Do you allow your wife to be herself?This thread is directed at members who are up to thirty-five years of age. Also assumed that their wives would be 32 years old, at the maximum. Recently, when the mother in law of a very close friend tried to impose some dress code on her daughter-in-law, employed in a middle management position in a leading IT company in Chennai, all hell broke loose. She bluntly refused, saying that it is her birthright to be dressed in whatever way she wants.
She was just nine months old into marriage. She has an MBA from a very famous ultra-modern college, well known for its high tech fashion, in the Nungambakkam area of Chennai. This is also a very posh locality.
Somehow or the other, the man was able to prevail on the mother. The girl went on to give a big lecture on how times have changed and the same orthodox methods will work no more.
The crucial question is: do you allow your wife to be what she is? This simply means accepting her as what she is and not what you want her to be. Luckily, in this case, the husband was a lot more understanding. What might happen if the son also agrees with his mother?
