The list can be endless but you need to take a call. It’s now or never. Married life is to enjoy compansionship, see the brightest colours of life together, embrace family bliss, be old together,bring kids, fight ups and downs , maintain health of each other and no matter what just stay together. It’s a continuous which you dare to ignore else cracks will surface.

But it is from both sides; husband-wife. Sorry to say, but in today’s time, you just can’t exploit  the other gender especially with competitive education, finances and outlook.

Both the individuals have to bear the responsibility of running a relationship called Marriage. If you give up then marriage also gives up and then lawyers like me have some work.

Glad, we people have some work to do on this planet like:

  1. Maintenance Lawyer
  2. Child Custody Advocate
  3. Divorce Lawyer
  4. Family Lawyer
  5. Matrimonial Disputes and Marriage Counselling etc.
