Sailesh Shah & Rajeev Kumar's replies are really appreciable.
But I doubt very much, how many people on this forum appreciate the neutral and professional suggestions made by you, because they are in neck deep in matrimonial disputes and they developed the habit of hating every woman except their own mother and sister during the course of time and times gone by, they are becoming madder day by day.
Let us see, how our system is unfairly treating the women-either it be mother, daughter, mother-in-law, daughter-in-law, sister or sister-in-law. Unilaterally, in the name of "tradition" it is decided (by whom? God knows, but not by courts), the husband's house is, for all practical purposes,s matrimonial home. Husband cannot leave his old age parents (I really appreciate this feeling and concern towards older generation by younger generation) but wife should leave her old age parents (even they are in dire need of her presence and her earnings) in the name of tradition. Now, immediate question raises in my mind that, qua husband, where thelove and concern goes away, when the matter pertains to old age parents-in-law. Often I see that there is a complaint from the side of husband that in-laws' interference ruined the family life. Never I saw any complaint from husband that his parents' interference also will be the cause of matrimonial distrubances. Same is the case, with the wife. Her contention is that her in-laws' interference is the cause of matrimonial disturbance and not her partents'.
The demand by the wife for separate house is in other words, there is interference of her in-laws' in matrimonial distrubances and to avoid it, she is demanding the separate house. If the husband has got objection to the interference of his inlaws in his matrimonial life, wife also shall be allowed to object the interference of her inlaws in her matrimonial life. It does not augur well for the husband sitting in his parental home and say loudly that his parents are not interfering in his marriage life, but wife's parents, who are sitting far away from matrimonial home, are interfering in his marriage life by continuous telephone talk.
Men should understand that they have not married robots, but a living human beings, who have been gradually becoming economically independent and are aspiring equality in every aspect of life. As and when it is understood, then there will be reduction in matrimonial disputes.
Being advocate, I am neither man's side nor woman's side, but seeing the rapid developments in social political and economic spheres of the Society, I try to understand the issues objectively unlike several members of this forum, who are effected by personal matrimonial problems and lost the capacity to decide the issues rationally.
