Divorce

A quick question. Having recently gone through divorce and seeing that lots of people are getting divorced these days, is there still a stigma attached to divorce? Also is it worse for men or woman.

For all going through this unpleasant life event, have hope and remember that no good marriage ever ended in divorce. There is always something better just around the corner, it takes time to heal but time really is the key.

Me personally have chosen to remain single and avoid relations with woman is a new phenomenon called MGTOW men going there own way. Men historically have always gone their own way however with western marriage law and post modern feminism marriage is just not a good deal for men. If the relationship goes wrong (50% of marriages in UK end in divorce) then men risk losing there home money and any reasonable access to see their children. Marriage is a business contract that is about money, this is why if it goes to divorce then all it is about the money. Sad state of affairs. I honestly feel sorry for people that are getting married these days, everyone congratulates but I want to tell them to do it.

Now I follow my passions and enjoy my life without conflict I choose what I want to do when I want to do it. I help lots of people in my community and the best bit is that i can see my family and friends when I choose and my money is mine.

Has anyone else chosen a going your own way life? It does not matter is female or male as both can choose to live this life.

I can't help with the divorce part, but you should feel free to live your life however you feel will be most beneficial to everyone. It should be the same for both genders.

Just be sure to not let bitterness consume you. Whilst the MGTOW lifestyle is great in theory, I've observed it's attracting a lot of angry, twisted men who lack any semblance of perspective and balance... a bit like the feminists they deride, lol! That's where Sikhi comes into play IMO, but you may disagree.

This is a personal question so feel free not to respond, but will you be forgoing all relations with the opposite sex (you know what I'm referring to), or will you operate a no-strings policy?

Open question, is it possible to have an Anand Karaj without signing a marriage contract or having a government registrar present?

That sounds like the ideal to me. Your marriage is sanctified by your Guru, and you aren't subject to the anti-male legal clauses of marriage should you choose to divorce later on.

Honestly though, I'm a bit flabbergasted that men continue to get hitched when they know that there is a 50% chance that they will eventually get divorced and lose their kids and half their junk. If you were skydiving and you were told that there was a 50% chance your parachute wouldn't open, would you take the jump?

There's something similar in Sharia that's getting some bad press lately. Apparently, it's possible for a Muslim male to divorce his wife - from a religious Islamic perspective - by saying talaaq three times (not all at once; some guys use the first utterance of the word as a warning to the wife to buck up her ideas. The third time is supposedly the clincher), as long as the nikaah hasn't been registered legally of course. The system is open to abuse as has been evidenced by a few instances where the wife has gone to a Sharia hearing for a ruling from an Islamic scholar, in which instance the feeling is that the judgement almost always emerges in favour of the guy.

Invariably, there's a few Muslim feminist types that have brought this to the attention of the western media with the obvious response being how despicably misogynistic the whole thing is for the wife. The last time I heard there may have been a legal ruling in the UK that insisted Islamic marriages must be registered, I could be wrong though.

That shouldn't be as funny as it is.

Well I guess if they've implemented compulsory registration for Muslim marriages, they're bound to have done it for everyone else as well in keeping with political correctness. Damn it, marriage was just beginning to seem bearable.

Lmao, reading it back now it does seem funny.

There was a very interesting documentary on the very subject a few years back on the BBC. I think there's something quite similar in the Jewish religion too - minus the talaaq - whereby some women are divorced by their husband, and the woman is left in a strange religious wilderness where she can't remarry until a certain condition is fulfilled by her ex-husband or something like that. Some of these Jewish women were waiting for 10, 15 years for the proper dispensation to move on, although I did notice in the Jewish instances the rabbis were a lot more sympathetic to the female's cause compared to the imams who were... let's say non-plussed, hehe.

There was one Muslim lad from the north of England who didn't get on with his missus (she was UK born), and he texted her 'talaaq, talaaq, talaaq' to instigate the Sharia divorce, lol. Cheeky sod.

If you are living with someone outside marriage then you in fact will become a comman in law wife/husband. They can still get all your junk especially if children are involved. The only difference is that in the eyes of the law you won't have to seek divorce. However financials will be fought over.

I love woman but I just do not want to be married or in a relationship as anyone that is married can verify that relationship come with a lot of nonsense. The problem is that we in the west have reached a very confused period for younger people.

