On Marriage

I came across this wonderful article that expresses my view of marriage very well.

It is not my story, though. I was already a feminist before I got married, and though the Guy disdains the term, he was, too. Consequently, we didn't go through much of that struggle to conform to stereotypes. We only encouraged each other to defy them.

The last sentence, though, could have been written for us!

Nice article... and I could so associate with it. The article was talking about me at one level totally. Thanks for the link...

Maitreyee, Pallu, Chandu, Emma: Thanks. It's encouraging to see all of you agree: I so often get discouraged by what I see around me, by the continual reinforcement of gender stereotypes.

"get discouraged by what I see around me"???

What was I doing then?

Unmana said...

Nil: This might come as a shock, but not everything I say is a reaction to something you did.
