It looks quite ironic how attitudes towards relationships have changed. When I started to jot down the points, incidents and real life experiences of different individuals either shared by them or observed by me at multiple places, I was sure in my mind that I will receive a lot of criticism, titles and what not. Anyways, I still take that courage quotient out to elaborate my starting statement. I am sure all of us have grown up keeping our moms and dads in mind – as our role models. This is nothing unusual. In every home, every boy’s best friend is his mom and every girl’s king is her father. Why is it always like this? The answer is simple; their attitude towards their kids and partners makes them earn that position.
The new age woman (born after 1980’s) is very strong – she even doesn’t need a man to support her. She is capable of taking care of her own self. She uses her mind and not her heart to make decision pertaining to her life. She mostly prefers stability in a man rather than the amount of love that can be shared by him. When she marries a man she has her own life as well, just like her old mom she doesn’t want to sacrifice her freedom, happiness and these days entertainment as well. Her weakest point is taking an uninterrupted sleep of 10 – 12 hours. She by no means wants to stay away from Facebook. After all, getting connected is the key of enjoyment nowadays and playing Candy Crush and solving Criminal Cases are far important than anything else.
A woman should never be disturbed by her husband while watching Sheldon Cooper in “The Big Bang Theory”, Joey, Grey’s Anatomy, Castle, How I met your mother and list continues on and on. Without fun elements in life, how can you expect her to keep her happiness intact? Plus, it is out of etiquettes to ask her to do anything in case she is watching “Master Chef”. When she is asked to cook something different, keeping in mind that she must have learned something from experts and cooks, she bluntly replies that she watches the show for sheer entertainment. Now that’s an interesting answer.
There used to be a time when women used to window-shop and for this reason most of the men never liked to accompany them but these days things have changed electronically and socially. On Pinterest and Facebook there are millions of pages which keep these woman glued to their seats in awe, doing nothing but liking pages, posts and images etc. At times I wonder today’s beauties are really blessed with genuine brains as they don’t want to sacrifice their happiness (talking about most and not all), like their moms.
Today almost ever house in cities has maids, in fact multiple maids. Some are for dish washing, some take care of cleaning of the house, in some houses they either cook food or iron clothes. With the passage of time we should agree to the fact that life for women has become comparatively easier. Even then they don’t look satisfied with it. Can any one answer why? Woman is truly a riddle.
This article is an outcome of the experiences, stories, observations and incidents shared by many individuals with me. I am not at all against women and thankfully I haven’t encountered many women like these – but they do exist. I am sorry if I have heart anyone’s feelings or freedom of life, just shared what’s happening these days.
