In Indian society, less consideration is given to freedom, preferences, mental health and happiness of female sex. Once daughters are married off, most Indian parents feel that their responsibilities are over. For a low class or an average middle class Indian family where daughters are financially dependent, parents only look for the factors - if son-in-law takes the financial responsibility of the family, and a few parents are concerned about physical abuses. In most cases they will ask their daughters to tolerate as long as 'he looks after the family'. Does it mean an average Indian family expects the money aid from son-in-laws as the prime factor?
Only less families have given importance to factors such as "If our daughter happy with him?", "Does he give her enough freedom to express and desire to do something, go for a job etc?", "Are they compatible?", Mental abuses etc. But when it comes to daughter-in-laws, all the factors quoted above become primary concerns to quote her wrong, while financial responsibility may be partially or fully given to sons. Sons can physically abuse their wives in Indian society while it's a crime in our society if a wife does so.
What do you think? What are the facts an average Indian family expects from their son-in-law? What else can they adjust with?

|Many life partners are there who read minds of their spouses and help them to cherish their dreams. If so their bonds grow stronger. Telling something personal, my mother-in-law says, wife should behave like a slave to her husband, and parents should teach the same thing to their daughters before sending them to new homes. They should take their husbands' needs as orders. Actually she don't have any daughters, and have three sons. So can't understand what a daughter's mind is. But my hubby is not so. He has never put any restriction on me to go out, calling friends or communicating with social media. He never interfere in such things saying why should he do so. Also he has given full support to choose a career of my choice, and never interfere in my desires. When we get personal space in a relationship, it takes the relationship to a new level definitely. - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|
