I was so depressed and was wondering where my life took a u turn. Best years are till college then its all a big mess. I dont know if i’m right or wrong need somebody to tell me. Like hundreds of women I did fall in love and as usual my parents din’t agree. finally an arranged forced marriage which i could’nt accept ended in a divorce in a year. Nearly 7 years i stayed at parents place went through a lot of mental abuse for being a divorcee. Then got married again, my brother felt i was a disturbance in his life, working was out of question for a divorcee without a male companion we women are nothing is what they think. The man i married wanted a doormat, a servant, I tried to accept this, on everyones insistance even had a child. i can no more live with this man, he’s not intrested in the child, refuses to practice, he’s professionally qualified. wants to laze around, his father’s a millionaire, thinks he can live off his dad. I am sick of this relationship. I want to leave him. What should I do, will it affect my child who does not understand the meaning of the word daddy, calls his dad uncle. he will be 4 soon, yet to start school, my mom is also in a difficult relationship. I have no support in my parental side, but I m financially independant. Please advice.

This email reminded me of,
And this is the kind of life the 36 Biradari Panchayats, Khap Panchayats, the Acid- throwing Misogynistic gangs in all parts of India (and all those who support these gangs), would like to see Indian women live. A life without any say in what is decided for them.
What advice can the email writer expect from those whose mindsets give silent support to the above mentioned gangs and Saas-Bahu serials?
What would you say to the email writer?
