IF YOU DECIDE TO GET MARRIED If you decide to get married there are a few things you need to consider not the least of which is that you are often not only marrying the girl, you are marrying the whole family who will expect you to be generous. Often there will be a payment to the parents called sin sot (dowry) the amount is negotiated and dependent on what you are prepared to pay. Often if the girl has been married before or the parents are deceased there is no dowry. Many Thai women have children from a previous scoundrel that they married thinking mistakenly, that he was in it for the long term. Not only is he no longer in the picture, he also in all likelihood does not help to support his children.

They should not be given proper education because their sole purpose is to be a wife and mother and eventually serve their families instead of having a professional career. On the other hand, men are required to provide and make sure that their families’ needs are met. No, because women were already empowered, well-educated and capable of a lot of things. They already had their voices heard and perhaps already won the fight over stereotyping of gender roles.
Out of my family, I challenge these roles the most by not setting an expectation on what I should do based on my gender. I am not weak or incapable at other tasks, excluding wife duties, just because I am a woman. As for my mother, she is for feminism, but she believes it is a dangerous subject because many react violently towards equality between women and men. My dad is not fully on board with feminism; women should get equal pay, but they should not be doing outside chores because “that is a man’s job”. In addition, the word feminism scares most people away because they do not understand or know the true meaning behind it.
When her mother gives her such an attitude about mispronounce of her name, it really left her unsatisfied. She said “my cultural identity is hardly that clear-cut”6 Another big problem that makes the second generation immigrants be even more confused is the choice between ‘pleasing their parents and being true to themselves’. Because of her parents' sacrifice of moving their whole lives for them, she can't help feeling pressure — she owes them the fulfillment of their hopes. She described her life as "a planned life of
Delaying a marriage allows women more time to focus on, and complete her education, and according to Diversity in Families (2002), getting married while trying to obtain any sort of degree will upset a women’s timetable. This means that marriage is an obstacle to education. Moreover, statistics shows that there is a difference of $18,152 in annual personal income between college educated women who marry before the age of twenty, and those who wait till thirty or later (Knot Yet, 2013). Furthermore, some women also want to establish their financial security through advanced education before settling down with a spouse. Women, just like men, choose to pursue their careers because they want to stay competitive in their businesses.
Ladies got to be other individuals ' property-their fathers’ property and later their husbands’. Parents often worry about “losing face” in the community. While boys have all the freedom they want, girls are constantly advised not to be reckless and do something stupid that would bring shame to their families. Traditional mentality says that “If girls roam around transparently like this, then the young men will submit lapses." The personal satisfaction of an Indian lady indeed depends entirely on her family.
Today when a girl dreams of getting married, they think of love and that special someone they want to spend there rest of their life with and always be right by their side with. You would never imagine it would be hell for girls who are dreading their wedding day or doesn’t even know she getting married because she is only maybe 12,13 or a little younger these girls are know as child brides and the parents married them off when they are young because maybe then can’t take care of them it saddens me when these girls have big dreams and want to do so much only to be taken away after their marriage.parents put their daughter’s freedom and dreams to marry a complete stranger. In the USA you don’t really see much of girls getting married at an young age more or less pregnant but never married. In third world countries like Bangladesh,Chad,India and Niger* it 's very common and in some parts illegal like in bangladesh a girl can marry at the age of 18 no younger than but people have grown angry at the new law some organizations are trying to fight for example the “girls not brides”organization are trying to stop these illegal marriages. Still these families hold secret wedding very late at night or away from the villages to escape the police it 's sad to see these girls so scared not knowing to how take care of her husband when she can’t even take care of herself.
Marriage is a knot between two people after which one of partner is expected to make a number of compromises, and in most of the cases the partner making compromises is the wife; The girl, The women. One of the biggest compromises the girl is expected to make is to give up on her education, her job or let’s say all the things that matter. In some cases professional life never starts for them and in some it starts but ends soon sometimes because of the conservative values of family, sometimes due to financial issues but the most common one to discontinue their job is marriage. Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy is an example and inspiration for all the women. She won an Oscar for her documentary and she is probably the first Pakistani to get that.
Initially, the society stigmatized women from acting in films (Ganti 2004). So, when women started acting, the directors had to comply with the social norms in the portrayal of women. Women mostly played the roles of a daughter (taking care of her brothers, helping the mother in the kitchen, and marrying the man of her father 's choice), a great wife (who was responsible for all household chores, taking great care of her husband, children, and would lead the rest of her life by embracing her husband 's memories, once she became a widow), and of a great mother (who is selfsacrificing) (Gokulsing & Dissanayake 2004).
