The whole purpose of having a spouse is to find tranquility in and with them; and our relationships with our spouses are the signs we have a partner and caretaker for us, no matter how difficult and rough life gets & that too, without any materialistic gain.
Although, respect from both the genders is absolutely essential for the relationship to work. Love without respect is dangerous; it can crush the other person, sometimes literally. To respect is to understand that the other person is not you, not an extension of you, not a reflection of you, not your product etc. In a relationship of respect, your task is to understand the other person as a unique individual and learn how to mesh your needs with his or hers and help that person achieve what he or she wants to achieve. Your task is not to control the other person or try to change him or her in a direction that you desire but he or she does not.
However, in our society, women are stereotyped to be torch bearers or bound to be the nurturers of bringing tranquility in the relationship no matter whatever the husband does. Women are always forced to make amends even when the husband makes mistakes or dreadful in maintaining the relationship at his end.
To raise awareness regarding the issue, Reem Rice takes leap of faith by taking this initiative forward and launching a massive campaign on 8th of March. The campaign in its own way delivers a perfect anecdote of describing marriage with a key message #RotisayKhayenChawal which is also the main hashtag of Dua-e-Reem, and gives an ideal example of Roti & Rice where if one likes Roti and the other one likes Rice either wouldn’t mind eating Roti with Chawal. This is the same with marriage, where the key ingredient is mutual respect and understanding which translates into the ever lasting bond to sum it up; love & compassion brings bliss only if tempered by equality & compromise from both ends. Love adds joy and provides the emotional bonds that help carry the relationship through hard times. The attachment aspect of love is valuable in our relationship with our spouse, because marriage is forever & eternal.
