They were plaguing their daughter-in-law for their miseries. They always said she corrupted their son. She was accused of every misery and pain he had brought to them, when he ill-treated or abused them. None of them understood that he was an equal adult as she was. He was more in command than she was. Never anyone criticized him since he was theirs, and no one took her side since she wasn’t. Why she was more culprit when they invested their youth on him not on her. Like always its someone else’s daughter who was a criminal, not their son.
P.S. Are women to be blamed for everything, even if they haven't done it? They are being blamed for wearing inappropriate clothes, for not following traditional rules of the family, sometimes they are even blamed for laughing loudly and seeking attention. While real flaws in men are ignored and considered to be normal. As they say, you should not complaint, men are like that. It is time to address this issue. Blame him, not her.Do you know any such stories? Have you held liable for the things you haven't done? Did this post give you new perspective of looking at things? Post your views, if any.
