No one would deny that Indian parents strive hard to control their kids’ lives. From school to college, to the person that we want to marry – majorly all the decisions of our lives are highly influenced by our parents. Some parents are so controlling that they tend to interfere not only in their kids’ life, but also their spouse. These controlling parents are the reason why there are so many unhappy couples around us.
Recently, a guy wrote a powerful note on Reddit about controlling parents that captured attention of many. He shared how kids of controlling parents should not get married to someone against their wishes, as it would make their spouse’s life “hell after marriage.”
Have a look at the post here:
Many netizens came forward to express their agreement to the post. However, some pointed out how controlling parents end up making things difficult for their kids’ spouses irrespective of whether they chose them or not.
Many even shared experiences from their own lives:
It is heartbreaking how even in the 21st century, many couples live an unhappy marriage because of overbearing and controlling parents. It is high time that parents need to learn to let go. They need to understand that their kids don’t owe them anything. They need to learn the art of finding love in the detachment from their kids.
