What It Feels Like To Be A Married Woman And Wearing An Outfit Of Your Choice!

Hear, hear, ladies!

Getting married and living together is a choice teo individuals make. A marriage is basically good companionship where two individuals decide to help each other out physically and emotionally. But, the rules and restrictions the society has constructed over years for women has made it hard for several of them to enjoy wedlock in peace. While several husbands ask their wives to not go to work after marriage, some go to the extent of making sure their wives adhere to even their basic needs like washing clothes and making their bed albeit this is a job that must be done without any gender discrimination.

But, easily one of the most outrageous discriminations is the woman’s choice of outfits that is expected to change post their wedding. Wearing cute PJ shorts before wedding, a woman talks about how that changed for her. “Shorts are my comfort clothes when I’m at home. It makes me feel at ease. When I wore my shorts after my wedding, my mother-in-law, didn’t like it and asked me to wear any night clothes that come below my knee. Not that I’m judging her but that was the last time I felt comfortable in that house,” quotes the woman.

Similarly, a celebrity like Samantha Akkineni may not have faced it with her in-laws but she did face it with her fans. When she got married, she was judged for wearing “revealing clothes”. “I remember, the first time when I wore something revealing after marriage, I was trolled terribly and it was very, very hard. But I noticed that when I did it the second time, it was not so bad. It’s all about taking that first step. I’m not going to say that I did something brave. I was scared of the repercussions and of the trolling. But at the same, I told myself that things have to change and I’m going to do as much as I can to be a part of that change,” the Majili actress had said.

Each woman goes through a different phase of struggle to break societal stereotypes after her wedding and it is only unfair and mostly women go through this more. Why do you think women need to change so much after their wedding?
