A boy was brought up in a family of poor. The daughters were wed and her in-laws were harsh. They would torture and suffocate her. Festivals were trouble to the girl’s family. The boy who is brought up in such a family, decides he would never do that. He wouldn’t trouble a girl’s family. Beyond that point, he decides he would never visit his in-laws, to avoid any kind of trouble to them. He is adamant in this mindset !
– Is it appropriate of him to be so ? What are the consequences of this mindset ?

  1. Story one: his decision is a bit extreme. It would start to feel like he doesn’t even have a relationship with his in-laws.
    Story two: she only wants her daughter to have a better life. She does not exactly know what is good enough.
    Story three: I think it’s a bit too far-fetched to expect a perfect girl. Everyone has to make compromises; a relationship means meeting in the middle. He won’t find one girl to his satisfaction if he goes with a checklist. I have myself thought of so many things that I want in my future partner, but I know that I will not find the perfect person who will give way to me all the time. Now, all I think about is that my future partner should accept me, my passions and my hobbies. The rest is just dynamic. A checklist wouldn’t bring anything,

    • 🙂 It is my secret. Well not a secret, but it is the observation from the things around me.

  2. Story three … I think it’s ok to have a checklist to short list but human nature is complex and subjective hence the decision in 30 Min seems wrong … and I have a question… why do you think a good person in your story didn’t or couldn’t go out with a girl he liked ?

    • Why do you think a good person in your story didn’t or couldn’t go out with a girl he liked ?

      – I tried to locate this sentence in the story but couldn’t find. I am sure it doesn’t convey anywhere that he liked a girl ? It was mere possibility you are exploring, but in this there isn’t any such instance. It is pure – no indulgences with girls. It is was clear mindset for arranged marriage, that he didn’t look out anywhere. That is merely one thing I can think of.

  3. Story one … boy is going to the other extreme and his decision to never visit his in-laws is most probably going to make the same person sad for whom he is doing it …

    • Yes, I do believe the same. By trying to do good to such an extreme, he may hurt them.
      Life is not binary or polar, it is sometime good to land somewhere between and not be at the extremes.
      Alas, it doesn’t happen in that way though.
