    thanks for sharing. Iam going to watch that now!

  2. I saw the trailer Kalpana. I want to watch it to know what happens in real life outside the bubble I live in. I heard that one line. “I have to pay him?.Why?”. Because he can ask whatever he wants..
    She is already traumatized..how much more will you rip off.. I want to know. And I am awaiting your address, my dear Kalpana 😀

      I’ll send it to you 🙂
      Well that one line was a bit of a teaser. Each divorce is taken situationally and it doesn’t seem as though the women are being exploited. At least not from this documentary. To know the full facts I’d have to go to Australia and interview women asking for Islamic divorce 🙂

    Have studied Islamic finance which is based on Sharia Laws…Just recently also finished the book by Arun Shourie.. The World of Fatwas… So yes I will want to watch this movie to see how Sharia laws affect marriages and divorces… thanks for sharing the details Kalpana ..

      It’s interesting because the Sheikhs were so compassionate and actually the couples were already considered divorced since the Australian government had granted the divorce, but each of them wanted an Islamic divorce. One woman said, ‘this is the one that matters to me.’
      I may read Arun Shourie’s book. Although I have a huge pile of books piled up on the floor beside my bed.

    In my case there was no sadness at all. I had all of that long before I finally got my divorce. Now I’ve been happily married for 22 years and am only grateful that I was given that second chance.

    I can tell you that it is possible to feel sadness and relief all at once. My first marriage ended after 19 years. As much as I wanted it over in the end, I was also very relieved. I no longer felt burdened by the weight of a man incapable of owning his emotions, his mistakes, his choices, and his decisions. Like Gillian, I am forever grateful for the 2nd chance at truly, madly, deeply. I’ve been married now for 7 years to the most amazing man in the universe 🙂

    I know many may not understand it and many may find it a little hard to take. But fortunately or unfortunately I have seen quite a few divorce/seperations around me. And I have seen some with happy ends and some with very bitter ones. i want to know what creates that difference? I will of course see the trailer but also need more than just that 🙂

    by the way did I tell you your posts are doing a service to our society. Honestly kudos !!

      Awwww thanks for the compliment Richa.
      What creates the difference between a happy divorce ( if you can call such an event happy) and a bitter one? Restraint and a willingness to remain friends since you can’t be spouses. You know what – this is material for a blogpost. Which I will probably write AFTER the Ultimate Blog Challenge is over 🙂
