@Viswamitra probably the husband in this scenario just wants no conflict and peace at any cost. This is what most of the husbands are like. Now don’t say ‘What do you mean? I’m not like that!’ Yes we know you are 1 in a million and aunty is very lucky lady but not everyone is like you As for regressive practices - we are seeing a huge mandate for regressive practices and governments all over the world. It is no longer true as it used to be in my youth that forward movement of time constitutes progress and modernization. Look at plight of Iraqi women pee and post invasion, afghan women pre and post Taliban. Look at India and look at post Roe America. Slowly these forgotten barbaric practices are creeping out of backrooms and brazenly walking in the streets.
