Bollywood Actresses who are second wives to their Men

After reading my Hub on why some woman prefer married men for love, sex or marriage I got a hate mail from an Indian female. She wrote that such things may happen abroad but in India such relationships can be counted in fingers like a Dharmendra and Hema Malini or a Boney Kapoor and Sridevi. As an Indian who takes pride in my Indian Culture and upbringing I would be the last person to insult or hurt the feelings of a fellow Indian. My hub was about my views in general on the subject and the reasons why I thought some women dated or married already married men. It was a general hub and not about just Indians. In fact what or why a man or woman prefers someone is his or her own personal issue or preference.

    I think it most important the woman is fulfilled in her matrimonial role and it shouldn't be a stigma in this instance.

    Yes, it is definitely wrong to break up a family and get married to a man who already has a wife. However, I don't see the problem if the man is already divorced from his first wife. People do have the right to move on with their life and get another chance at happiness. Marriages break up for all sorts of reasons and there is nothing wrong with getting married to someone else after a divorce. You need to become more open-minded. There is NOTHING wrong with a man or woman remarrying after divorce or become widowed, etc.

    Its surprising that all this has become even more active in today's time. India was especially known to be very religious..but they also have started following such practices..

    In the US, there is a subgroup of people who still practise polygamy (more than one wife to a husband.) It is not legally recognized, but still occurs. What i have read is that a man's second wife tends to be a woman who is successful in her own right, financially stable, and also they tend to be good looking. The second wife likes the arrangement b/c it gives her the security of marriage, but since she is the second wife, she has most of her freedom too. these women tend to be quite independent, modern women, they think being a second wife is the best deal.

    This sounds a lot like your Bollywood actresses. The same dynamics are probably in play.

    Telling truth is one ingredient of good writing. Don't worry about negative comments. Just keep writing. Societies are always changing, so the values. This trend can't be supported but it's there out of changing phenomenon of relationsip and we can't stop it just.

    To Anamika S:

    Thanks for being a fan, Anamika. I appreciate it. It seems that this habit of women dating and falling for married men is not a thing confined to western men. It is parhaps a human thing and happens all over the world. Yes, it is a risky thing for the woman, as she is doing something that is ordinarily considered as taboo. But in the Uk women seem to want the guy because he is experienced, or has a possible aura about him of maturity and the woman is looking for a more mature guy. It's worth pointing out that some men don't always happen to be in a necessarily happy marriage, and may be at a point where they are going through a bad patch, or on the down-slope of the marriage. It's always tough for the kids, if there are any.

    It is when the guy's wife finds out that the trouble really goes up a few notches! I am surprised that you got hate mail from anyone. It's a universal thing in human behaviour. Asian people should not feel shamed by just telling others or informing the world about something that is already known. This is a good Hub! You sure included plenty of names of Bollywood stars who have had the experience!
