Comment : A few months after my marriage, a man I had just met at a party asked me, 'why are you just a house wife'.

I was furious. Didn't even bother telling him that I am a professor and working. He didn't deserve any justification from me- whether or not I choose to work is not his concern!

Having seen my mother and mother in law, I knew fully well how challenging and demanding it is to run a home well. You have to be efficient and totally on top of your game to make it run like a well oiled machine. So all I could manage to say was, 'what do you mean just a house wife? What do YOU know about running a home'?

God knows why people have opinions on women and their work status.

Personally, am so so grateful to all full time mothers, lady doctors/ dentists/teachers, bus didi's, domestic staff, female parking assistants, lady swimming coaches and bank Tellers and writers... and so on.. for making society what it is. I feel a society is beautiful when its women can be out there, as active members, contributing without fear and choose for themselves what they want to do.

Comment : Well if something really bothers one, then they might as well tell their other halves , else how will they know or try to change. We just need to remember that we might also be doing something annoying and hence would need to be ready to work on our own shortcomings too!

Do you think in coupledom it is important to speak of what irks about the other's behaviour, even trivia. Imperative in understanding partner's anger, where it stems from? Give why/why not please.

Comment : Yes, I think they can. Most spouses instinctively know themselves, how comfortable they and their other half are with continuing friendships with the opposite sex post marriage. My friends have bestfriends of the opposite sex since their primary school days and they have so many childhood and growing up memories... After their marriage I see them continue to be friends and manage really well.

I want to ask the ladies and gentlemen on this forum if they have been close to a particular friend of the opposite sex before marriage and whether they have managed to maintain the same strong friendship even after they got married or has the intensity dwindled with time?
