Whose Life Is It Anyway?

Not necessarily yours. Indeed, you can’t be trusted to take decisions in some of the most important areas of your life. Mid Day reports:

Our courts believe in the institution of marriage. And they feel ‘incompatibility’ is not reason enough for a divorce. In February, the Bandra Family Court referred as many as seven mutual consent divorce petitions back to matrimonial counsellors, urging couples to “understand one another” instead of parting ways. None of the petitions was even considered.

Note that these were not cases where there was a dispute between two people that the court needed to sort out. Instead, two adults decided that they no longer wanted to be together, thinking that this would surely be their decision alone. His Highness disabused them of this arrogant notion.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go file a petition. I need permission to pee.
