“Love, n. Temporary insanity curable by Marriage ” _ Ambrose Bierce (The Devil’s Dictionary )
One of the significant things that is set to change within 10 years from now on , will be the concept of marriage.
It’s not about whether it is right or wrong , it is about whether it works or not.
Surfing 12th September’s Hindu newspaper, I noted an article which stated ‘one of 5 men in India subjected their wives to physical abuse.’ I noticed the abuse, swearing and beating of women in this country. I was helpless. Not anymore. Unlike their counterparts in U.S or in Europe , women are repressed in this country . Just looking at the morning newspaper to read the news of gruesome rapes , shudders me.
In India, the concept of marriage is just a legal bonding , I understand , authorized by government to legalize sex. Bluntly speaking .
Photos of couples with fake smiles adore their walls . A pact , simply a pact between a couple : you suffer me , I suffer you.
Arrange Marriage ? are you living in 1736 ?
It just seems so ridiculous to me. You marry a guy/girl , you’ve never seen before.
How fucking ridiculous is that ?
Fathers loot the bank and send his daughter off. It’s pure business , the terms are , with a few pounds of gold , you get a girl FREEE !! Voila !
I believe marriages should never be a liability to anyone , One should leave their spouse when they wish to leave them , no strings attached . Our society is in the verge of ‘conscious evolution’ , it’s not how , it’s about when .
Ideas and opinions expressed here are purely personal , if there is any resemblance to any characters, it’s deliberate .
