I am sure many women in India might be thinking the same (in some cases men too) . But they dont have the courage to do so due to social pressure and fear of unknown. The are expected to sacrifice their life for others ( dh, PILS, kids, their prestige). The bold and courageous Mrs M had the advantage that she lives in USA and don't have to think about the so called 'society' much. Sometimes "you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have." It is still a herculean task for an Indian women to walk out of marriage, even if she educated, independent or strong.
