For example, there are plans to change India's family laws to make it easier for women to divorce their husbands. A law reform has been accepted by cabinet which would give women the right to unilaterally and quickly divorce their husbands. The husband would have no such unilateral right; his wife would be allowed to oppose his plea for divorce in the courts:
According to the amendments, while a wife can oppose a husband's plea for a divorce under the new "irretrievable breakdown of marriage" clause, the husband will have no such rights to oppose if the wife moves the court on the same grounds
The Times of India supports the reforms as being in sync with "a modern, liberal society". It makes me wonder if countries like India look at the West as being the "advanced model" of society and try to copy it on that basis. If so, they are not doing themselves any favours. The West did not develop on the basis of easy divorce for women. That is not part of the secret formula for social progress.
There seems to be a decadence creeping into Indian culture. It makes me think that China is the country more likely to push ahead.
