You should've taken some men's feedback on how they suffer while balancing between wife and own family and the duties that wife should've performed towards whole as a family. Nowadays Women think their family is only husband-wife-own children. That aspect not taken into consideration and the cruelties faced by men not discussed or thought of while writing such column hence RACIST.
Went through the article, sympathize with all righteous women. But my experience tells that men are always not wrong. Seen in one of the cases that sheer frustration of demands of women let a man to hit her (although violence is wrong). Here, we should also look at the triggers, which drive men to do this sort of violence. It might be their own upbringing, behaviour of parents, behaviour of peers, pressure (financial or any other) which may drive them. If there is understanding and sense of partnership, then most issues can be solved. But if there is only cribbing that women get hit, nothing can be done. Now women have so many ways in which they can express. This is 21st century and in this world of 4g/5g, there are enough opportunities for women as well. When you speak of violence to women in marriages, think and violence or frustrations of men also, and both needs to be looked at with the same lense. Otherwise, issue will never get solved/reduced.
But what is the solution? Abolish the institution of marriages? I am not joking. In a west African country, where I worked for 2.5 years, marriage between man and women is not important at all. Yet rarely we heard of rapes, women committing suicide, violence. It is based on a social system which we may find weird, but it works for them.
