Much easier now for men to find ways to satisfy their temptations: Nadia on increasing divorce rate

Actor talked about why she believes divorce rates are increasing in today's time

Entertainment Desk January 26, 2023

Earlier this month, actor-turned-host Nadia Khan shared her views on the rising divorce rate. During a podcast with Hafiz Ahmed, she pointed out how women have more financial independence now, which also helps them become self-sufficient in times of crisis.

After being asked about the main reasons behind divorces in Pakistan, the Wehshi actor said, "I think people are quite disloyal in these times. In the 1990s if a man had to even approach women, it used to be a huge hassle for him. Like going up to women to give their personal number and just hoping she calls them back. Now, there is so much exposure between men and women that husbands don't pay heed to their wives at home anymore. She is always looking after the children at home and is stressed with household work and they find that 'boring'."

She then opined on how modern society has made it easier for people to have extramarital affairs. "In this era, it's much easier for men to find ways to satisfy their temptations. There are houses, apartments, dating spots and even applications online that have made the process so simple. Honestly, it's a man's nature too but the new generation has no morale. Even I personally know a few women who are involved with married men and that makes me so unhappy. How is it so easy for them to cheat and lie to both partners? Having secret marriages and affairs behind their wives' backs, I mean there should be a limit to it," expressed Khan.

Moving on, the Bandhan star then called out women who choose to get involved with married men. She said, "I get upset at the women who knowingly get involved with such men. If you know someone is committed, then it's a 'no go' zone. I suppose women play a part too, especially due to the greed for money and a stable man. For men though, it's become easier to fool around. I think when society makes the path easier, eventually it will lead to more sin among people."

Khan also highlighted how financially secure women are increasing in number, thus more married women are opting for divorce if they are unhappy. "Another reason for the rampant divorce is the financial independence women have nowadays. At first, when a woman thought of separating she had many hurdles and was dependent on the men in her family, but now if women wish to part ways, they can take care of themselves,” she concluded.
