My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Marriage from A to Z in 55 Words. D is for Domestic Violence in Marriage, which is not so uncommon.
The red dot on her forehead signifies female energy.
The black beaded mangalsutra around her neck protects from evil.
The bright vermilion in her hair parting is to bring about good fortune.
These powerful symbols of marriage soon loose sheen.
For they are now dulled by blue marks and the grey clouds of domestic violence.
A Word to the Wise
You don’t have to wait for someone to treat you bad repeatedly. All it takes is once, and if they get away with it that once, if they know they can treat you like that, then it sets the pattern for the future. Jane Green.
