If women empowerment doesn't allow her to take care of family and be the emotional binding point of view in the family. Then women empowerment will lead to divorce no doubt without that quality in a woman the family just acts as paying guest where people earn and live.

If family is taken as it is designed to be then women has different roles and responsibility. She is the key to happiness in the family culture. If she acts same as husband then who is going to take role of wife.

Are women ready to work and feed, and allow husbands to keep emotional and sentimental attachments of family?

If I am going to start a family, I would want my wife to look after my kids. Impart them with moral values and education. Because she would always be better at those things. Now, if some how I get married to a woman who is always worried about her career rather than her children, then I better not start a family.

In fact the risks of marriage now-a-days far outweigh the rewards. If a man thinks logically, he can get all the privileges of marriage staying single without having to worry about the risks. So why marry, and then get divorced 3 years later, lose half of your wealth, your house, your children, give alimony, give child support, go through emotional torture. Why?

Then if the wife files a false case of DV, then you and your family members get arrested without any explanation. Why would a sensible man, "who thinks in his head", would get married ?

I completely disagree from the above statement. As we are living in a democratic country where both men's and women's are given equal rights. I think all women's should be self sufficient in earning money. Because one educated women can educate whole home.

And I don't think this reason can ever lead to her divorce. Because education and knowledge only helps an individual in fulfilling their needs and to fight in today's world.

Hi everyone!

I would like to add my point's here. We all know men and women both are God's creation so they have equal rights in this society and it is not effected in increasing divorce rates. The main reason or common fact is woman's are narrow minded and possessive minded so its effected their daily life and it leads to divorce.

Many of my dear friends got deviated from the topic, it is not about whether the women empowerment is good or bad. Our topic was does women empowerment increases the divorce rate in India and I'm in the favour of it.

As per our society marriage is something like lifetime commitment by both the partners to live together. And since years women are taught to keep this bonding forever and to adjust in every situation but what if their marriage didn't worked? what she'll do? Will she get separated?

In most of the cases answer would be no. OK so here is the reason. Women of past generations were not having the facilities of education and so they got suppressed by others as they were not aware of their rights and power.

When they got such platform become educated. Turned bold strong self dependent they started taking decisions of their life on their own rather being ruled by others and so they even big decision of divorce to make their life better afterwards. These are my views.

No, I don't think women empowerment is the cause behind marriages. Its nowhere written that men are superior than women. This concept still prevails in India which must be eradicated. Both men and women have equal rights to live their life in the way they wish.

The nation can develop faster if women in every home is educated. The family is happier if mother is educated and empowered.

Also at current time in a country like India where inflation rate is very high, a home can not run with only one source of income. If both husband and wife are earning they can enjoy a better life economically and socially. So doing a job by women is also a necessity.

Now most of the men understand the fact that just because they are physically stronger doesn't mean that they are superior. Both men and women are God's creation and so both have equal rights.

Women empowerment can lead to a better life of a family.

Having lived and suffered in a patriarchal society for most of the history, I think it is only fair that women today are moving towards more empowerment and responsibilities. And looking at their progress we can definitely agree that women have proved that they are no less than men when it comes to handling things other than mere household work.

As for the increasing divorce rates in the country, men here are accustomed to or to rather say it is in their nature to be the sole provider in the family and have the first say in every household decision and they feel it as a blotch on their manhood when women come forward strongly with their views. It is because all this women empowerment thing (which is a good thing) is a recent phenomena and it will take some time for men to get out of this traditional viewpoint of them being the sole provider. Not to say this is the only reason but this difference of mindset leads to conflicts that ultimately results in a divorce.

But eventually with this rate of progress, women will soon enjoy the same status as men and by then men will have come out this notion of them being the superior gender and hopefully we will see a decline in divorce rates and the country will also be a better place for women to live.

I think know one is thinking about what is going to happen in future with the current trends.

1. Increase in Divorces. Don't go by %age as the population is also increasing rapidly.

2. Increase in Inter-Caste / Love marriages. May be good but most of the time fails or leads to elementary family & Ignored aged Parents without support.

3. * Increase in Unmarried individuals(Singles both men & women).

There are thousands of unmarried individuals even at the age of 40+


A). Unable to find suitable match (Mostly because women are more educated or economically sophisticated than men or expectations not matching of both. ).

B). Because of such incomplete laws New marriage (Amendment) bill, IPC 498a. Why should anyone take risk. I See "Live Single, Be happy" status quotes of many men. When marriage itself is sharing everything with each other, why should there be a law to specify. If specified, why it does not define something like.

1. Divorce can be possible only after 6 months of marriage(Exceptional on special cases).

2. Divorce is not possible if married for more than 10 years(I don't know what reasons can lead to divorce after living together for 10 years). They can live separate without divorce as well right.

3. Divorced within 3 years will not get the benefit of the new "Marriages Law (Amendment) Bill". However if Children are born, both take the equal responsibility of their children's. How stupid is the law which states only after 3 years of staying separate they can apply for divorce. So the law is to separate them not to keep them together.

Obvious, if the person is separating from her spouse, she has decided to live independently on her own or she can re-marry. Why should she ask for compensation or share in ex-husbands property.

4. If dowry is of a concern : Punish both Husband and wife and both their family. Because at the time of marriage they both had agreed on dowry (for whatever the reason could be), and when conflict starts only Husband and His Family are treated as accused/culprits.

One of the famous female lawyer stated on a TV news Channel that she has helped a woman to get divorce 5 times and 6th time she rejected to take-up the case. What a pity.

I would say let empowerment happen, but not in such a manner wherein Marriage itself will become History and obviously there will not be scope for Divorce :).

Best solution. Remove all laws and go in for pre-marriage agreement between boy and the girl. Precaution is better than prevention :).

Women Empowerment leads to divorce is true factually speaking. If we just analyze the growing rate of Divorces we will clearly see that maximum percentage is in the urban areas where both the partners are working. Seeing this trend just like US & UK and other advanced countries India too will have high levels of Divorce rates going forward.

Due to very high levels of education in women and very high salaries at times it strains the matrimonial relations among the couple when the other partner cannot match the others level of career success and lifestyle.

The society is also changing fast so many drastic changes will lead to the Indian society no longer remaining the way it is today say one or two decades henceforward. But it will lead to many social problems. India should introspect as to where it is heading.

Due to women empowerment they become more stable, independent and it is obvious that she would require respect from her husband and family. But if the family is of backward thinking and have a view that women are made for household work then it can lead to conflicts and sometimes divorce. But that does not mean that women empowerment is not to be supported, women have their fundamental rights and has to be treated equally in the society as men, what has to be changed is mentality of people.

Empowerment means to vest with authority. I don't think that women empowerment is any cause for divorces at present age. Instead they make the roots of relation strong. If the women empowerment is not taking place the somewhere each &every person is responsible. Think once again you would recognize that there is rapid change in condition of literally as well as financially.

