Yes I agree, over dinner last night I was told about a Desi friend thats divorcing her hubby, they have a 1 year old baby girl I think
Both are greatly accomplished, Material Science Ph Ds, IN THEIR 30s
University romance I believe not sure, it happened in the East Coast
He lost his job when I company restructured August, 2 years ago, SHE KEPT HER JOB ALSO at my company .
My friend said "Maybe parents gave some "parental advice" and said "Oh! why dont u get pregnant, sex makes everything better"
She did, he still didnt have a job
Eventually when the baby was born last August he got a job in Tennessee I think and moved. She moved back and forth between my city and his
And this week he is in town to sign "papers"
We can easily slam goras sayinbng "They dont respect marriage" blah blah blah
Given the SAME opportunities and situations WE DO THE EXACT same thing
We are equally intolerant
We have the same amount of ego
We dont respect marriage either
Our careers are supremely important
Job loss DOES take a toll, for a man
If she had lost her job and he had kept his
I DONT think they would have divorced
So true Nisha.
I am a Gujju Indian and my husband is a full blooded Caucasian.
We have been married for 5 yrs now, going towards our 6th wedding anniversary.
Marriages are based on love, trust and companionship for me regardless of the skin color, nationality or religion.
You would want to make it work. Can't help but compare, my husband and his family treats me like me and not some money making machine I was treated in my previous MARRIGE to an indian. Everybody has their own experiences, good or bad. But I tell you mine was not pleasant 7 yrs ago.
