Will She Fight For Her Right? Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

In an adultery, law punishes man
And lets off the woman, an abettee
For she was man's property.
We punish the thief and not the stolen.

Now woman is not a man's property.
She is an independent identity.
As she shares fame with man in joint ventures
She must share blame with man in adultery.

This is her right for which will she fight?

    I think that it is still punishable in certain states of USA, as this country has different states law and the Federal law. Having affair is wrong according to the law. It is completely different in India, as the marriage is considered as the union for life, people try to hide all the misdoings to show the community that they are the happy families...
