Q.

My friend's daughter is a physiotherapist. A proposal has come from a rich family, the young man is a doctor. Parents of the young man say 'we do not want our son's wife to work. We have lot of money and we want her to be housewife' but the girl wants to work. Do you think she should accept the proposal and become a housewife or reject the proposal?

I personally think she should not accept this proposal and wait for better proposals, where the family is broad minded, where she will not have to kill her dreams and aspirations to be a part of the family.

A psychotherapist, to put it bluntly, deals with mental and emotional disorders. The rich family are wishing for something that can be held tantamount to sheer wastage of resource, Human resource which can be an asset to society. Expressing such a wish they appear to be of a very dominating nature and would prefer imposing their wishes on your friend's daughter in future too as they don't seem be accommodating types. A highly educated woman will surely feel frustrated after marriage there. Life will be very bitter in that house for her. She knows her capabilities ... and also knows how that is being snuffed out.
Let her decide. She is perfectly capable of taking a sound decision, keeping her wishes in mind and not just the wishes of her would husband and his family.

The final word has to come from the girl. It is HER life. How can OTHERS decide for her?

Become a housewife in my opinion. Latter, if she convinces her husband or family, can begin the job at residence.

Break some limbs at home, get them treated and be a physiotherapist at home: the problem would be solved.

It depends on her dream....... she is capable enough to lead her life ........ if she is having the dream to do something then she shouldn't .......... but it is possible to convince her family/husband to choose her profession in the post marriage part ......... in this case she should accept the match .......