Many great women personalities have supported our country to come forward. And as a result others have also taken lot of inspiration by them and every women is trying to achieve sky and I'm sure that they would success on day and that day would come sooner.

I personally think that if men have the right to study, get good job, etc.., then why women are restricted to study? being a human being they also have the right to their wishes. If they want to be independent, they can no one can stop them.

If we talk about divorce rates, then may be sometimes it is women mistake but not always, actually a few times. Most of the time its because of men. Moreover, if thoughts of two people don't match so its better that they leave each other at the right time.

The Indian society has to accept that we have double standards in everything we do. There is no doubt that the modern Indian women have been truly empowered. However Please ask yourself following questions:

1. Does just education and freedom mean empowerment? My point is one is truly empowered if education and knowledge is exhibited and used in a proper way. As an individual (be it a male or female) you get truly empowered when you also realize that for everything you get from your parents or society you also have a role to play, you cannot run away from responsibilities if some rights have been granted. E.g., if you have all the rights to be independent and come home late then you also have the responsibilities of at least informing your family and not indulging in an act which causes embarrassment to you or your loved ones. No I am not talking about dress code.

2. Are we truly heading toward an unbiased society (from gender's perspective)? We indians still believe that it is the duty of the man to earn the living for the family and it is the duty of the women to do basic chores like cooking, washing etc. at home. Why don't we encourage girls to study while keeping in mind that they have to utilize the education later on by also focusing on a career. Boys still get a scolding like "you won't do anything good if you don't study hard and later on find a job as soon as possible", a lot of parent force their daughters to study further just for the sake of getting degrees, so that they can boast of the same at the time of finding a suitable match for the daughter. The reverse holds true when it comes to boys parent just make them focus on studies and not learning some home chores.

3. Please go to any matrimonial site or read an matrimony weekly on a local newspaper, in the grooms wanted columns whenever you see girl working as so and so and earning abc per anum they also mentions boys package should be abc+ or even in most cases abc*2 per annum. Why cann't it be boy should be earning at the same level and must know some cooking etc?

4. Quality level of education imparted has decreased substantially. You can easily spot people holding master's degree looking for a job from last 5 years or settling for a job not belonging to their forte. While on the other hand there are people who just managed to get their degree by correspondence and after 3-4 years they are at a good level compared to the earlier league.

I am not trying to say that women empowerment has resulted in increase in divorces. I am just trying to point out that with empowerment one has to accept the set of responsibilities that arise as a consequence. Hope you understand

'Women empowerment leading to increased divorce rates', this is partly true.

Women empowerment is necessary for every women because of the following:

- Having decision making power of their own.
- Having access to information and resources for taking proper decision.
- Ability to exercise assertiveness in collective decision making.

Nowadays parents educate their daughters to empower them. (No getting a fat-pay job.
Doesn't only mean women empowerment. Women might choose to do some philanthropist.
Work for example. ) Yes, in comparison to women in 70's and 80's, women of 90's and as.

Well as today's women are more empowered. They know their rights, self-dependent, have decision making power, have positive self-image.

But these are only the positive aspect of women empowerment, the negative aspects of women empowerment are as follows:

- They misuse their rights, for example IPC Section 406 and many others.
- Most (not all) women, mainly working, harass their husbands at home, which leads to divorce. There are laws for women harassment, but men are equally harassed which goes unnoticed. Yes, it is arguably true.

So to conclude, to be unempowered is not good, but to be over empowered is also not good for the society.

I think women empowerment is the main cause to increase the cases of divorce in Indian society. Nowadays Indian girls are copying foreign culture which is more dangerous for our society as well as culture & tradition. If we saw the pages of ancient Indian history then we find that womens were more secure empowered & there were no cases of divorce.

I don't really get why people often put divorce in a negative light. The reasons why divorce happen:

1) Physical/Emotional/Sexual abuse by either of the spouse.

2) Dowry harassment.

3) Severe Alcoholism (can be taken as physical/mental abuse toward the other spouse. ).

4) Not compatible with each other (such as not having the same tastes, liking etc).

While women empowerment aims at equal status and opportunities for all women and give them rights equivalent to men.

Now please tell me how this is related?

Sure, after the empowerment of women arrived in the society, the divorce rates are increasing. However, why is this bad? Women now understand that they're humans and not animals in human form. They no longer accept the violence and abuse done towards them a long time ago. Why should they stick with a man that treats them like cattle? The whole point of marriage is to be with the person you love forever. When there's no love, the sole purpose of marriage is destroyed. Why remain in such a relationship anyway?

Best example of women empowerment causing divorce is false 498a cases. They're taking advantage of this law that was designed to protect them. However, that is a very teeny tiny percentage compared to the number of women that really suffer in marriage. Is it wrong for these women to get away and live their life well?

I believe that women empowerment is not responsible for the divorces, but it has helped the women take a stand and to decide whether the relationship can be carried on further and if not then to take a divorce due to whatever reasons. Women empowerment has helped the women know their rights and today they are working and financially independent sometimes ego clashes and these things lead to divorces. So it is mentality not empowerment.

Surely women empowerment may be termed as one reason for increasing divorce cases. Compare the condition of women in the 60's to now, the major difference that you would observe is significant rise in the number of working women and as a consequence of this they've become more self dependent and don't have to depend on anyone else for their daily bread. Another consequence of this is women then never used to raise their voice against the exploitation done against them and this was primarily due to there over dependent on their husband or any other male in the family. But now the scenario has been completely changed women having got employed don't beer anything and register complain against the concerned person without a delay.

But inspite of all this women are no where to be blamed, as in 80 percent of the cases it's due to exploitation done against, so in a way they are forced whereas in remaining 20 percent cases, women voluntarily go out for seeking divorce against their spouses.

Conclusively, women empowerment may be a cause for divorce but surely not due to women.

Hello everyone, stop deciding who is the culprit?we should never blame a person whether it is a he or she for getting separated from each other, rather we should blame the situation. These days women empowerment is essential because a country can't be developed if the citizens of it keep on fighting among themselves that who is better man or woman rather than focusing the improvements they can bring together.

For this the society have to change their mindset, opportunity doesn't with a name on it, you have to grab yours, whether it is a he or she.

So women empowerment has no role with the divorce rate in India because if a couple is happy together nothing can come in between them, at the end of the day they will be together.

The media and technology has a role in degrading the institution of Family. The mobile phone is used by today's woman to have hidden relationships more effectively and gives a bad impression that they were looking for such opportunity to unleash their potential. The media also highlight provoking stories like rape of daughters by father and rape incidents and divorces, while good relationships and good families are not appreciated at the same scale. Good incidents all over the world are not highlighted as war, rape and murder. Many advertisements are not watchable with family.

