Today I read, tucked away on an inside page of newspaper that a young married woman of 30 committed suicide. The reason was that her husband had stopped loving her after seeing photographs because of which her ex-boyfriend was blackmailing her.
I was quite disturbed as she was daughter in law of a retired officer of our elite service. This surely would mean that her husband must be well educated as well as well placed. Does that not mean that they should have been broadminded and in keeping with changing times? I strongly feel that they should have supported her and taken that unscrupulous man to task. He not only played with her emotions when she was young but also was a villain trying to ruin her married life.
Everyone of us has something from our past which we do not want to be publicly known but as long as it is PAST, it should be let remain so. Young persons do get carried away by false sense of security in love emotions but should that be held against only girls and not boys? I think if a family understands and gives loving support to girl to overcome that mistake, she would be a truly dependable member of family for all times to come. Of course, there can be some girls who will not understand this gesture and take advantage of such affection as sign of weakness.
