Double standards of societySharing something a friend posted on Facebook. I have maintained the essence of the post, but rephrased the wordings. Here goes -
If a man does not wish to reside with his wife's parents he is regarded as an independent and righteous man, with a great sense of pride. Men living with their in-laws are generally looked down upon, in most Indian communities. However, if a woman chooses not to live with her husband's parents she is thought of as being a crafty and devious sorceress, who has distanced the son away from his parents.
Why does society portray such double standards? What is your view on this?
