value of about R6000 and a lot of other small things. Two days ago i spoke to my wife and asked her again if I'm ever gonna get my things. She replied, go fetch it, but i asked her to notify her sister that I'll be fetching my things and to let me know once she spoke to her sister. The next day she said her sister says i can get it when she moves, which i dont agree with as nothing in that house belongs to her. She came there with only her clothes. I've got the message my wife sent saying i must go fetch my stuff...is that enough to use as proof to get my things and what can i do about my other stuff that went missing.