The nutrition of the institution of Family is necessity of humanity. The loss will not only affect men but also women, especially children. The well keep of this institution should be the basis of a cultured society, truthfulness, decency, sacrifice to humanity and history of human progress. The well being and upbringing of children should be the sole responsibility of Family than state, where a culture human being will be created.

What's the right meaning of empowering women? - Competing with men? I don't think so.

"Can't we have educated women in our home? Can't we have educated mothers?".

Its true that there WAS a time when women were disrespected and ill treated. They were deprived of education. They were not treated equal to men. But times have changed drastically and things are different now.

Now, Like the parts of a machine or like the parts of our body, every body has a specific job to do in our society. And somebody rightly said "No work is Small".

So with more and more women neglecting their primary job of being a good homemaker (the essence and base strength of a healthy society) and taking up jobs which a man can do with much less effort than a woman the balance of the society is getting disturbed.

So, In my views, women empowerment has somehow played a vital role in increasing divorce rates in India.

Good morning friends.

I am here to share my point of views.

Woman empowerment is something which gives woman equal chances to participate or to compete in every field with man. It makes women aware of their rights and freedom. Friends we have been living in a male dominating society where men are superior race.

Earlier women were not allowed to take part in any decision making, they were easy prey of violence and were not allowed to speak even a single word even after violence with them. They were deprived of their basic rights. Even today in many forms or for academic purpose management ask fathers name, why can't they ask for mothers name also?

Now with the empowerment of women they have come to know their rights, their freedom. So they don't want to get discriminated by male. This creates problem because men just can't tolerate to see demeaning their position in the society. They want to rule the society and still think as the superior race in the society. But now woman of our society giving man tough competition.

So even woman start argumenting and the situation becomes heated.

This may one of the cause of increased divorce.

In the end I want to conclude that its the fault of the woman empowerment programmes for increased divorce. Its just for the upliftment of a retarded race of the society.

We man and woman of the society should understand the value of relation. Its just our thoughts that are causing increased divorce.

We need to make it amenable for each other.

Thank you.

Cause for increasing divorce in India is misunderstandings between couples, because before marriage they didn't spent much time with each other or may be dowry demand. Women empowerment can't be a cause. Because women empowerment gives authority to women to come forward to participate in every aspect of life and services not less than a man. It tells about their rights, it make women to raise their voice against any exploitation by society, so how it is a cause.

Can a woman beat man in Spirituality? Even the great Buddha thought 20 times before allowing women to Monkhood. Why? Because even he knew Women are dumb creatures and giving spirituality to women is like giving banana to a monkey.

It is a fact and science agrees that Men have greater will-power than Women. When a man decides something he invariably does it, A man takes secrets to his grave. Can we say the same thing about Women? Women are fickle minded and change their decisions every minute.

However there are certain things in which Women are better than Men.

Can a Man match Woman in giving Motherhood?

Can a Man match Women in Patience?

So Man and Women have individual strengths. But Women being idiots start matching Men in every damn field.

Once you understand that a relationship is just for namesake. Leave I t. Why should you sacrifice self respect and blindfold society and live as if it's your fate and go on? So divorce is inevitable to live freely. But post divorce. It's quite difficult if you don't have a job. Especially if it's a woman with children. So if you are an employed you can live with your head held high and raise your children well. So women empowerment is good. So both are needed. And one cannot be solely blamed for another.

Above all a good relation is based on love, respecting each other, caring and trust and of course compromise and sacrifice is also needed.

A good couple should be God fearing too and raise their offspring well together.

At Least when you bid goodbye to world you can be happy that you had a wonderful family and your part was clear.

According to me in today women got tremendous opportunities to go high and to reach the sky. This is a golden chances for women to prove herself to her hidden potential.

Today man and women have not only the same rules but also 30 percent place reserve for women so it help women much more to achieve their target.

85 percent women work outside with managing their home after marriage that means they spend more time in official work than her home, and can't give so much time to her family which she must want to give, the result cause dissatisfaction in both husband and wife. Husband also feel bad only at some places equally participate in household responsibilities.

No Women Empowerment - A Cause for Increasing Divorce Rate in India yes she will be wrong at sometime but her husband try to understand and make she known that what was her mistake. Yes if she is wrong at same mistake many times then husband should take any action but remember that No one can clap by only one hand.

But it does not mean that women should not work outside and become only homemaker,

She should work but she have such type of job that she can spend her more time with family too.

Sorry If I hurt anyone, I write here my opinion only which I think. Because in today technical world women do not want to stay only as a housewife she want to do something different, she want to help her family, her husband financially and she do that. Women know their responsibilities very well and they follow them only the need require sometimes is to support her.

Before discussing this topic let me ask you. What is women empowerment. It is empowering of the women of our nation. So that they could be financially independent. Women empowerment is a step to giving women equal status as men. It is a step to make women stronger. How could this be a cause for divorce.

If you think women empowerment is a cause for divorce. Then it is because women who were suffering from men's torture and harassment, women who have been living like a slave to her husband. Because she had no other choice. Because she don't know what else to do than silent suffering. Now are financially independent. Now are aware of their rights. Now have the courage to raise her voice against the injustices towards her. If that is causing this increase in divorce rates. Is that bad? In my opinion NO! Everyone should be given equal rights. Should be given a chance to choose how their life should be. Rather than suffering like a slave. Being a victim of physical and sexual abuse. Only because she was married to a cruel man. It is far better to dump him. Escape and live independently.

In my point of view women empowerment and increasing cases of divorce are different things. Women empowerment means give them power to make them equal as their male counterpart. It is justice with them to get equal status as man in the society. Why should they bear the odd for that they are not responsible.

However increasing case of divorce is due to mismatch of couple in education, in status, in approach, family values and many more which leads to take this last step.

The argument that women empowerment is the reason for the increasing divorce rates is not entirely logically convincing because it ignores certain crucial assumptions.

Firstly, it assumes that the divorce rates were less when women were not a part of the professional/corporate world and dependent totally on their husbands in all respects. Lets discuss here first what does divorce mean? Does it necessarily mean the husband and wife separated under legal conditions? Or does it simply refers to a failed marriage? Domestic violence, ego clashes, sexual harassment-are these not the reasons of failed marriages? If yes, then these were prevalent even before the women were "empowered".

If, today, a woman is strong and independent enough to come out and demand for the separation from her husband just because she does not need her life to be miserable, we blame it on the empowerment. It is true that women have become stronger, educated and less vulnerable but the motive was never to break apart their families.

Some might argue that women empowerment leads to ego clashes between the spouses but it is equally reasonable to argue that men can't bring themselves to believe that today their wives are shoulder to shoulder with them and some in fact are even ahead of them. So, it is not the empowerment which has created the ego clashes, it is the inability of some (not all) men to adapt to the changes which have been brought about due to empowerment.

