I am going through a divorce. How Indians react to it? “Oh my God, what happened, you are a girl, you must adjust with your husband, your life is ruined, your husband has nothing to lose, it is you. Your life is finished.” This is just a trailer of dialogues I have been hearing and I don’t know how long will I continue to hear it.
I feel sad that I live in such a society where still they see that it is a girl who is losing everything. Why our Indian society can’t see it as a ‘blessing in disguise’. Do I deserve to live with someone who slaps me, harass me, abuses me and my parents and demands money from them?
If a guy who is going through a divorce can have second marriage, why can’t a girl can move ahead in her life. Why marriage is the ultimate destination for an Indian girl. As if every Indian girl’s life ultimate life purpose is to get married and to live on her husband’s money. Then, listen to his sarcastic remarks that her wife just sits home and do nothing. I wonder, then who cooks, cleans, and do the household chores of his house.
No matter how much our society is getting educated, but the literacy of the mind is to the lowest level. What was the point of sending your kids to studying in America, or any other country when his thoughts are so disgusting. A girl or a woman is not a subject/object to discriminate.
Why is divorce is a big deal? I think the well-wishers should be happy that my life got saved. When my husband can try to push me from the patio from the top floor. Was it safe for me to live with him any further? How others react to it? “Of course, he is your husband, you should try working out with him, cook him good food, he will stay happy with you and will not beat you.” If good food can change someone’s cruel behavior, I am sure the Indian jails would start hiring chefs from around the world to change their brutal behavior of the prisoners.
Who give anyone rights to comment about my relationship status?
