Note: this question was originally about why a question got closed, but it is also about what close reasons were applied and why. I have edited the title to make this explicit. So kindly do not remove the close-reasons tag repeatedly from this question even if you disagree with its use here, unless you are a moderator. Also read the more detailed 'Note on close-reasons tag' at the end of this question.
Note 2: I am glad to see that the closed question referenced here has now been reopened within hours of closing because OP took the initiative to substantially re-word his question based on feedback from users. I applaud OP's demonstration of good faith and also greatly appreciate the integrity of the 4 close-voters who reopened this question after OP made those improvements by edit.
This is the attitude and maturity that will make this rapidly growing Interpersonal.SE a great site!
There is a specifically stated interpersonal conflict of opinion on this stated topic between OP and his wife. Remember that OP is probably not a native English speaker and he is basically trying to ask how he can resolve this interpersonal conflict betwern his wife's expectations and his own interests.
If the question was not clear enough then NVZ's edits especially to the title make the question crystal clear and it certainly looks very much on-topic, stating a specific interpersonal problem with adequate background information -- inspite of which NVZ (after making the question clearer by editing) and 4 others voted to close OP's question.
What close reasons were applied to vote closed this question?
Why did you think this is not the type of question that should be asked at this website?
We often cast close votes for different reasons and I have seen a question at ELU (dont remember which) closed officially as 'off-topic' which 'earned' 1 close vote for 'too broad', 1 vote for 'lack of research', 1 vote for 'primarily opinion based' and only 2 votes for 'off topic' but the reader will think 5 people agreed it was off topic!
So each close-voter might ideally post an answer to this meta question explaining their reason for close voting, so that users can better understand how the site works and what 'not' to post here.
Moreover I think this question is a proper and on-topic question for this site, even if users disagree with OP's point of view, and therefore needs to be reopened.
Note on 'close-reasons' tag:
I originally added 'close-reasons' tag because this question is also about close-reasons: about how close voters apply different close reasons while voting to close a question. 'Scope' tag added by another member already refers to whether OP's Q is on-topic. It is my observation that questions are sometimes closed for one reason and a different close-reason is unintentionally applied. Moreover the 5 close votes can have different close reasons only one of which appears on the closing banner.
AJ specifically opined in a comment that the question was 'too broad' while Bradley Wilson in his answer made the pertinent statement that "I voted to close this as off-topic when really I should have chosen 'unclear what you're asking'"
This is why I have retained this tag, after reading the guidelines for using the tag 'close-reasons'. Kindly do not remove it again unless a moderator insists on doing so.