Secondly, the argument never addresses the fact that women empowerment has decreased the rate of domestic violence which ideally should be the reason for divorce. Therefore, the motives of women empowerment were never wrong but the consequences might differ as per how people expect an educated woman to be.

We are talking of Divorce. The girl did not have to give dowry and the boy did not get it personally.

So how can this reason be enough for a divorce?

Divorce is possible only if both the partners failed to reconcile their differences, whether petty or big and so both are at fault for failing to reach a reconciliation.

Even if the in-laws interfere, that is not a sufficient ground for Divorce.

I believe that apart from the misinterpretation and misuse of Empowerment regulations, there cannot be any Divorce unless the couples disagree on their partner preferences.

If any of the couple is misusing the Empowerment regulations, it is better to get Divorced than to live in pain in such an uncompromising situation.

If a parent scolds their child it is felt it is for the good of the children.

However if the in-laws even raise their concerns and share their opinion it is deemed interference and a reason enough to get Divorced - WOW, Such TRANSPARENCY AND FAITH in relations?

Women has been protected by various laws but still she was abused in the hands of man. Though there was various woman empowerment programs it does not reach ever corner of society. Too its a time for woman to understand that we can protect us from abuse and we must not misuse the acts and studies which protect us.

In the past women was not respected by any means even for her emotions. But now women takes part in all every fields and made society to feel her importance.

Every ones effort was needed to decrease divorce rate.

1) Women must stop misusing the advantages given to her.

2) Men must ever appreciate the importance of women and respect her.

3) Only the state can put active measures to decrease divorce by making people to respect our culture and teaching the importance of family and values of relationship.

Any every one can get success in personal and professional life.

Women empowerment has been misunderstood by both men and woman. And greater clarity by state will decrease the divorce rate.

Women empowerment is very very essential for a woman to live her life with self respect, dignity and independence. It makes her know her inner qualities and short falls. If I am not misunderstood woman empowerment here is not merely economic empowerment but transformation of a small childly girl to a complete independent woman empowering her with knowledge, quality of knowing herself, her wishes likes and dislikes, and of course tools to take right decision at time and more appropriately learn herself.

Dependency is a fact for all whether men or woman, married or unmarried or unmarried.

In a family generally male members does outside work and female members the household chores. So all are interdependent. In the same way in an office all staff whether male or female whether senior or junior.

I other sense dependency leads to socialisation. I think if we really learn to be social then divorces will never occur.

Coming to the main point empowerment of women.

In a family a small girl sees the outside world through the eyes of her father and brother, after marriage she depends on her husband and in her old age on her son.

Let us think of a situation when ultimately her father dies, brothers deny to look after her or either she don't get married or divorced or husband dies.

In that case she can become self sufficient to face the outside world with the tool woman empowerment.

Marriages are made in heaven.

No one knows whether a girl will get married or not but all knows she have to live her life till death.

So why not to live in her own terms and conditions.

Woman who do not have any other source of income are also facing divorce and women who though don't have any other source of income but are sufficiently wealthy with paternal wealth may also face divorce.

In my view marriage is a very sweet experience for a couple if everything is managed well or goes well. Since then divorces are occurring and will occur in future also as they have many other reasons which are of less significant here in our discussion.

A woman who have a better source of income than her husband loves to accept a gift from her husband bought from his own income and a man loves to taste a dish prepared by his wife rather how wealthy he is. This is love in marriage. Even many big woman icons would have cooked food for their husband.

I don't understand how can divorce be related with women empowerment. We need to understand society has changed. The mentality of both men and women has changed. We don't think the way our mothers or grandmothers used to think. Similarly our children won't be thinking the way we think now. Earlier there were harassment, abuse on women, dowry death.

They are still there. BUT, earlier women could not protest because economically they were dependent-before marriage on father or brother and after marriage on husband. Now there is a change. Women are getting higher education, jobs and earning as well. So its very normal that an educated woman will not tolerate any injustice or violence. Its true that some women do take advantage of law and misuse it.

But that number is nothing compared to the number of women who really suffer in marriage. Because its still the husband who gets drunk and beats his wife not the other way round, or its the wife who gets abused by husband or in laws for dowry not the husband. So divorce has its own reasons, it has nothing to do with women empowerment.

Empowerment of women, though may not be the root cause behind 'Divorce' it has encouraged women to opt for divorce more easily when compared to olden days. During male chauvinistic period, women kept to their homes and never complained of their plights. With the advent of exclusive laws, NGOs and rights activists, this has changed. Women should be given the space which she deserves. Their issues should be addressed.

But resorting to divorce at the first sight of conflict is not advisable. There may be other means to resolve their conflicts, such as approaching a counselor. Even better they themselves can arrive at a solution. Even still not satisfied, they should try to live together ignoring their differences at least for their kids to grow up.

Accroding to me,

I can't say there is no relationship between women empowerment and divorce. There is a thread relationship between them.

Women empowerment means to unlock the women from kitchen doors. And giving their own rights EQUAL TO MEN.

Divorce relates to not only women but also men. It takes place between two married couples when other destroys another's believes.

So both are different but related.

Of course. Women empowerment is cause for increasing divorce rate in India. But it is a minor cause and we should not see it as a cause because major causes like foreign culture, don't know value of Indian marriage system, lack of patience, sex are ahead. In Front of all these causes this is not a cause at all. We can say effective tool for women.

If women are empowered, they can fight for their basic human rights which many women are not getting presently. They can raise there voice against dowry, house abusement, harassment etc. ,

So women should be empowered.

They should fight in an apt way for their rights.

Well, I see here that in most of the discussion we are misreading the term "Women Empowerment". Women empowerment has noting and everything to do with the increased divorce rate. Me as an individual is not against women empowerment and strongly believed that women should be empowered. The idea is what would society give up on while empowering women. Todays trend is such where women in being empowered with draconian laws where she is being educated and taught about their rights. About what they could do with these gender biased laws. Such empowerment will lead to demolishing of Indian society. This is NOT WOMEN EMPOWERMENT.

This is why the divorce rate is increasing. When we talk about women empowerment, we need to make sure that along with their rights they should also be made aware of their duties (responsibilities). When our entire women race would understand and would religiously undertake their responsibilities then it would be real women empowerment. India has most Gender biased laws. These laws empower women to misuse them but no where do they tell these women to undertake their responsibilities. The issue is serious and thus needs a religious thought process to make sure that laws are not being misused by any one rather by any gender.

Women Empowerment is a good thing and had been started to bring the gender equality. Problem arises when the concept of empowerment takes completely wrong direction. Women empowerment means to support and let them be an individual with their own identity. But in most of the scenario this support has been misunderstood as weakness, and that is the moment when couple starts drifting apart.

