“If we are to fight discrimination and injustice against women we must start from the home for if a woman cannot be safe in her own house then she cannot be expected to feel safe anywhere.”
― Aysha Taryam
There’s so much pain in loosing a mother. Death is like a dream one keeps waking to- trying to figure out every passing day how it all happened or when it did. And yet I bit myself so hard when I see a lot of women still holding on to a Broken Marriage. Someone once told me that when one’s husband keeps mistreating one, one should keep praying for him. But I ‘d say to hell with that- will religion take care of one? When all is done, regret, pain and undone years is the price those poor lonely children pay for the actions we women failed to take a long time.
I see a lot of guys around me who gladly open their mouth to say that they won’t let their wives work, if you look at it at a shallow level, you’d say good man. Hell hell… That’s the beginning of oppression. The beginning of silence. I feel that when a man makes a woman a housewife, he takes away her freedom-to self expression. And when a power drunken man begins to act mad, the voiceless woman becomes an object- a weak one , broken and fragile that she keeps staying not because she wants to or enjoys it, but because she has no where to go or nothing to hold on to and then she keeps clinging on to the wings of her children and uses them as a reason for accepting all forms of pain till one day she’s stiff and cold-absent minded like a staring shadow waiting to be recognized.
I ‘d stop here for today. what’s your view?
I hope you all understand the Images?
Seriously why do women stay in a broken marriage? to fix what is broken?
