Hi All, I am going through a rough phase in my married life(arranged) . It has been so since the time I got married 2 years back. I have adjusted a lot, forgiven a lot, let go a lot of stuff. My inlaws (I live with them) and husband have not been forthcoming in solving the issues. Sometimes I feel, I should have more guts and I should be able to, not bend to their pressures. Somehow I want to maintain the peace in the house and have been on the receiving end . I have tried to explain to my husband, he would say ok I am sorry and continue with the same thing. I have not retorted back to my inlaws, for I feel that would increase the troubles. I am financially independent and will have the support of my parents if I decide to quit (they would not be happy but they would support me). Being a small town, middle class girl, divorce is still a sort of taboo. But there are times when I am so tired and fedup that I would like to evaluate that option. I know there will be lots of people who would say that I should stay back and make the marriage work. Also some would say it is better to be alone than be miserable in married life. The good thing is we don't have kids to complicate the situation. I don't think having a kid would solve the issues. I would like to have a kid when I am sort of settled with the father not before that. I am not saying I am ready to quit. But I would like to know about all the problems a girl faces in India, during and post divorce. I don't have younger siblings whose marriage might be jeopardised. I would like people to share their experiences and views about this matter from all perspectives (financial, emotional, society, old age) Regards, Arini.
