Comparative analysis of the Latvian, Russian, Belorussian, and Polish songs about the hostile relations between a husband offending his young wife and her brother-defender present a special interest for the studies on ethno-psychology of the above-mentioned nationalities, and on the methods of folkloristic comparisons. The main difference between the Latvian and west-slavic songs consists in 'showing' a behavior of the brother–defender towards the husband offending his young wife. The Latvian brother is ready to teach the husband a good lesson with his sword but does not realize his theat, because afterwards there will be no one to feed his sister. The Russian brother does not also think about the bloody massacre. On the contrary he persuades the sister to reconcile with her husband and be pacient. By the way, who does not beat his wife from time to time? In the Polish songs the husband apologises and swears not to offend his wife any more.
