Comment : Poor understanding! Certainly!

Why is there a stereotyping of the husband as a henpecked man with a roving eye and living in fear of the spouse and the wife always as a nagging overbearing woman? I have noticed majority of jokes, cartoons etc shared among married friends revolve around this perception. Infact, if you have noticed the comedy element of most Indian movies, regardless of language, it also is based on the same theme.

Comment : This stems from a pure understanding that men are forced into the institution of marriage!! Poor creatures, they could do nothing about it!!
