    I empathize; but just imagine a 20 year old married woman doing such irresponsible act! I would like to elicit the views of women commenters like Eva, Kirem and Cynthia, DK on this sorry incident! Only the other day they were arguing about virginity till 22 and what not 😕.....?

    Rudy sir, for your information, she is married and virgin no more. Again, for your information, she informed her husband that, she will be continuing to live with her new partner. She didnt cheat her husband behind his back and she clarified her stand !! Perhaps, this her husband did some kithapathi after he heard her decision Again for your wonderful imagination and knowledge, why her partner who is much more older than her, kept away from her on the ground that she is married lady and belonging to another MAN and his family ???!!! Please dont change the track and comment on the views which i expressed here....ಗುಂವ್ಡಾಂವ್ಚೆಂ ನಾಕಾ. ಚೆಡೊ ಕಿತೆಂ teen ager gi ? ತಾಕಾ ಸಮ್ಜಣಿ ನಾಂಗೀ ತೆಂ ಸಾಂಗ್. Gender biased comments naka. Maka raag aila😡😡

    I believe in rational, logical, and current affairs based 🤔 thinking! My views are gender neutral always and the other day the topic of age and virginity applied to both genders! I REITERATE AGAIN THAT TODAY SCHOOL STUDENTS OF 8-9-10th class start their amorous exercises; and remaining a virgin is an exception rather than a rule!! Here, I was commenting on the consciousness and morality of the concerned girl who just vanished with her new found love without even divorcing; what nonsensical act is this? If it was the other way round the girls family would have filed dowry harrasment cases against the husband! My comments are news specific and based on the reality of the times we are living in and not based on what was going on in the earlier generation; I hope this goes to your white matter!🤔🙏
