mAye-ye badbakhti
Explanation:
It should be an idiom.
It seems to me that the husband is complaining against his wife and calls her as a faulty line in his life. I found the following sentence in a short story.

'A crack in the ceiling, he thought, just another erratic happening, one of the many conspiring against me.'
