We all know how divorce is stigmatized in Pakistani society and people assume that divorcees can never live happily. A divorced woman is always looked down upon with eyes full of hate and pity.
Despite how our society views divorce, model and actress Rubya Chaudhry has taken a brave step and opened up about her personal life. She believes that separation does not always equate misery and darkness.
In a post, she mentioned that having a broken marriage doesn’t mean one’s life has ended; rather, it is the start of a new beginning. She thinks that divorces should be celebrated because they are your freedom from a relationship that wasn’t bringing you any happiness.
Rubya also gave a message to the women facing a hard time that instead of feeling pressurized and burdenized by society, make sure to strive and choose what’s best for you.
The model added that she wants to share this, not just for herself, but for the countless women who are gaslighted and forced into thinking that if they’ve been subject to a broken/unhappy marriage, it is their fault because they weren’t ‘good enough.’ She gave out a loud and clear message to choose divorce over a mentally draining and unhealthy marriage.
Here’s Rubya’s complete post:
