A new friend (co-worker), told me about Karva Chauth.
A few years ago when she decided to fast for her husband,
he was totally against it. He said it was not necessary.
She insisted and went ahead with it.
He appreciated the gesture.
She still fasts for him once a year.
Can't wait for some woman to fast for me! I hope that's the day we have fried yam & grilled salmon for breakfast, lunch & dinner. More for me!
On a serious note, Karva Chauth seems to help strenghten the bond between married people. Key word here is "seems".
I have a hard time allowing people to do things for me, I'll say she is crazy if a woman wants to fast for me.
What do you think of Karva Chauth? Would you fast for your husband to show you love/adore him and you want him to live a long & healthy life for you and the family? Would you be OK with your wife fasting for you?
