……Yesterday, I heard that a 17year old girl drank bottle of mosquito repellent liquid….
Now Try to See Legal and Social Consequences to her future husband and future in-Laws :-
1) Since attempt to suicide is now not considered offense, parents could get immediate treatment in hospital. The girl recovered fast. The episode ended peacefully.
2) The girl has history of being stubborn, too much demanding, mood disorders, and desires to control parents with threat to commit suicide if her wishes are not met.
3) The parents will probably hide such history from future would be husband and in laws.
4) In future, if such incident happen at her matrimonial home, her husband and in laws may probably have to see jail.
🌼 Now the constructive suggestion :
If Law is truly an instrument of social engineering, Law should ensure that pre-marriage psychological behaviour of a girl is also given due weightage while considering guilt of her husband and in-laws.
From cases, I have seen entire families going to jail due to suicide of a wife who had some borderline personality disorder.
