This is an article from 2002. Shows the perspective of divorce viewed from the side of women. All it talks about is getting the money from the man and discovering his assets. Here is an excerpt:
“A marriage is a partnership, with equal rights and responsibilities. If it must end, it must end as equally. So far, the law has not done too great a job of upholding the woman’s rights. If the woman is not to walk out a pauper from the marriage, it is up to her and up to the man to ensure that financial planning is made a joint affair.
India still hasn’t reached the stage of pre-nuptial settlements. In fact, it is guilty of the other extreme–of imagining that discussing financial distribution between the couple is itself taboo. Which makes it all the more important for women–in good marriages or bad–to take charge of their financial lives and learn to protect their interests.“
I wonder why the Express didn’t publish it as she was a columnist for them. A possible answer is that they won’t publish this kind of crap.
The radical feminists of India will do all they can to sell their agenda. Quite a few of them are divorced.
What they will never reveal is the loneliness and bitterness some of these divorced women experience.
Since this is an article about the finances of divorced women, I present an article by the LA Times which did a study on the finances of divorced women. The financial state of divorced women in the US is not the eutopia as claimed in this article by Monika Halan.
Here is the LA Times article: LATimes study on the financial status of divorced women.
Moving away from finances to the causes of divorce, here is the reality that Indian men are facing. Read the story of the 498A woman to understand what men across the nation are facing. Domestic violence perpetuated by women at their worst.
