I am intrigued with relationships


Miserliness! And people who get drunk and make a fool of themselves

So many!

Wow! This is poken from the heart and needs to be understood well! Thanks for this Aarti! 

The question just stopped me in my tracks? Whom i will choose to help? My friend or his/her better half? Will i let better sense prevail? or will i get emotional about the issue?Who will i work to save?

Hi Ankur, I did a lot of research on this, went to many therapists and counsellors as I was working on my book. Understood these reasons...

1. Infidelity. 

2. In-laws! (Yes believe it or not, In-laws it sems micro-manage even if they are cities apart) 

3. Small town girl/boy marrying a big town person. Differences in the way they look at things...small issues become big ones! 

4. Women stepping out, becoming independent. Men do not know how to handle it.




I got divorced when my wife and I realised we no longer were the people the other fell in love with. Our society still stigmatises divorce. What do you think are the top reasons for divorce in India?

I did a lot of research on this and one thing that pops put a lot is how people go and find their old crushes via social media and visit not the person that is there then, but the idea of the person when they were young and relatively carefree, which in turns causes a lot of complication. 

We have a quiz also on our website which gives you an output on how social media impacts your relationship.
