    Female Depression and Marriage - Must Read!!!



    Female Depression and Marriage - Must Read!!!-indian-wedding-dresses-2.jpg

    The balancing act that women have to perform, between their personal and professional life, can create an ample amount of stress for them which, in turn, may lead to depression. Not only this, women have to make an extra effort so as to do better than their male counterparts and to make their efficiency noticed and appreciated. And at the same time they have to look after their household.These two aspects of life often tear a woman into two making her prone to depression.

    Survey suggests that the chances of women suffering from depression are greaterwhen they enter wedlock. It has beennoticed in almost every household that once married a man’s duty regarding thehousehold chores is relatively reduced than it used to be when he was singleand that of a woman is increased twice. Had women their own preferences ondoing the household chores, their anxiety and distress would have been relatively reduced.

    When we hear of such things some of us might label it as laziness on the partof the women, for we are bound by the mindset since our childhood that being awoman our duty is to perform the entire household task. We are made to believethat the life of a woman revolvesaround the entire household and it is her responsibility to ensure the wellbeing of her family. And some of us do not even appreciate the thought that ourbetter half is as much responsible as we are for the well being of our family.

    There are several reasons of household task being a cause of severe distress.Task such as cooking, doing the dishes, washing, cleaning, shopping forgroceries are some of the housework which is least appreciated and least fulfillingthat often go unnoticed by others. And as a result it becomes a cause of mentalstrain. The presence of dependent children in the family is also a major riskfor depression among women.

    The more the number of children, higher is the chance for women to suffer fromdepression. However, there is a difference between the depression that aworking wife experiences and that experienced by a homemaker or a housewife. Workingwives are oftenunder distress in trying to rule out a balance between their professionalatmosphere and their personal atmosphere which are very different.

    There is a sense of over-loaded pressure which engulfs them in trying tomaintain the balance efficiently. And as far as homemakers are concerned, theyare burdened with the thought that they are confined within the four walls oftheir home, trying to bring up their children and their own self being reducedto a scullery maid.

    However, marriage seems to provide a protective cover tomen. Their chances of undergoing depression are much lesser than the bachelors.Yet, if the spouse vows to share all the housework right from the beginning,then the bride might improve their married life for the better. Sharing of workis what makes the difference between well being and psychological distress.

    Dear Gkarti, the sentence Sharing of work is what makes the difference between well being and psychological distress is 100% true. If at all it happens the bride's life will be easier to come to normal in the new family environment. thanks
