It is unfortunate to note that for the domineering egos of old people, at times young couples become scape goats.
Recently, this author has come across a case of a young couple who had been waiting in the family court seeking divorce.When he saw them he was astonished to note that both of them were in their 30s.
At first he approached the husband and enquired him whether he was willing to cohabit with his spouse.The answer was in the affirmative.Then his wife was also approached. She too was not averse to live with her husband.Then it was finally known that the husband’s father had some aversion towards his daughter-in-laws father, who was said to have illtreated him during their marriage or subsequently.Hence he owed to take revenge upon them.In the result, his son was coaxed into seeking a divorce from his wife.
Then the husband’s father was also approached and it was conveyed to him that his son had more regards and respect to him than anybody else.He was pleased.Then the old man was tapped.How long he had been living with his wife.The answer was over thirty years.Then why his son had to divorce his wife very early.What mistake that was committed by his daughter-in-law.Nothing.Then why should they get divorce.Finally the old man was convinced and within half an hour the divorce petition was withdrawn and the couple along with their elders left for home.
Who ever it might be.The couples should think twice before filing a vexatious divorce petition.The elders should allow the young couple to live peacefully and should not meddle with the life of others and try to appease their own ego.
