      Why are women who have been separated from their husbands regarded as destitutes? For instance, if a woman is driven away from her husband's home by her husband and her in-laws soon after marriage because she (or her parents) could not pay dowry, it is not her fault, but society will not then give her the same respect it would give someone who was happily married, simply because she is separated from her husband.

      The point I am trying to make here is that we in India, generally speaking, treat women as if they only deserve to be respected as long as they are happily married. This, obviously, isn't right. Or at least that's my opinion
