A mama's boy will require you to do everything for him like his mother did before his wedding. But isn't there is a difference between a mother and a wife?
A mama’s boy will require you to do everything for him like his mother did before his wedding. But isn’t there is a difference between a mother and a wife?
As women, many of us may have said that we’d like to marry a man who’s a single child, while talking to our parents or friends. I believe this is mostly so that the issues related to property division or problems between sisters-in-law may be avoided. And also to avoid the bias between the devrani and jethani may not arise.
However, there is a huge difference between a single child and a mama’s boy!
A mama’s boy is way too hard to handle! While it is your choice if you want to marry a single child, an enquiry on the boy’s independence is important. You need to know if he is still dependent on his mother for every single thing.
If you don’t do so, your life has the potential to become hell and it will seem like you’ve adopted a son from your mother-in-law. He will still require you to do everything for him like his mother did before his wedding. But there is a difference between a mother and a wife, isn’t there?
The other issue with such men is that they can barely argue with their parents when they are wrong. And neither can they support their wives when they are right about certain things. This just creates issues and arguments between the husband and wife.
However, in such an argument, the husband is least bothered about the wife, all he wants is that no harm befall his parents. There is nothing wrong with that, but shouldn’t he at least have the courage to oppose and stand up to them when they are wrong?
A mama’s boy expects and wishes his wife be like his mother. He expects her to handle the house, manage finances like his mother. This man expects his wife’s food to taste like his ‘maa ke haath ka khana.’ There are many such demands that he has.
They rarely consider the fact that the woman may have her own identity and individuality and that she can be someone else. How is a relationship like this going to work today when women are independent and rarely have time to do certain things!
It’s a really debatable topic, isn’t it?

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
It's well known how diplomatic and professional Priyanka Chopra is. Why would she want to stir the hornet’s nest when everyone’s happy in their personal space?
Priyanka Chopra (PC) did something completely out of character. She’s usually known for being articulate and mostly diplomatic, unless she wants to give sassy comebacks to people who try to put her on the spot or ‘in her place’.
She’s someone who’s never fought the establishment because she understands you can’t win against it anyway. But you can work around it to get your way to the top. She’s a thorough professional and team player.
For someone like Priyanka Chopra who’s never played victim so far, to admit being the scapegoat of petty politics in the Hindi film industry was refreshing. It’s good to see this unfiltered, vulnerable side of her for a change. PC revealed one of her reasons for shifting to Hollywood on the podcast, Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard.
