Hi! I wonder if we can find such a slang term, metaphor or idiom in each language, to describe an over-demanding, fierce wife? Chinese (PRC Mandarin): 母老虎 Literal meaning: tigress A Chinese idiom: 河东狮吼 Literal meaning: Lion roaring at river's east Explanation: An famous ancient poet first said this. "A lion's roar" was originally a Buddhist metaphor. The poet used it to mock that the wife of his friend was shouting at him from their residence.
