Women are financially independent(Reasons for divorce in India)

  • These days’ women are becoming financially independent in India. Earlier females were not well educated and employed, so they had to depend on their husbands for various necessities of life after marriage. In such cases, some husbands used to torture or dominate their wives for various reasons (such as demanding dowry or others) because they knew that their wives would do nothing but suffer. In such cases, the wives did not dare to go for a divorce and had no other option to meet the basic needs of life. 
  • But the situation has changed a lot in the last few years. Now parents are showing interest in their daughters’ education and encouraging them to go to some jobs or employment after completing their education so that they depend on their husband or someone else for their financial needs or their livelihood don’t have to be after marriage. In such a case a woman can easily rebel against her husband and in-laws in case of any atrocities. For a woman, her first husband today is her job or employment and her education.

Mother-in-law or daughter-in-law conflict or traditional ‘mother-in-law conflict’(Reasons for divorce in India)

  • Another reason behind married life problems or family life problems in countries of the Indian subcontinent is the mistreatment of a married woman with her mother-in-law or / sister-in-law, which also affects the husband-wife relationship many times. Most newly married girls do not know how to cook or if they know they do not get the time to do it because of their jobs, which their mother-in-law does not like and which leads to conflict. In some cases, the mother-in-law develops a feeling of insecurity after her son’s marriage that her daughter-in-law will someday snatch her son which creates a feeling of insecurity in the mother-in-law and she starts behaving negatively with the daughter-in-law. In some cases, it has been observed that mother-in-law is also not good and she is a very low tempered or dominating woman.
  • In such conflicts these days, the daughter-in-law usually goes back to her parents’ house and forces her husband to start as soon as possible to live separately from her parents, and only then she returns to live with him. In such cases, if the husband goes according to his wife’s wishes then the married life is saved but if he rebels his wife then the married life is broken. Such conditions are a major problem for many Indian men. Internally many men do not want to leave their parents in their old age, but on the other hand, the wife and children or children who are born with their marriage also become necessary. In such situations, some men do not want to leave their parents because of the fear that if they leave their parents they will not be able to get their share in the paternal property so easily.
