Dear sister , indeed your situation is sad and tricky... It is strange why your husband does not allow you to meet you parents.... This is indeed a grave sin of not allowing wife to meet their parents. Allah told us all to be kind to their parents.

If you are in the same town, it is your right to visit them (or them visit you, for a 'reasonable visit') once a week. Your husband does not have the right to stop you in this. [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar; Ibn al-Humam, Fath al-Qadir]

Note, however, that the way to deal with marital problems is not law but love: when it comes down to law, with each sticking to millimetric measurement of their rights, marriages fail, as rarely does any love and affection remain.

With love, even major differences become minor.
