My Nephew went through the same thing with his Dad, but it has only lasted a few months. very much a phase. Children are always testing the boundaries, they want to know where they stand and they'll feel safe within those boundaries. Just stick with it and don't take it personally. I'm sure your wife didn't take it personally that for the first 2months all kid X did was scream when she was hungry and sleep, no smiles or anything. Kids don't have communication down pat just yet.
