When I get such forwards from women, I always ask them how they can share them with a straight face. If I get them from men, I keep one or two feminine POV memes handy to hit back immediately...
The stereotyping had begun at an age and time where the target audience or 'reader's so to speak, were mostly men, some of them, supposedly henpecked husbands 'wishing' to rove. Maybe that is how it all began. But I'm sure no woman worth her femininity will ever wish to crack such jokes now, and hence with time, these are sure to die down. But then, knowing a stereotype doesn't suddenly vanish in a day, I guess we will have to patiently wait, though by not sharing, and not laughing at such stupid jokes and memes will probably fasten the process. Let's see how it goes!
Cliche sells to the masses. Indian society, in general, has not evolved in terms of relationship definition. Making misery of their married condition gives men opportunity to justify their roving lust. Luckily, in the younger people this trend is not prominent. Young men between 20 and 30 years of age have competed with women to achieve whatever they have. So, they tend to think women as friends and colleagues more than the middle aged men, for whom marriage is the altar to sacrifice 'independence'. Also, this kind of stereotyping and joke sharing is more North Indian in nature, as I do not find such practice much prevalent among my South Indian friends. I have checked out of several functional whatsapp groups (for my residential complex, for another work group) due to an abundance of such husband-wife jokes completely destroying the purpose of that group.
I would love to see a movie or work of art, where the wife is promiscuous and the husband tries all tricks up his sleeve to keep the wife loyal to him. We can portray this woman as a very successful career person and the man as a house-husband. Just to prove the point!

A friend of mine says that her husband helps her with chores only if she agrees not to discuss the same in his family, he is OK lending her support but no one should know, especially his mom. What is shameful in letting the world know that a husband cares for his wife?
This question is to both the sexes, would/did you bring in bigger wardrobe, move TV inside, revamp the attached bathroom or paint the walls?
They say we meet parts of 'Self' we don't even know about when in close relationships. I understood that I lie to myself convincingly and believe in my lie with all my heart. But through him, with what I experience (which mocks my lie unabashedly to my face) I know how I trick my own Self. Share something about you?
There are these two men I feel jealous about, the way my wife chats with them in parties. I know nothing more will happen, it's just party fun, but still can't help watching out for where she is when they are in the same party. Help please.
Marriages are made in heaven, but they are lived here on earth. What makes a good, fulfilled marriage? How far do couples travel along, hand in hand, to reach this state?
How does one define intimacy? I feel that sometimes the simple act of holding hands can be very intimate.
Why do men shy away from relationship discussions?
Why do men think that helping the wife is shameful or makes them henpecked?
One takeaway on 'love' from the year 2016?
In a digital & chatting generation, how often do you think a relationship converts to marriage?
Does romance get heightened during winters?
