Comment : I don't accept extra-marital affairs either on or off the screen. If you commit to marriage, then better be loyal. Else, don't bother getting married. Call me a puritan, but cheating on one's spouse is a big no-no for me. You can fall out of love with your partner. Then have the guts and walk out of the marriage, do not cheat.

We have some hit Hindi films where the hero is an adulterer like Sajan Chale Sasural and Maang Bharo Sajna. One thing is common among these films, they are not realistic or in any sense serious representation of marriage or affair. The films are either senseless comedies or they are stories of larger than life selfless women. On the other hand serious movies like Silsila and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna failed despite the presence of super stars. Is it difficult for us to watch when a film on extra marital relationship gets too real? Did Silsila become even more real with its casting?

Comment : Yes. Knowing what your partner is and what your parents want, it's best not to create a situation that leads to such acrimony. It could have been well avoided.

Comment : It's heartening to know you want her to do something apart from household chores. Wish more men thought on similar lines. Tell her that she can use her own money to buy whatever she wants without having to depend on you. Also tell her that double income would translate into a better lifestyle for both of you, help you realise your dreams faster. All the best :)

I got married recently. My wife is highly qualified but she left her job as soon as she got married. I wish she could use her qualifications into doing something and also don't waste her time at house. Can you guys please tell me that how should I encourage her?
