Low divorce rates in places where too many of those marriages are violent abusive confines from which women cannot escape - due to social "perspectives" and due to the status of those women - are not something to extol when supposedly condemning violence against women.
If you had any genuine, informed concerned about domestic violence why on earth would you ...[text shortened]... nly serves to make the nightmare ~ that far too many women there have to endure ~ all the worse?
One of the reasons about low divorce rates in India is probably culture (Hinduism) which teaches : “Marriage is a lifetime union of not only two souls but also of two different families/generations…..Both families (Bride’s and Groom’s side) and their blessings/attention/opinion/guidance matters in a successful marriage”.
Also, Hindus traditionally follows some basic rules like:
One Life One Wife (Inspired from Lord Rama’s life story)
Karma /Dharma towards family & society
Family which lives/eats together stays together
Consider Gross income of family rather than focusing on individual’s income (this avoids conflicts between couples or other close family members)
Family first, self interest later
Taking parent’s/elder’s (both side) opinion in major family decisions
Saving money or investing together for future crisis (Land/ House/ Gold/ Silver/ Diamonds)
Responsibility or upbringing of Kids together (they need love from both)
Avoid being Spendthrift/Careless (not just about money but also other natural resources)
Staying away from Alcohol/Smoke/Bad habits as it spoils married life/family
Parental (both sides) guidance/moral support/counselling if there are frequents fights between husband-wife
Not a single mention of domestic violence being a factor. Did you simply make it up?
