    • Does anyone know what the divorce rates for Sikhs are? In general in mainstream society they quote that the figure is around 40 to 50 percent and 70 -80 percent is initiated by women. In society, less people are getting married. Many men are dropping out of the marriage game because they don't see it as worth it. Women do not need men as much in the traditional sense as they used to. Men are no longer the main breadwinners. There are going to be repercussions in society.

      As per my knowledge, I agree with the above. S1ngh Bhaji, according to Jagsaw Singh, all of us that replied to OP were gullible and that the post was a troll post. Well, I have only recently started extensively reading posts and reply to posts on this forum. So, I am new to all this and don't have experience figuring out whether a post is a genuine one or a troll one. Though, I wonder if it was a troll or not?

      Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh.  I've come across many videos on youtube, that its not a good thing to take stress. And well it does make sense even outside as well as inside Gurmat preaching, to not stress about anything. Stress comes and goes in life, and what's more important is to live in the present and jap naam, to purify yourself from the inside and live a life full of pure actions.  And if someone has ever seen videos of the channel Nanak Naam (on youtube), they do great parchaar of Gurmat, and I've even had them say (preach according to Gurmat) that there is no good and there is no bad. Also, dukh (sorrow) and happiness are just things made by mind. Good and bad is just labels that our mind puts on things/events in life. But in reality (according to Gurbani), seeing things as good and bad (happening to you) is what keeps us feeling separated from God, and basically it is all just hukam. If we look at life events as good or bad (in dukh or happiness), we are basically saying "Why is this happening to me?" and speaking against the hukam (will) of the Oneness.  And all that makes perfect sense (agree to it) when I listen to their parchaar and it is something quite extraordinary (though hard to wrap your mind around at first go). But my question is, What does one do when he has physical discomfort (or a disease not big enough to kill him, but keep him in stress always, hindering his very ability to focus on his day to day life chores). And even doctors and medicines can't do anything about it, and he prays, but his prayers (bentiyan) are not strong (or effective) enough. What do we do when all our tries go in vain? And it's not like I don't trust what our Gurus said. Of course I do. But if honest bentiyan(requests in the form of prayers or the like) are just not working, what do we do then? Do we just keep on trying/do the same? Or do we accept it as hukam and that the disease is never gonna leave my body? How do we know when our prayers would get fulfilled?  Please help, I'm kind of in the dark here. And I'm sorry if I said anything wrong. WJKK WJKF 
    • possibly the guys need to actually act like sikh husbands should gurbani anusar then the marriages would have a better rate of success. i.e. no muh fitkarna, no beating or harassing, day on day increasing love for his wife , honouring and respecting her as she respects him . bibian need to drop the bollywood fantasy and the western high maintenance paths both lead to narak let alone destroy families. They need to return to developing their awareness of consequences and be the conscience and reminder of the family of things gursikh . So many bhagats and mahapurakhs had said their mother was their first encourager to do bhagti and to do sewa...
    • Disturbing Muslim immigration and demographics in Birmingham, its a hot bed of islamification over the decades. Long term strategy is quite clear take over towns and cities by sheer numbers and destroy non-muslim populations, societies and eventually nations through the votebank politics by stealth.
