Sold?

All her life she had to seek permission from family before undertaking something or making a decision. And now she was getting married.

She asked whether she would be allowed to work after marriage too. The answer was, “That is for your husband to decide”.

All her life she is dominated by someone. For one part by her parents and family and for another by husband and in-laws. Why cannot she be treated autonomous?

In a marriage both partners hold equal responsibility. It is not fair for only one partner to take all the burden and responsibility on oneself. Then why should wife be accountable and husband free? If males can do as they wish without seeking prior permissions or even without informing, why can’t the lady?

In her mind someone screamed, “I am not sold!”.
