The hardships faced by the newlywed brides when their supposedly trustworthy NRI husbands flee alone is a subject rarely studied upon. This study draws knowledge for the readers from 20 such cases of Punjab of which 12 were registered with lok bhalayi party and 8 were taken with application of snowball sampling. The ordeals experienced by such left behind wives are as painful as is the need for a holistic action be taken by the society. Right from showing reluctance in having a formal registration of the nuptial arrangement to avoiding any form of communication with the husbands; the acts of such families call for a thorough introspection of the values prevalent in the present Indian society.

Abstract


The hardships faced by the newlywed brides when their supposedly trustworthy NRI husbands flee alone is a subject rarely studied upon. This study draws knowledge for the readers from 20 such cases of Punjab of which 12 were registered with lok bhalayi party and 8 were taken with application of snowball sampling. The ordeals experienced by such left behind wives are as painful as is the need for a holistic action be taken by the society. Right from showing reluctance in having a formal registration of the nuptial arrangement to avoiding any form of communication with the husbands; the acts of such families call for a thorough introspection of the values prevalent in the present Indian society.
