We have several forums and avenues for married women, if they are being subjected to domestic violence or harassment from husbands and in-laws. However, if the same is happening the other way round, men in India are virtually finding it easy to attempt or commit suicide, since there is no commission for this gender that could give them a fair hearing.

Such cases make us question the one sided biased laws which have armed only the wives to decide when they want to dissolve the painful marriage. Often in our society, women choose to continue torturing the men, just because the wives do not want to live with the tag of a divorcee.
Harassed husbands on the other side, resort to extreme means to end their suffering due to a biased system supported by court of law and women centric approach.
