On this forum and at all the place we hear sad stories of women in marital relationship. We hear as to their plight in the marital home and the trauma they describe- if true in even fraction of cases is heart rendering.
On the other hand there are numerous men who alleges that legal protection given to the women under indian laws are largely misused and abused in order to settle marital dispute and sometimes in order to extort money or property from the in laws. As it has been experienced in various developed society, people say that for a women getting divorce is the easiest method of getting rich.
If these allegations from both side is true, why do people marry? Has marriage become and outdated institution? Should society be looking at some other institution at the place of marriage?
