It is extremely important to make this admission without any reservations, because we cannot solve problems unless we recognize them.
In the worldview of classical Hindu texts, the wife was not a producer of wealth. Her sphere of activity was restricted to her home, and her family members. This was true for all traditional societies, and things are changing very fast in Hindu societies today with more and more women exploring opportunities for self-fulfillment outside their homes with the support of their husbands and other family members.

It is men who though married, commit adultery with other women. Women must not be blamed for adultery, only men should be blamed for this sin. A man who neither takes care of his wife nor provides for her does not deserve to be called her husband or her provider. Normally Hindu texts mention mother before father. In Hindu texts, a sinful father can be abandoned, but sinful mother cannot not be abandoned.

Whenever men are afflicted with sorrow or are in physical pain, the presence of wives serves to alleviate their suffering just as a perspiring person feels refreshed after a cool bath. Mahabaharata 1. After completing the marriage rites, they should exert with all their might to avoid being unfaithful to each other, and to avoid splitting up from each other.
Women must be encouraged to become self-confident and financially independent. Anguished by the even after his death.
