I completely sympathise with thee, but i feel the story is incomplete without hearing from the opposite sex. As the old saying goes, "There are always two sides to a coin".
So here is our version : The dilemma of being a women
1. Thou shalt unconditionally love cleaning thy husband's clothes....especially the white ones which were worn at the local football or cricket matches and are completely stained with dirt, mud and sweat which smells like skunk's breath-taking odor.
2. Thou shalt understand that two hot dogs or vaada pavs, in the TV room with Footy or Ruby match on with him drowning in beer and you in softdrink, constitute going out to dinner.
3. Thou shalt never ever say 'No' or complain about going with the mother-in-law to the nearby 'sat-sang' or 'kirtan', as it is considered a MUST ritual for a dutiful daughter-inlaw.
4. Thou shalt remember, when thy husband is watching 'Baywatch' or 'Porn movies' its for the fine acting skills of the actors and actresses.
5. Womanliness does not permit you to go for a night-out with your girlfriends instead of your husband or brothers.
6. Thou shalt never complain, if thy husband invites a bunch of his buddies for dinner and bothers to inform you just half an hour in advance and that too on the day when your saku-bai decides to not show up since she needs to attend her mother's brother's sister-inlaw's son's wedding.
7. Thou shalt learn to except, that men need to fix things that dont need to be fixed. Its their birth-right.
8. Thou shalt learn to except that, when lost asking for directions is considered un-manly for thy beloved sweet hearts.
9. Thou shalt learn to understand, the most common second language used by men, i. e. Beer & Over-eating Burbs.
10. Thou shalt fear two words 'Buck's night' for all apparent reasons.
11. Thou shalt never complain, if thy husband refuses get up in the middle of the night to change thy baby's diapers. According to them, its their wife's birth-right.
12. Thou shalt believe thy husband when he says 'We share the housework'. He creates the mess and you clean it up.
And the list goes on and on and on.....and the struggle continues.
