    Why are Indian women submissive by nature?

    This problems baffles me from childhood. Do Indian women have enough brains or they think it is their duty to be suppressed? Why do they agree to marry at the will of their parents at a young age? Why can't they speak out? I feel every Indian woman should start worshiping Goddess Durga and fight for their rights.

    I do not think it is lack of brains, more a lack of education. And there is also the traditions that are held in high esteem in the more rural areas of your country. It is often really hard for these young women to break the cycle and to break free. I am not sure about the various religions in India, but maybe they have some influence too.

    It is the men that keep the women submissive. They prefer a submissive wife as well as the in-laws. Tell an indian women to speak her mind and she'll know that she will have to pay for it later.

    Wierd question. Perhaps you will find the answer from those women who are happily married with arranged marriages. Try it as a holiday to India will do you good. And, there are women who are also forced in terrible arranged marriages indeed. They marry because of pressure of all kinds you cannot even imagine in your world. So dont judge them for not having brains ... ok! And the good arranged marriages are comparible to online dating sights. Anyhow .. can imagine you dont understand another culture and environment than your own. Judging is unwise.

    This presupposes that submission is in some way bad.
    There are great arranged marriages and horrible ones. There are love marriages that end in disaster.

    When I was in Japan, I sat in one a class of women discussing arranged vs love marriages. All had been married for more than 20 years. What shocked me was the arranged marriages were all happy and the love marriages all sad.

    As I listened and asked questions, I learned the women in arranged marriages went in with zero expectations and looked at the choice of partner in a very practical manner. The love marriages were the exact opposite.

    Down the road, the arranged "friendships" grew into love, but the "hot and passionate" love marriages all cooled and the women was left married to a man she discovered she did not LIKE.

    I am a submissive. I was raised to be a real and quite literal sex slave. I learned for my own sanity to embrace this and then learned to use my sexual submission to deceptively manipulate men. Oh My I can hear you say. Decption and manipulation these are bed and wrong.

    I find them to be tools, no different than a hammer or a frying pan.

    I seduced the son of my master and manipulated him not only into marrying me, but embracing that I cuckold him with a number of my guards, who are now my lovers and bodyguards. I still "submit" to all of them, including my husband who is a charming, caring and attentive man.

    We are all fish swimming in the water of our lives. I accept my water and it sounds like you might be unhappy in yours.
