Girls have to adjust the most in an Indian marriage set up. I specifically mention Indian marriage because the girls have to live with the groom’s family & adapt completely to their lifestyle, culture, eating habits, social habits and so much more.
Thoughts Before Marriage
I was contemplating the scenario with my new family with regards to the fiercely independent streak I have. Born & brought up in India I have grown up seeing ladies (read married women) compromise so much on their basic independence. Sometimes I feel is it really the typical male dominance in this country that makes these women tolerate and stay happy or is it simply a matter of personal choice…
I had made up my mind I would never let my honest (brutally honest actually), frank behaviour be suppressed by either my husband or in-laws. Little did I know what situations & events would come my way and that I will have to alter my ways.
Troubled Marriage Experiences
This is making me think today about all the working & independent girls who quit their jobs, leave their homes to start a new life only to find something amiss in their marriage. A relationship should bring a sense of security and no threat from either the person directly related to you or the associates.
Independence of a human being is a basic requirement & that should be untouched in any relationship. What is it that makes women adjust to their wanting marriages?
