Even in the 21st century, women are put under pressure to get married and settle down as soon as they turn 20. Sadly, many families across the world believe that only married women are prosperous, settled, and successful. Whereas unmarried women in their 30s are perceived as failures, irrespective of their professional success!
It is heartbreaking how we are still stopping our women from leading life on their own terms. Recently, women on Reddit have been sharing their real stories of how our society pressurizes them to settle down by a certain age, even if they are not ready!
From families shaming them for being single, to being the victim of nosy relatives, here are some of the hurtful yet real stories that show why we need to change as a society.
These real incidents are hurtful, disappointing, and disgusting. It shows how we force our daughters into marriage and having kids just because we want them to live life as per society’s set norms! We wish parents would understand that a happy daughter is better than a married and unhappy one! And, life is not just about marital status.
