This out of India: a married woman who had disappeared in 2008, whose husband was arrested for her murder, turned up alive and well. She’d run off with another guy, who subsequently abandoned her, so she returned to her parents’ home. Her husband, meanwhile, had been in jail for eight months. The article says she’d like to return to him but so far he’s refusing to take her. From the article:

[A]ction will be taken against those police personnel who arrested the husband without making proper enquiry.

Well, I certainly hope so.

    And, I would think, against the woman herself. That’s just not right, as they say. If you want to go, go. But let people know what you are up to. I can’t imagine it would have been any more shame in running away with a lover than coming back “tainted”. The man spent time in jail, for God’s sake, for nothing! I divorce her, and sue her in civil court. That is messed up. The cops act on what they have. I wonder what her family thinks of her now.

      Running away with a lover probably is considered much more shameful in India than it is here. And divorce is much less common — although I agree that this situation certainly calls for it.

      You could argue that the woman should not have been expected to predict that her husband would wind up charged with her murder after she left him. After all, that sort of thing hardly ever happens.

        I get all that, but why did she come back then? There is a story here we are not getting.

        It looks like she came back because her lover dumped her.

    Sigh. I meant “I’d” divorce her.

    Her new boyfriend finally realized that if she could leave her husband for him, she could leave him for somebody else. That’s what I always say about people that leave their spouse for somebody else.
    Then when the fun was over she came back, dragging her tail behind her. đŸ™‚
