While talking to one old widower and another old widow, the idea of this post came
Most of the ladies love and pamper their husbands to no limits, they take care of him (husband),look after his medicines, keep an eye on his movements, monitor his intake of foods, help him select his clothes etc etc. control his cholesterol, sugar , force him to go for walks . In general the wife makes the husband totally dependent on her.
They will rush home after any outing – “he must have come home, I have to give him his tea “
The wife always says “I want to die before my husband, Suhagan marna chahti hu”.
Has she ever thought that if she dies before the husband who will take care of him once she goes? She has made him so much dependent on her, rather made him handicapped to the extent that he will not take his medicine on his own.
Doesn’t she realize that once she dies the husband will be left alone with no one to take care of him, give him medicines?
How can the same woman who can’t bear the thought of leaving her husband alone for a single day think about leaving him for a lonely life without her?
Actually the best solution to save the old couples from depression because of death of the partner, the couple should die together so that no one suffers the loneliness, the feeling of left alone, the isolation and the depression
