There are enemies from among your spouses

When the spouse and the child undertake the actions of an enemy, then they are an enemy. There is no act more vile than coming between a slave and obedience [to his Creator].

 

O you who have believed, indeed, among your wives and your children are enemies to you, so beware of them. But if you pardon and overlook and forgive – then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

[Qur’aan 64:14 – Translation Sahih International]

 

The phrase من أزواجكم which Sahih International has translated as wives is general and includes both the husband and the wife.

The Verse is general and includes every sin a person commits because of his/her wife/husband or children.
