Even now, second marriages are frowned upon. A young man from Kerala, however, took a stand against the stigma. He wished his mother a happy married life when she remarried after leaving her reportedly abusive marriage with his father.
He posted a picture of his mother and her new husband, accompanied by a sweet message in Malayalam, garnering much love from across the country.

“It was my mother’s marriage. I thought a lot about whether or not to write such a note. After all, this is still a time when a lot of people do not accept a second marriage. Those with suspicious, pitying or hateful eyes, please don’t glance here. Even if you do look, no one will melt here,” a rough translation of the post reads.
The post has received a lot of love and praise in the comments!
“A woman who set aside her life for me... She suffered a lot in what was a disastrous marriage. When she was beaten and blood dripped from her forehead, I often asked her why she bore it. I remember her telling me she was willing to suffer for my sake as she was living for me. That day, when I left the house with her, I had made a decision about this moment... My mother, who set aside her entire youth for me, has a lot of dreams and heights to conquer. I have nothing more to say. I realised that this is something that does not need to be kept hidden. Mother, happy married life,” the post reads.
