Wish you all the best for your marriage. You cannot demand equality, you have to earn it, just like respect. It depends on your partner too. He must be understanding and a person who moves with the times. Today most of the men look upon their wives as equal partners. Equality of thought is more important. Where there is love, respect and understanding everything falls in place. Good Luck.

But @ Nayana. for some, it may be okay at first to have an objective view but sometimes, attitudes can change overtime and what your partner agreed initially can be ignored later in relationship then what to do?<br />

Equality is only possible when you have explored or are aware of teh deeper thoughts & traits of your partner even before you tied the knot. If openness and transparency existed during the dating period or engagement period, then there is a chance for equality to exist in marriage.

Yes and if both of you are working then you both have an equal right to pursue or not pursue a career and be a solo breadearner.

To sum up in short it means equality on all terms and situations, be it relocating your home for career growth or treating, caring each others parents equally, & personal preferences, from dressing, travelling, food and hobbies will be respected, with no pressure or attempts to influence from spouse and in-laws.

What is equality in marriage? there is no such thing we have been born and brought up in a society where father is the head of the family, who earns for others in family and his verdict is the final word whereas ladies of the house are suppose to fulfill other members requirements. this is the truth that everyone should accept. preaching equality in a relationship is a sin! you people are ruining our culture.

Mr Rajat wake up! You are still in 16th century. stop talking like a typical indian man! FYI women stands at par with men in every aspect and so does they in a relationship.

Yeah but not all people are open to the idea of equality in marriage. Attitude has a lot to do with it. If both of you are conscious of giving each other equal rights, that one is not superior over the other, then perhaps a fair relationship can continue going forward. this goes for all others also...

Hi kripa you don have to feel guilty for asking equal teatment. we all are humans first so we all have emotions and strengths and capability to take responsibilities. no one can force you to do something not even a husband. You can just convey your intentions across and being a gentleman he shouldnt have a problem.