Every individual wants to live their life in their own way, be it man or woman, and there is nothing wrong in that. At the same time there are some duties, either due to Indian Society norms or moral standards or ethics. Also everyone should understand that thought process of every individual is different. What is right in one's opinion not necessarily is right in another's opinion. Let's take an example from both side. A man when bachelor loves to spend times with his friends or go on long rides. Once get married it is expected from him to stop all that spend time at home with wife on weekends. A woman when bachelorette loves to dress up according to his will, shorts, minis or whatever she wants. Once married she is expected to wear saris or decent cloths.

Now a days, most of us living as a nuclear family and in laws are not a part of that, they are just visiting guests. During their visit, change in lifestyle is expected from both husband and wife. Spending time with friends or partying in the worst case by husband is wrong, he has to stop that and that too without any fuss. Fine till then. But if a husband asks his wife to not to wear inappropriate clothes (e.g. Shorts as housewear) then it's a breach of independence. It's a matter of pride for them, how can anyone judge what I should wear and what not. These are very small things in daily course of life. No one is forcing to do anything against the will of wives (now a days no one can dare to do so). But that is just a expectation that you should respect other choices sometimes, not because you have to, but because that is a culture.

It is a matter of mutual understanding. Till the time if both husband and wife know and understand the meaning of "Women Empowerment", there is no harm in that. But the day wives start misusing their empowerment (husbands even want they can't do so) , the good becomes evil.

In India Divorce is not alarming as made out.

1. Lack of basic understanding about Marital relationship- it is not Commercial or Contract.

2. Many spouses tend to think Marital relationship is a contract and expect the other spouse to act according to their perceived role.

3. Expectations from the other spouse is skyrocketing.

4. Greediness drive either of the spouse to boss over the other.

5. Lack of compassion and acceptance of other spouse as they are.

6. Mislead by Media, feminists about roles and duties.

7. Right based instead of Duty based relationship model being propagated.

8. Government intervention by way of criminalizing Marital relationship induces divorce.

9. Insecurity of old age among the parents of spouses leads encouragement of Divorce.

10. ME ME syndrome among spouses.

11 Spouses do not believe being a Home maker ad lazying around is a Luxury.

12. Slaving at office for the benefit of MNC bosses is perceived to be preferable than doing Domestic work, cooking, cleaning at your choice:

Is Slaving better than Luxury!

13. Dissatisfaction in insatiable sex life.

If spouses grow up and think that they responsible for any breakup, Divorce will come down.

Women Empowerment can't be a reason if is goes in right direction.

But unfortunately in India on the name of women empowerment a lot of criminal activities going on and most of them supported by Indian Judiciary. Just for example today in one of the case one lady's lie was proved and what court asked her to do ? virtually nothing and for equal or very small reason husband and his family sent to jail.

Until the real equality is provided and real criminals (does not matter wife or husband) are punished equally there is no way to stop.

Still one question in mind why I should worry about rising divorce rate when I am saying in current scenario there is no scope for marriage.

The main reason for divorce nowadays is over expectations from girls from in laws and husband. They are expected to be educated and then sacrifice their careers which they have made with equal efforts as men have and confine themselves to home only.

They are expected to lead their life according to the wishes of their mother in laws who expect them to forget what they were before marriage and become housewifes for their beloved sons who even don't know how to behave with the girls parents. Men and their families behave as if they have some favour on the girl by marrying her and this is true for even girls educated more than their husbands. Men need to understand that women are not born to serve them for life, they are human beings too with feelings and ambitions of their own.

Women empowerment has only emboldened women to discontinue a relationship, she can't stand anymore. In earlier times, women when exploited, molested, used and fallen victim to domestic violence due to the misconduct of her husband or matters like dowry, she had no option but to bear all troubles. Empowerment and awareness has brought about an egalitarian situation wherein, the women have found a place for themselves in the society.

I think women empowerment just plays a initial role for the breakup only in couples who doesn't have understanding but it doesn't affect those who understand and love each other, even though there are lots of other reasons that leads to divorce, for example; desire to be independent, getting attracted to another person, infidelity, physical incompatibility, less attracted to the person in sexual way, conflict in tastes and desire, continuous nagging, comparing the the man or women constantly, imparting unsolicited advice all the time, addiction to alcohol.

The above reasons are all chief causes for a marriage breakup. Sometimes, one reason alone might be enough for separation, while in several cases, a combination of a few of them lead to divorce. In this list, getting attracted to another person and infidelity might appear similar, but there is one important difference between them. In the former, the man or the woman might become more interested in another person and might think of leading a life of marriage with that person as a better option to the current life. In this case, the decision for separation from the present spouse could be taken before a physical contact with the other person. On the other hand, infidelity is actual extra-marital relationship, which is a sure marriage breaker in several cases.

In certain marriages, when the man and woman become united without a physical relationship before the marriage, the physical incompatibility might become apparent when the marriage is consummated, leading to separation. Similarly, the impotency in man or the inability of the woman to bear a child either immediately after the marriage or after several years could result in a divorce. The reduction in physical desire after a few years had also been a cause for the breakup of the marriage. If the health of the man or the woman deteriorates sharply or if they contract incurable diseases like HIV, the marriage might fail. Even the neglect by a spouse of maintaining the physical fitness and becoming too fat or too weak could break a marriage.

Physical and mental abuse is another major reason for divorces. Sadistic tendencies in either spouse that lead to continuous physical or mental torture usually ends in parting of ways.

Finally, the financial independence achieved by women had brought in a change in their attitude. They feel that their individuality must be respected and should not be interfered with. Their economic dependence on men is much less or non-existent compared to olden days when women stayed at home. Further, the separate careers result in men and women working in different places, thus increasing not only the physical distance but also the mental distance. This invariably leads to separation. All these causes, either singly or in combination, end up in the couple breaking up. However, an understanding approach and a give-and-take policy would avoid divorces, if both men and women take a more tolerant attitude.

According to me, there is no relation between women's empowerment and divorce cases as,

WOMAN EMPOWERMENT means providing women equal rights in the society as of men, providing woman to move hand to hand with man, it means that the women of the nation be given equal respect and equal rights when it comes to their financial development, Job Security etc.


DIVORCE take place due to the lack of mutual understanding between husband and wife. The man always has domineering nature and the main problem is with egoism, when a woman start earning equal or sometimes more than a husband and start taking some decisions by her own, it hurts man egoism an he feel jealous of it. And at the same time woman think after doing all the household works and contributing financially, why she should be humiliated on the contrary she must get respect for that. But when man unable to feel her feelings it results into the lacking of fruit fullness in their relations and they decide for DIVORCE, bloody divorce".

Women Empowerment is not the reason for divorce. It's the fact that women have finally realised they are no less than their husbands and they deserve equal rights and equal respect. Divorce happens because the husband's cannot accept this fact. They have been raised with the idea that their wife is their subordinate and when a women asks for equal respect, they are lost. Women have started questioning their unequal place in the marriage and have realised they don't have to live like slaves. They have also realised that it takes two to make a marriage work.

