The Invisible Struggle: The Lives of Women Who Can’t Work After Marriage.
Marriage is considered the beginning of a new chapter in a woman’s life. It’s a time when she starts a new life with her partner and embarks on a journey of love and companionship. However, marriage is not always a bed of roses for many women. In fact, for some women, it’s a time when they are forced to give up their dreams and aspirations.
It’s 2023 but still, One of the biggest issues faced by women after marriage is the restriction on working. Many women are not allowed by their husbands and in-laws to work after marriage. They are expected to dedicate their lives to household chores and family responsibilities. They are not allowed to wear their favorite clothes or do things that they used to enjoy before marriage. They have to wake up first in the morning and will go to sleep at the last. They will cook, they will serve, but they will eat at last. This can be extremely difficult for women who have always been independent and have worked hard to achieve their goals.
It’s heartbreaking to see that many women are not allowed to pursue their dreams and are forced to give up their careers. They are not allowed to be financially independent and are expected to depend on their husbands for everything. This is not only unfair but also detrimental to their mental health.
I remember my friend, Radhika, who was an ambitious and hardworking woman. She was a successful journalist and had worked tirelessly to build her career. However, after getting married, she was forced to quit her job and stay at home to take care of her family. She was devastated and felt like she had lost everything she had worked so hard for. She struggled to adjust to her new life and felt like she had lost her identity.
To help women like Radhika, we need to encourage and support them to pursue their goals and dreams. Women are capable of achieving great things, and they should be allowed to do so. We need to break free from these societal norms and expectations and empower women to live their lives on their terms.
They must be free to choose their careers and live their lives on their terms. They should not be forced to give up their dreams and aspirations just because they got married. Women need to have the support of their partners and families in pursuing their goals.
Have you ever experienced a situation where you felt forced to give up your dreams and aspirations due to societal norms or expectations? What steps did you take to overcome this issue? Let’s share our experiences and support each other in breaking free from these restrictions and pursuing our dreams.
In the words of Eleanor Roosevelt, “A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.” Women are strong and resilient, and they should be allowed to shine.

As a working woman, if I wish to take care of my mother, why do you have a problem with it?
When I joined one of the organisations on deputation, I was asked to fill up several forms as usual.
One of the forms was related to the individual’s dependents. In that, I also filled up the name of my mother, which I had been doing since the time my father died.
Immediately the junior official exclaimed, “You can’t fill up your mother’s name as a dependent!”
Drama has always been something that has attracted the people of India. And what if that drama helps you to make a living? You definitely serve it fresh, every night, with a pinch of exaggerated misogyny.
Drama has always been something that has attracted and even sometimes united the people of India. And what if that drama helps you to make a living? You definitely serve it fresh, every night, with a pinch of exaggerated misogyny.
The Great “INDIAN SERIALS” are food to the alarmingly disturbing WhatsApp forwards, sexist jokes and groundless beliefs. With many shows completing more than a thousand episodes, the extent of the effect of this drug overdose can rarely be comprehended in our human minds.
The characteristics that make them nothing more than a huge trash can are quite specific to them, and thereby necessary to determine.
