Discussion in 'Life Without Spouse' started by Thyagarajan, May 28, 2023.
Dear Thyagarajan Sir,
This has been a major issue in the United States for fairly long time. Because of such jurisprudence exists in the US, there are thousands of American women are exploiting this to their advantage. There is considerable amount of reluctance by the American men to commit to a marriage and they continue many years outside the wedlock. Even prenuptal agreements are of no use due to many state laws overruling such agreements. Of course, there are genuine women who deserve such laws so that men who commit adultery and transfer their assets to women outside the wedlock can restore some wealth for the benefit of their children. I have come across a few cases of men claiming benefits from a rich wife as well. In the US, things have moved from 50% of weddings resulting in divorce to singles reluctant to commit to a wedding.
Note: Father of a famous celebrity claimed the wealth enjoyed by her as she was a minor under the pretext of managing her wealth. He literally controled her life for a fairly long period of time even after she turned 18. Later she had to file a complaint to the court to releive herself from the paternal control.
Thanks for the response. I presume the women of USA ARE at higher pedestal vis a vis Indian women. Educated Indian women many are in wedlock doldrums .
Right now there is a serial on suntv 9.30 to 10pm called எதிர் நீச்சல்-upstream - centering around joint family patriarchal & 4 sils.
All Dils are engineers confined to Madurai kitchen but the youngest rebels and bring about changes in her divorced hubby and other 3 DILs. Interesting dialogues written by a lady.
