hi, read through the whole story and all comments.....I know i will earn a lot of brickbats for this but all I can say is instead of blaming everyone I would blame Sweety... her diary entries prior to marriage reflects the feeling of an infatuated teenager and not of a woman who was getting married. Her whole idea of marriage and life from her diary entries reflected the "Serial/movie" story of a marriage and not reality seen around. She was not ready for marriage.There were a lot of red flags mentioned. She chose to overlook it and not bring it to her family's notice like the guy acting weird and not putting her foot down to audacious demands of her il's. Secondly, giving a moments benefit of doubt to the guy, he might have realized a similar suicide scene would have happened if he decided to call off the wedding. The lady once she realized that there is a third person in the marriage should have tried to talk to husband and evaluated status of her marriage and decided to move on/divorce her husband and get on with her life. Poor Sweety lacked that confidence to reclaim her life . Again as others said it is a by product of being drilled that being married is the be all and end all of all our lives. Had she known that there were other options she would have taken it whether her parents were there or not. now the husband: A coward who was manipulated by his parents. When will parents stop the hospitalization drama to get adult children dance to their tunes?to be fair to him, He on realizing that the whole wedding sham is adding pressure to his life decided to opt out of it. Now as many posters commented if the other lady/he stopped the affair because of the " getting married " funda and the man stays married with this woman, will the man/marriage be happy in the long run? to the man she will always be the girl the parents foisted on his head. and the lady will always know that though he is faithful he does not love her/sees her as a partner. The bitterness would seep into that marriage day by day. A separation would ensure that they both could get their happiness back. His happiness is also overlooked by everyone including himself when he enterd into this marriage. EMA/no EMA this marriage was doomed from day 1 just because one party was not mentally ready and the other one was least intrested. Indian parents should focus on teaching kids life skills and self support rather than teach that the goal of life is getting married.And also repeated statements of responsibility over would have also made the lady from telling her parents her trouble. All she needed was some hope in life. even if her parents brought her back to their place for some time all this could have been averted. I read somewhere that EMA(not by serial lovers) is the last sign that there is something seriously wrong in a relationship.it is one partner searching for what they wanted from the other. Only very few people in the arranged marriage scenario get to evalutae whether the partner is all what they looked for in life and others try to find happiness in what they got. it is when you had enough of finding happiness in your partners that all drama begins.
