Divorced and Happy? A Bright Side to Rising Divorce Rates in India
Divorce rates in India appear to be rising. In 2004, the capital city of Delhi had only three courts for divorce cases. Today, the number has increased to 17. While this might worry some, there’s a bright side to it, too. According to media reports, an increasing number of women are filing for divorce, which shows they are economically stronger and that society, at least in big cities, is now more accepting of divorced women. In this video, a young mother, Rosy Kaur, expresses happiness as she awaits the final court order for her divorce. A woman should easily be able to opt out of a marriage if she has legitimate reasons, she says.