I don't know many people that have not regretted getting married to make their families happy and stay in unhappy marriages for the fear of what will everyone say. This is the problem with our society is that we are too concerned about what people will say.

I see miserable married men and woman everyday.

Someone asked if have anything to do with woman, well let's just say I have very close female friends. Plus I love my mum.

Whether you are married or in Live-in relation, any partner can claim funds from other as per law.

Shariah is only applicable in Muslim countries or practiced by low class.

Sheikhs have hundreds of wives or partners, can anyone enforce Islamic law on them !

Maybe prenuptial agreements is the answer for the Sikh community. I certainly will be suggesting this to my daughters before they marry as they will have property in their own names before they get married and will need to protect their interests should the unimaginable happen.. My son too of course......

So sad to hear men also be so negative about marriages. I thought it was just women that spoke like that. Nevertheless guys you do need to acknowledge that the majority of break ups are caused by Unreasonable behaviour from the male spouses which is why its almost always the women who are initiating the divorce and bearing the brunt of the legal costs. Men have a misconception that women largely take great pleasure in the divorce process and look forward to a single life but you are so wrong.....ask any guy who has had to endure the torture of supporting his sister to divorce her husband of 23 years after he was caught having extra marital affairs by his teenage children. Ask my brother.

Ask any single woman if she enjoys being a single parent and having no adult companionship to share her woes with.....its the hardest mountain to climb and the most courageous thing to do.

Dear Surinder Kaur

Don't think that the problem is gender based it really depends who is on the receiving end. With lame law and twisted people the balance of the equation can be easily tipped in the wrong direction. I am separated male after marriage of more than 10 years and worst thing (or best) I am left on my own in this country as my family is back in India. As kids are involved I can not simply pack my bags and go.

Ex has been playing dirty tricks and only let me meet kids only couple of times in the month so that she can get the "larger" share of finances.

Sometimes it looks like just wasted this life for nothing!

Thanks

And your story is subjective to your circumstances. I acknowledge that a lot of women may avenge their ex husband's bad behaviour during marriage by using the only tool left available to them - The children. This is so wrong on so many levels and those women will regret their behaviour years later when the anger and bitterness subsides and the grown up children start questioning why they don't see their dad.

However I have not resorted to this kind of behaviour and I have encouraged contact between my children and their father on a weekly basis, even when their father doesn't want to see them through arrogance I will drop them to his house and pick them up. People in the community tell me that I am being too generous and fair and that how could I even allow him to see the children after what he did to me. Well my answer to that is that Waheguru presented the truth to me in such a way that the only route left to us was divorce and we divorced each other but we didn't divorce the children from ourselves. We became divorced single people but we will always remain parents regardless of the practicalities of where those children live and whose care they are in. I spent most of my life without a father as he died when I was young and I missed him every single day - I never want my children to feel that they cant see or spend time with their father while he is still living and breathing because their is no replacement for him.

Finally, please my friend don't feel bitter about where the children reside and finances etc, it is completely logically for the parent providing the majority of care to receive the most financial help. People don't take into account all the elements of that care a single parent provides to their children. its not just the obvious in terms of food, clothes, paying bills, mortgage, uniform, school trips, school lunches, books, university costs, travel but its also the emotional burden where by you have to fulfil the absent parents role too. The absent parent doesn't get the ups and downs of the child's emotional state, the dramas that have to be resolved in the middle of the night, the missing homework, the broken down laptop, transporting the children at all hours of the day, the school parent evenings, the stress of exams, bickering between the children, demands for things that their friends have.. I could go on and on...

Believe me its not easy being the main carer for the children and having custody.

I wish you well and hope you can rebuild a meaningful relationship with your children, it may seem difficult in the early stages but you will need to gain their trust and respect and try to overcome the situation for the sake of your long term relationship as a father.

