Marriage

Bookmark and Share
 

It all changed
When she exchanged
Garlands with a man
He who had professed
His eternal love for her
But she seemed no longer 
The true love of his life
In her role as his wife

Rather she was treated
Like the female version
Of Wodehouse's Jeeves
Expected to be aware of
And responsive to not only
His never-ending needs
But those of his parents too
As a doting daughter-in-law

She did politely try to rebel
The reaction was unpalatable
How could a smart young bride
Ever aspire to try and deride
The wishes of her dear spouse
She was supposed to be a mouse
Pottering around the house
Looking for ways to please all

The disillusioned girl shed many a tear
As her role in her new home became clear

Comments on this Poem

Comment But actually women in the garb of mothers in law do the ragging of the daughters in law! A man is divided between his mother and wife, both of whom demand complete allegiance! Imagine how illogical women are demanding complete allegiance! Men on the other hand are so mean demanding complete allegiance from his wife as because he feeds her. Dowry demand is based on the same logic: As the wife has to be fed life long, his in laws should part with some cash and all. Human beings have a tendency to demean every good institution, including marriage.
