“The happier the wife is with long-term marriage, the better the husband’s life.” It is the urgent responsibility of the society to bring happiness and well-being in the married women’s life and rescue them from the black shadows of depression.

Forced Marriages, Women and Depression

The males masquerading as a perfect Muslim men carry oppression in lavish details. Number of times, the women have been forced by men, totally against their will, the tears that follow each experience and how when women complained about the wrong doing to a religious scholar, he had looked at her with anger and said “ Women like You should be stoned to death.” This exclusively exhorts depression in women. This is indeed derogatory to the status of women in Islam and women should be dealt with care and respect.

Depressed Women in Polygamous Marriage

Feelings of neglect, negative emotions and emotional emptiness are observably seen in women facing polygamy. According to an international survey, women in polygamous marriage were observed and asked to speak their hearts out, one of the women said that “I rarely saw my husband and he did not meet my needs too.” The medical doctors in this research panel made findings that “serious cases range from depression, angry tantrums or even illnesses.” “It depends on the tolerance and patience of the wife. The environment that the woman grows up in affects her ability to accept being part of a polygamous marriage.” In Islam, a man is allowed to marry up to four women. The Quran states there are conditions that must be met, including treating each wife with justice, fairness and equality. So when a male indulges in polygamy he must ascertain that he is just to all parties, whether women or children, in terms of finance, support, moral support, love, attention, care and education of children.

Pregnant Housewives and Malnutrition

Malnutrition is a significant problem in developing countries. A married woman’s nutritional intake impacts both her health during pregnancy and the health of her baby. Without proper care, she is susceptible to illnesses and her baby’s health is at risk. Malnutrition during pregnancy can cause devastating results. A woman that is undernourished at the time of conception is at risk of serious health issues for both herself and her baby. Without enough food, she will most likely lose weight, which increases the risk of maternal mortality rate MMR.

Depression and Demand for a Son

Married women should not stress themselves in lieu for a demand for a son. According to a medical research it is the male who determines the gender of offspring. Married women should not be pressurized, beaten or downtrodden for the female baby birth.

Gossiping Relatives and Friends

While you cannot remove yourself from the family tree, you can easily manage any jealous family members that you have. The most important step is to keep them out of your personal affairs. You do not want your goals or current events to be the main discussion at their dinner table. They will simply devour it and speak negatively about your life. Do not fuel the fire for their gossip and their negative talk. Avoid confrontation and indeed it will be a blessing in this concern. I believe silence is a best reply to a fool.

 

Don’t say “I am Ageing”: Age is Just a Number

With age you can be fitter than ever before. I believe gold is gold after the test of fire and time. The more you age the more you develop a mature approach, and you can flamboyantly carry your style and attire. The more you love yourself, the more you will be away from depression.  Sip green tea and steal time from the daily chores to attend your health. 

Indulge in Yoga for Happiness

Happiness is an inside job. According to yoga philosophy, you practice contentment, a form of self-discipline. In other words, happiness is a skill and a practice.  Happier people do not have easier lives, with less hard work, grief, divorce, or financial strain than the rest of us. They’re simply more grateful for what they have and choose to be conscious of their contentment more often.

Financial Independence of Women

Financial autonomy is important for raising feminine self-morale. Financially independent women are capable of taking their own decisions and don’t have to beg for money in front of anyone. This increases their self-respect and makes them more confident to face any kind of odds in life. Moreover, being individuals, a lot many women might be having some aspirations and dreams, but for the fulfillment of which th...
