Stories of women forced into marriages

My spunky daughter was having a fun banter with one of my relatives when she was told that she will be missed in the future. “Why? Where am I going? I am here only!” She was perplexed.

“Oh! You will get married and become a member of someone else’s home”, was the answer she received.

It took me a few moments to register that this was a conversation with a 3-year-old, who also happens to be my child. I stormed into the discussion and managed to steer it into a different direction soon enough. The relative probably got the hint and didn’t bring up this topic with my daughter ever again. Thank God for small mercies!