According to me woman empowerment does not lead to increase in divorce rates. Nowadays women empowerment is very essential.

Firstly due to inflation in today world both husband and wife are working and it gives financial stability to family. If woman is educated and working she have more exposure to outside world and by this she can teach their children very good. We have many examples in today world where woman is working shoulder to shoulder with man. And if we are talking about divorce cases than in previous times also there are divorce and divorce is basically due to lack of understanding and trust and not because of woman empowerment. And as women naturally have multitasking skills today most of woman are working and they are striking a perfect balance between between personal and professional life.

It is depend on thinking of man and woman how they are think about each other. If they are good thinking about each other then there is no divorce between man and woman.

Well. There are so many things that can be said about Women empowerment. Obviously it is a good thing and a good sign for the nation in totality but all my dear friends speaking their minds up there. You should evaluate both the sides of the coin before arriving to any conclusion because we cannot afford to be irrational on this particular subject. Lets evaluate.

Women Empowerment means.

1. Women getting to know about their rights and raising their voice to a firm NO " IF" they are genuinely being mistreated.

2. Women Empowerment means that Women have the equal right to education, jobs, Independence on the pretext of bringing equality to this Nation " INDIA".

3. Women Empowerment means that the women of the nation be given equal respect and equal rights when it comes to their financial development, Job Security etc.

4. Women empowerment means that the women walks hand to hand and at par with the man and need not fear anything from criminal minded men who have the bloody audacity to treat them the way they want.

5. Women empowerment means raising a voice against the injustice at the hands of the inhumane man who genuinely subjects her to mental and physical torture / trauma.

BUT BUT BUT. Is this really where we are actually heading to. Think again fellas.

Women Empowerment does not mean :.

1. Women taking undue advantage of the LAW which have been Framed to protect them. This major out break where the women have started to misuse the LAWS has put this INDIAN nation on a tremendous back foot to which many International Organizations like WHO etc have - for all matter - given their acknowledgment.

2. Women Empowerment does not mean that they can treat the genuinely innocent MAN the way they want. It definitely does not mean hostility towards the other sex.

3. It definitely does not mean trying to chop of the hand which has been supportive of them whereas the latter means walking hand in hand with the male counterpart.

4. It really does not mean threatening and extorting money from an innocent family who have only tried to make the daughter in law feel at home.

5. Just because the damn LAW favors them a woman should not be entitled to take guise under it and harass innocent families or for that matter. MALES.

I can just go on and on and on.

The truth is in fact otherwise. The benefits of Women Empowerment are far less as compared to the latter's misuse. Its not the Women Empowerment which is leading to Divorces. But the misuse of the same. Why do females do it. I fail to understand. The Women Empowerment have for all matter. Made the Woman more self Dependent and INTOLERANT. The moment a marriage gets sour on the pretext of in comparability and various other reasons (Not Covered under the LAW). No attempts are made to improve the situation. BUT BULLETS ARE FIRED from the well known battle ship called " 498A".

AM not a Feminist or an Anti Feminist. Neither do I favor the girl nor the boy. I favor Justice and strict penalties should be imposed towards the defaulter be it the girl or the boy. If a boy it genuinely at fault. Penalize him. If the girl is at fault, Penalize her.

Folks, the rise in no of Matrimonial disputes is certainly disrupting the balance of the nation. Do your bit to reduce it. My dear future would be Daughter in LAWS. Don't tolerate injustice. Raise your voice if genuinely you are being harassed for Dowry and are being mistreated on the account of it. Be more tolerant and be more adjusting because the culture of your matrimonial home shall be different from your maternal home. Boys. Make the new member of the family feel at home. Be Welcoming. LOVE HER. And yes. If you think you don't have to make any adjustments. Think again. Its your responsibility to take care of her. Don't make a mountain out of a mole hill. Sort things amicably both of you. Respect thy Elders. And girls. Your new Home is the place where you intend to spend the rest of your life. Maintain the equilibrium and for god's sake. Please please please. Never take guise under the dreaded LAWS, cause once you do it. You can't return to mend your marriage.

YOU ARE THE FUTURE OF THE COUNTRY. India is already plagued and paralyzed with terrorism, Corruption, Inflation, Hostile neighboring countries, Malnutrition etc. Please do not let 498A be an out break of another epidemic which will only make the commoner and the innocent men in a compelling position to pick up arms. Its already started. Lets be reasonable.

I don't agree that divorce rates are increasing due to women empowerment. Women empowerment is basically making a woman aware of her rights. It gives her equal rights equivalent to her male counterpart. It makes woman at par with men. It educates a woman and makes her realize her importance in the society. It raises a women's self confidence and makes her believe in herself that she is no less than men.

Its got nothing to do with the increased number of divorces. A divorce is caused due to lack of understanding, love and trust between the partners. If there is substantial amount of trust between a couple then there will never be any misunderstanding.

Women might have become modern but they still long for a happy marriage and children. Hence they will never let go a marriage futile just like that.

In words of Swami Vivekananda "The can be no development of the society unless the condition of women is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly with one wing". Thus it is imperative to educate women about there social and legal rights. Women empowerment has lead to overall increase in the education and development of women across various section of the society. However, it would be extremely wrong to say that women empowerment has any negative impact of the institution of marriage. Though, overall the percentage of working women has increase substantially, I do not feel it has caused women to be more egoistic or stubborn. Women have the same right as men to be self-reliant and independent.

According to me, the main cause for such the increasing rate of divorces is the weakening value systems of our society. The family units size is getting smaller in number. There are no elders to guide or console the couples in case they hit a rough patch in there relationship. Further, individuals both men and women alike are loosing patience and tolerance. With the increase exposure to western culture the idea of getting divorced is getting too generalized. So there is a need to increase our efforts to maintain understanding between partners as in any other relation such as siblings or parents and children. We in no way can question the positive impact of women empowerment on society and blame it for the increasing rates of divorces.

I think women empowerment may not be the only cause but surely is one of the reasons. No one in the society want to think that women empowerment means women should be given their rights and respect. Women empowerment always meant that women should get education, job and salary which brings her respect.

If in a family, if the husband leaves his ego when it comes to wife, respects her and consults her for all the problems and decisions he face and the wife does the same thing towards her husband, then in that family women empowerment doesn't have any meaning. Because both are giving respect to each other and that's what basically women empowerment means.

I do feel that the job which the women gets will sow a seed of ego in her heart. The job also makes her feel independent and in some women this independence may lead them to a wrong notion that she can live without her husband. This may lead to divorce.

That couple who understands each other, solve any problems among themselves will lead them to a successful life and it doesn't depend on whether that men or women has a job or not.

