Since a young age, I have been hearing of failed marriages around the world.
Once in awhile, I would hear that he had to leave her because she turned out to be mental."
It often confused and captivated mewasnt the husband made aware of his wifes mental state before the wedding went ahead? If so, why did he agree if he knew he wouldnt be able to handle her condition in the long-run?
I was able to answer this question by my own.
Mental illness is a condition that is difficult to understand, its there, but its not really there. It breaks you apart, without leaving any physical footprints of its damage. You can feel it, but others cant see it. And when ones culture is added to the mix, things become more complicated.
It mostly happens in the South Asian countries more often than wed think. Rather than raising awareness and understanding, young girls are asked to hide their mental illness, as families often see it as something disgraceful and shameful. Many also fear that having a mental condition will prevent one from getting married, which is a particular threat among a society in which arranged marriages are often considered as the norm.
So instead of suppressing their mental illness, they should be brought out of such conditions and encouraged to live a happy life.
For me, its a duty to normalize it and to talk about how it impacted my life and how there is a silver lining.