Mum had done the rishta with older bro's help before passing 2 Tan dhesi has been involved too, but Preet Kaur Gill is the leader of the cross-party political group helping sikhs 3 grow up , you can't just wander into another country and do what you like neither can you detain officials this isn't India diplomatic immunity means something in international law.. india refused to sign the international accord on human rights which included agreement to not use torture or compelled confessions so there you have proof positive that India cannot be touched by that law as they didn't agree to be bound by it. Nazanin is not a british spy , and she too is suffering Iranian jail away from her husband and child , she has been held on a false case and will have another tried which she will possibly be locked up for 16 years . The human right organisations are trying their best to highlight her case.
    •   " SABR "
      I’ve always wondered what SABR (Patience ) is
      I was never given a proper definition
      so my concept of it was somewhat distorted;
      All I understood was that you wait
      until it’s over.
      But now, if I were to put it into words,
      this is what I’ve gathered so far:
      SÂBR
      is suppressing that angry voice in
      your head, the one that wants to
      yell at people for being inconsiderate
      to your struggle.
      SÂBR
      is swallowing this voice,
      overcoming it and learning to
      channel it towards a heartfelt du'a instead.
      SÂBR
      is forgiving someone when they
      dismiss your feelings.
      SÂBR
      is meeting those who deserted
      you, with a smile on your lips,
      even though your tears are one
      step away from exposing you.
      SÂBR
      is staying silent because you’ve
      already stated your point too
      many times before.
      SÂBR
      is conforming to someone’s demand because of their right over you.
      SÂBR
      is fulfilling the rights of others
      even when they transgress
      against yours.
      SÂBR
      is crying about your heartache in
      front of God and no one else.
      SÂBR
      is believing wholeheartedly that
      God has beautiful things in
      store for you.
      SÂBR
      is crawling forward even when
      you want to stop.
      SÂBR
      is an active state of being,
      it is not a theory to simply be
      discussed and forgotten....   ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------          
    • I agree that Punjabi has its roots in Sanskrit and in fact holds more importance over Farsi, but that doesn't mean Farsi should be cast aside. If we cannot agree on the degree of connection between Punjabi and Farsi then a consideration should be made as to where the bar is set for Sikhs in pursuit of it specifically, if not for the writings of Bhai Nand Lal Ji, then at least for Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Zafarnama. On the topic of academic pursuits, an effort should be made without question to acquire good hand knowledge of Sanskrit. It's worth mentioning that Vedic Sanskrit and Old Persian actually share some similarities.   Punjabi, aside from having loanwords, also shares the same word order as Farsi - Subject, Object, Verb. Although this could well be a coincidence, I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't. What has given you the impression that anyone in this thread has an inferiority complex? For the majority of us, Punjabi is our maa boli and takes precedence over any other language. The fact that some have a piqued interest in a secondary language which unquestionably has had a significant influence on our mother tongue, whether through conquest or not, does not all of sudden warrant the accusation that one has an inferiority complex. Punjabi has many dialects, some which are more Persianized and some which are more Sanskritized, and even that doesn't determine how Punjabi is spoken - a lot of it is down to personal preference and exposure. I have yet to find someone who speaks Pre-Persian Punjabi or has completely removed any Persian influence. Punjabi during the emergence of Sikhi most likely already had quite a degree of Persian influence, possibly not as much as today, but it still had it nonetheless. It has evolved like most languages and we are talking about the form relative to Punjabis and Sikhs throughout early modern history and current day. My DNA test didn't tell me anything I didn't already know, and had it come back with higher percentage of Indigenous Indian, the topic of Punjabis/Sikhs learning Farsi would still be under discussion and actually already has been. Likewise, the fact that many Punjabis are more ethnically Persian doesn't mean we are denying our actual heritage - Bharati. While I despise the politics of modern day India, the fact remains that Punjab culturally, geographically, linguistically, socially, and religiously was, is, and will always be a part of Bharat despite any land borders past, present, or future, and any political designations. A fact that many Sikhs find bitter, and a fact which if in agreement with, will also surely cause the term 'inferiority complex' to be bandied about. Anyway, it's not as if I've been suggesting we all apply for Iranian Citizenship at the earliest possible chance and start stuffing our faces with kabobs now is it. These days in order to qualify as someone who doesn't have an inferiority complex, you must be a Pro-Khalistani Singh Sabhia who follows Reform 'Sikhism', and believe all Sikhs appeared on earth through immaculate conception and came with their own pure culture and divine language which to this day has been entirely uninfluenced by outside factors.  ! پیروزی به هندوستان
