Woman also means wife of a man. The major responsibilities are on the shoulder of a man rather than a woman. Also our laws are made such that they are helpful only to women and not men. When a married woman does adultery, she is not penalized, it is treated only as cruelty by the law and let go, whereas men are penalized as criminals. This is also one of the major reasons men are prone to suicide than women. It is men who need to fight for equality is the case now.

on the contrary my friend, a woman commiting adultery has to bear the brunt of society, family, friends, in laws and even her own parents. They would never introspect the root cause of adultery and keep on blaming the female. On the other hand ,adultery by menfolk is taken for granted. There are many men who keep mistresses inspite of having a caring wife and look at it as a status symbol.
I think, the trend is more to do with responsibilities, rather than sex. Traditionally in India, men have more responsibilities especially the financial responsibilities. This makes anyone, whether its a man or woman, with more responsibilities on their shoulders, prone to higher distress.

Yeah, very correct. Men are often emotionally abused.Suppose you often find your wife being vituperant towards you but when you act it becomes a criminal offence. This is the problem in India. We fail to strike balance.