This topic should be seen by the positive aspect. It is not just that the women's are now more aware of their rights, this is the sole reason for increment in divorce rates. Earlier women's used to bear a lot of thing morally, socially, Physically, without saying a word. But now the scenario has changed, by many campaigns, social media, social awareness now the women's are more awarded, started raising their voices- which should be. So if it is resulting in increasing of divorce cases it should not the matter of concern. There is a need for a behavioral change towards women from the man's side. There is a need to understand the feelings and emotions of Women, they should not be treated as a machine, rather they are the HOME MAKERS. Women's makes the future of children by inculcating the true values and ethics in them. For children their Parents are their first Mentor.

Women empowerment is definitely not the root cause behind the increasing rate of divorces in the country. What women empowerment does is, it just aware women about their rights and what they are worth. It provides them with equal rights which men use to enjoy alone. And speaking of increasing divorce rate, its all about the mutual understanding between a couple. If a person doesn't respect the views of his/her partner then its quite obvious that there will be problems in their relation. Only women are not responsible for it men are equally countable.

Women empowerment is not responsible for increase in divorce. In old India gals/women's avoiding divorce because no family support and no economical support. Nowadays things are changing in India, most of girls (mostly in city areas) have strong family support. They don't feel alone. They are self-dependent.

Well I think divorce rates are increasing after women empowerment came because women have started understanding there rights and now they have understood there values and started saying NO to all the sufferings men given them in the name of marriage.

Before women empowerment women were been considered as the weaker sex have no human value, and been equally treated as pets and married women were the fair example.

Even though women were educated, going to work, take good care of children single handed, cleaning the house, making three to 5 course meals everyday without fail (no sick leaves) and without getting any attention from her spouse. The more women serve there partner the more they were considered as animals, with no respect at all.

Therefore when this women empowerment came into picture women started getting the voice. Who were actually need to be respected for doing such kind of sacrifices for the entire family shall not be treated like that.

All the hypocrites men above why don't they feel happy about the empowerment because there daughter, sisters are also going to get the benefit.

Because here comes the law of nature made by the MCPs women are weak so how can they tolerate by seeing them getting equal.

This law is made to give equal share to the women that men were enjoying alone before.

So grow up guys. Time is changing.

Women must be given education, allowed to work but only as supportive to the family but not to satisfy their egoistic aspirations. I think there is a limit to women empowerment after which it becomes detrimental to the very fabric of society unit. A good old traditional family is needed but with enough respect for women, their needs and well being. Our society is undergoing the same societal transformation which the western societies have undergone because of modernization. And those brainy westerners are now scratching their heads for a solution for breakdown of family unit in their nations. Individual is important but much more important is society and the healthy perpetuation of our species. Let us become modern in our own Indian way. Let us be original at least in this and blindly ape the westerners.

Indian society is male dominant and feudalistic, where women are not only looked down upon, but also widely discriminated against. Women are denied basic social and domestic rights due to gender bias. Many women are illiterate, underprivileged, exploited sexually and otherwise treated in an unfair manner due to an orthodox mindset. There were 927 females to every 1000 males in India as per the 1992 census. The ratio was 972 to 1000 in 1901.

This suggests that gender bias and female infanticide has only been growing in the society. While the preference for a son over a daughter is well known, killing of female fetus in the womb is an extremely horrifying practice that still continues. In India there is a rape every 54 minutes, a molestation every 26 minutes, an act of cruelty every 33 minutes, and a dowry death every hour. Every year 75000 women die due to unsafe abortions.

Empowerment of women in the real sense is the need of the hour. It is the high time that women are allowed into the political mainstream. If the women are given their due status in personal, family and social spheres, it would be a positive step benefiting all sections of society. In order to empower women, they should have reservation of seats in educational institutions, employment and services. The empowerment of women and real social development are inter-related. No country can progress so long as the women of the nation remain illiterate.

I think divorce rate is increasing because women are increasingly becoming less dependent on men not only for money, but also for emotional needs. Earlier men used to make all household decisions for women. Women only used to manage those decisions/ actions. Since dependence on men is decreasing, women no longer feel the need for men. They have learned to make their own decisions and manage them now.

I believe that women empowerment has been tremendously instrumental in bringing awareness of rights and opportunities to women. As the sense of high self-esteem has grown stronger, the today's women are not ready to suffer and compromise with the marriage that is based on male's superior role. Due to the increasing presence of the women on civil, political, professional and social platforms, they can no more stick to their traditional role as a homemaker or give more time to it. The result is dissatisfaction of both the spouses. The husbands emphasize on her duties whereas the wives wants to reach out. The wife who is educationally sound and financially well off, does not see the requirement of clinging on to the troubled marriage. The husband cannot see more beyond his male ego or equally participate in household responsibilities. And so, I guess people turn to divorce as easy option to put an end to their continuous worries.

While the goal of women empowerment aims at equality of status and opportunities to women, the patriarchal social set is lagging far behind to understand the objective behind it. Hope to have this gap reduced in near future.

This is what it comes down to :.

As women empowerment increase, women expectations from a marriage will increase as well. As expectations increase, it will be harder for men to fulfill their needs and please them. Women will be more and more the chooser in a relationship. Also, because women will have the upper hand as they get more empowered, they will also have more control over whether they want to divorce or not. And most likely they will want to divorce more as men will have a harder time fulfilling their expectations.

More divorce leads to more expenses from the men's side as there is still a double standard especially in Asian culture. Even though women want all the empowerment, men are still expected to pay for the house, car, wedding, etc. Women usually come into the marriage with nothing.

As expenses from the men increase over divorces, men will shun this marriage institution and will seek their mate based on a dollar worth value. This leads to prostitution. Men will seek short term relationship that minimizes potential financial damage in the long run.

As prostitution thrives, women from poorer less empowered countries will supply the demand.

The question becomes, which is faster? Empowerment or Prostitution?

In the long run, assuming ALL women become empowered, men must advance technology to make women robots that is a perfect replica of a human female. Then we will no longer need female. We will stop procreating, men will just have sex with robots. Likewise women will have sex with robots.

Procreation stops, we all perish.

So, conclusion, don't empower women.

And women also feel that after doing all the domestic work and also contributing her earning to the family why she should be humiliated on the contrary she must be respected..and at last due to all egoism, suspiciousness and not proper harmony between the two there lies just one fact and that is DIVORCE....

Women have always been for the family, whether educated or illiterate, she always strives hard for the betterment of her family, either before or after marriage.

Empowerment would only add more to her contribution.

It is infact the perception that makes all the difference. Though men talk about the liberation of women, women being educated and earning, the male ego never allows them to accept women being superior. They want the woman to work and earn for the family, but when it comes to domestic chores, they term it as woman's job. There is no help from man.

The modern woman has to perform many more roles at home and at work place. She will be happy to give her everything for the family, all that she wants back is only a word of support.

