As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Your brothers marriage is young and it is normal for such marriages to experience turbulence before the marriage eventually settles down. We understand his pain and emotions. We advise that he seek assistance from Allah Ta`ala who has control over each and every thing. Make sabar and focus on making adjustments in the marriage.
We all have shortcomings. Therefore, try and overlook each other’s shortcomings. Let him remind his wife that a family is built on love and care amongst its members. If the married couple is living with their parents, it may be advisable for them to live separate.
You state she is conceiving with her first child. Make dua that this will bring about a change and unite the family. Your brother should not be stopped to speak to his wife rather he should be encouraged to bring amends in his marriage for the betterment of their future child.
It may be advisable that a respected member of both families sit with the married couple parents and advices them in a diplomatic manner that they limit their interference in their marriage.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
