Hi All, There was a discussion in my house on ladies opting out of the wedlock. I know a family of sisters whose Daughters in law have all filed for divorce.All of them have asked for a heavy compensation amount. They all have walked out of the husbands home within a month, a week or within a couple of years max. All of the ladies are married off to either doctors or engineers working out of India. They have all experssed distrust and indifferent treatment from their respective husbands. They all have produced a long list - big number of reasons supporting their stand,where as the guys' side complaints of the DILs lacking respect or behavioral etiquette ( like not sitting cross legged in front of inlaws, having snacks got from outside before doing pooja - etc ) In all the cases marriage expenses have been borne by the girls' side.All the ladies are firm in getting divorced and my MIL after hearing her friends fellow MIL's side story feels that the educated working ladies of current age are greedy for money and they have all just married for financial gains and now that all their husbands are trying working abroad they are all trying to fleece from them. To my horror this MIL club is accusing the mother of all the DILs for standing by their daughters and suspecting them as the major cause of all the splits. All the girls have claimed for bulk compensations [ 25L - 35L] and the guys side are speaking total rot of the girls. I am no way connected to any of them,( my dh's family's friends) but when discussions happen at my home on those ppl, I tend to take the DILs stand and try to find out the reason from the girls shoes which eventually gets a bad impression on me from my MIL. In fact at times even I get irritated with the continuous DIL criticisims, though I know for sure that MIL does not have anything of them for me , I am some how uncomfortable hearing these repeated criticism on those girls who have left their families. What could have gone wrong with all the families that the girls are not able to sustain there for more than 30 months max? Please help dear friends - as some day If i happen to meet any of those DILs I would like to do the best i could to make their relationships better.