I feel that women empowerment can never be a cause of divorce. It is the communication and mutual respect that strengthens any relation. Man and woman can live in harmony and work for better society.

Increasing Divorce Rate in India is totally wrong and false saying. Women are the most important part of this society and for divorce always women are not respobsible. If a woman is educated than he understand the feelings of her family and her husband she can easily understand all the things compared to one who is illitrate. Whenever we see quarrel in the family of anyone there is the little thing which can't understand by the one who illiterate an educated or understanding woman also give something to her family for learn. And she is not the reason for divorce so empowerment of woman is necessary. Divorce is also there between uneducated woman.

Most men have always liked to be the ruling force in the house and the office. Women empowerment gives women something to think about themselves and launch themselves into different fields ranging from politics, sports, entrepreneur.

Men have a problem because they can not stand women at an equal footing. I think women should be encouraged to take up as much responsibility towards the society as some of the arrogant men, and indeed more.

Regarding divorce, would the situation be any different if the roles were reversed, men were subdued and women were in power through the ages? I think not.

I would say that there is no patience in this generation to tolerate there own spouse. Each & every couple fight / argue. Don't own siblings fight / argue. Every time do we separate from our siblings no right. Still there is a relation & in sad /happy times we meet greet each other. Because there is no such thing called as divorce among siblings. So it is just that we are angry with each other & don't want to talk to each other for sometime. This time is not defined. It can be days/ month / years. As the time passes by and when we cross each others road we talk to each other. Till now I am speaking about siblings.

Now coming to relation between partners. When there is a fight / argument. The couples don't have patience to tolerate each other. Now lets find the reason why they don't have patience to tolerate, Because both of them are earning and financially independent. Since financial security is very important. And now that they are financially secured / independent. Spouses take a decision, lets get divorced. And they get divorced. Not this is documented in the government and they are legally divorced. In future when they cross each others road, they cannot talk to each other and be one again. Second point. 50 years back. Women were not working they were financially dependent and there were family values hence there were less number of divorces. Now because of these mobile phone. Even if the couple have a small argument in late night. Women communicates with her family members immediately on mobile phone & she has her family to take her back to her within minutes. If these phones were not there. I am sure, there would be at-least little time for the couple to calm down, think and take a decision. Once the women steps out of the house. Man feels that he is not been respected and become more angry and it results in divorce. Instead of the situation coming in control, it goes out of control. Hence divorce rate is increasing.

I would say these are the negative point of a working women and the mobile phones. But again, we require working women for the family to be financially stable and give good education to children.

Then what is the problem? I think problem is our patience / tolerance level. We need to learn to tolerate. Not take decisions immediately. That doesn't mean that you try for 5 to 6 years and give up & get divorced. You should try and try again to maintain / retain / save your marriage at-least for children sake.

Men always like to be the masters and if his wife is getting more importance than him then he gets frustrated and jealous. Today in this world of socialization women are active in their respective fields and they are not dependent on anybody else for their livelihood.

A Woman plays many roles in her life, she is a caring mother, wife, daughter etc. Still men expect a lot from them. At the end everything depends on understanding each other, caring for each other, giving time and respecting each others. Women empowerment is necessary and will continue. That's all I want to say.

Its depend on mentality of both man and woman. There should be a combination. There is come problem of ego. They don't want listen each other. There is misunderstanding between them. They have bad manner. They don't belong to good family. Women empowerment is good thing but should be limitation. This is the democracy country women are also having her right. Now it become a modern India everything is possible in now a days. If we get a married we should know she is coming in our home. She has her right. We can't torture her. If we do this we are fool.

Men are born stronger they do all the hard work outside, earn money no one realizes how a man earns the money for his family, protects the family. With empowerment of women work n they expect their husbands to work at home also if not spend money and make sure wife doesn't have the pain to do basic work at home. I appreciate both helping each other at home but not only husband doing all work even at home. If husband's parents come to visit their son and daughter in law problem starts if husband's parents don't go away then sue them with "false Dowry cases" or other "women biased laws" of India. And worse mother in law of husband they create more problems and make their own laws in the name of Empowerment.

Bottom line is Evolution made men stronger to do all outside work protect his family if a man does all such work whose work is to take care of family? Is it Man's fault that he is stronger than women?

I do agree women must be given freedom but women also must understand that a men must be respected also. Clashes will happen more with empowerment of women in the future as govt is trying to change the evolution.

To say that women empowerment is a cause for divorce itself is utter nonsense. Even in this juncture women are being blamed for the increased rates in divorce! so Lame!

Couples generally go for divorce when they had enough of each other's complexes and tantrums and to blame it on the female population is simply wrong. I believe that people should be free to live his/her life without being judged by others. Women has low self esteem compared to men. Women empowerment will boost it and they could be more useful to society once they see their hidden potentials.

In our society, marriage is seriously "overrated" and divorce is condemned. And when a girl take such a step as ending a marriage it's like world war III. Such an attitude should be avoided by the coming generations at-least.

Women empowerment is not about getting away from husbands by divorces or getting a job or feminism, it's about standing for oneself; fighting for what you believe in and having the strength to follow your dreams. That's women empowerment for me and I hope some day everyone would see it that way.

There is a guide for everything. There are best practices in every field. One should know that and one should read it to live happy life and to work successfully in the organization. Without knowing the right principles, rules, guidelines one can not lead the life in correct way.

To live the life happily one should follow the rules posed by Hindhu Dharma- What is written in Vedas, Itihasa, Puranas.

To achieve great success in career one should follow the rules of Organization- what is written in your business conduct guidelines, policies.

As per our Hindhu Dharma, A man should work hard and earn money, A woman should be a good home maker, Look after kids, Elders, Parents thus should be role model in society. But the whole Scenario is changed just because of some few bad males done bad to some good females. The rules have been ignored and the rules have been violated and kept aside. I agree, Woman were suppressed by Men but not all in the case. Just for the sake of such few Men why the Whole Dharma/Rules have been ignored ? and transformed ? If you have a diseased hand then cut the hand don't die yourself by putting whole body in fire. This is what happened and happening now. Some people started freedom fight stating "woman needs freedom" but the actual statement should be. Not all woman needs freedom. The only affected woman needs freedom. That is the reality.

We can not say women empowerment is a cause behind increasing rates of divorce. Increasing rate of divorce is nothing but the result of lack of mutual understanding between husband and wife, lack of positive support to woman's progress and achievements in her field of career etc. Empowerment of women provides an overall development of a woman in the field of education, self-grooming, choice of career, caring her children and family etc. Empowerment in all these fields is actually making a woman become more capable of doing each and everything that one man could do. Only the problem is that many of the times, men's possessiveness, their dark shaded thoughts with full of jealous are making women to feel that "no, I'm the one who is responsible for everything!".
