A well knit family whose members are loving, affectionate, religious, educated, cultured and socially active starts crumbling, disintegrating, and the attitude of the family turns hostile, vicious, monstrous and sometimes murderous resulting in a drastic transformation due to marital expectations that went wrong.
Answer: Marital Expectations
In a majority of marriages, a list of dowry along with a list of activities for the wedding are strenuously prepared. However, another vital list is just assumed and neither prepared nor its veracity checked. This list however comes into effect post-marriage and plays a vital role in all relationships. The list of expectations that is ignored at the beginning brings an end very soon.
Some of the important expectations are related to matters such as:
In addition to the above, it is essential to know if there are any specific expectations from the future Mother-In-Law, Daughter-In-Law and Son-In-Law.
The following links provide some expectations from the Mother-In-Law and Daughter-In-Law:
If the above expectations are ascertained, discussed and agreed upon before marriage it will pave way for a smooth marital journey and better relationships. However, if these expectations are discovered one by one, they could be shocking, surprising, painful, disdainful, hurtful and demeaning.

So: one should strive to know the challenges, and get their expectations right. Then, jump in with both feet.

Rajshri Deshpande is more than an actor. She is also a social warrior, the rare celebrity from the film industry who has also gone back to her roots to give to poverty struck farming villages in her native Marathwada, with her NGO Nabhangan Foundation. Of course a chance to speak with her one on one was a must!
“What is a woman’s job, Ramesh? Taking care of parents-in-law, husband, children, home and things at work—all at the same time? She isn’t God or a superhuman."
The arrays of workstations were occupied by people peering into their computer screens. The clicks of keyboard keys were punctuated by the occasional footsteps moving around to brainstorm or collaborate with colleagues in their cubicles.
