In our society, we see so many families who think that the only thing that can make a messed-up, undisciplined and problematic man better is a wife. So they force men to get married and hope that the wives help them walk on a better path and get their lives together. The idea that only a woman can ‘fix’ a man has existed for a very long time. But you would think that such ideas have no place in the mind of a seemingly progressive person.
However, Shahid Kapoor proved us wrong when he revealed his definition of marriage. According to him, marriage is when a man is messed up and the wife comes around and fixes him for the better.

“It’s that the guy was a mess and the woman came in to fix him. So the rest of this life is going to be a journey of being fixed and becoming a decent person,” he said, while talking about his views on marriage.
Shahid Kapoor was 34 and Mira Rajput was 20 when they got married. People online found it very difficult to understand why a 34-year-old grown man would need a 20-year-old young woman to ‘fix’ him. They schooled him for his backward idea of marriage and expressed their disappointment in him.
Here’s how some of them reacted:
please ask yourself why you need a woman 13 years younger than you to fix you, a 40+-year-old man before you say it in an interview https://t.co/nYt9pb6uvc

Another day with a man expecting marriage to be a foster home for his persistent immaturity as a sexist manchild.
Your incompetence is NOT a woman’s problem. https://t.co/MMfwIgu8rB

All the indian men defending him here have brain rot. If you need a women 13 years younger to “fix” you, think about just how fucked up you are.
Not surprising he dated women his age but married a very younger woman, that too arranged. https://t.co/ieDS2Txwry

Shahid was 34 and she was 20-21 when they got married. Imagine loading someone who is barely out of her teens to ‘fix’ a grown up! https://t.co/ZVdryFknuo

Got married as a 34 Y.O to a 21 Y.O and still needs fixing. Typical Raja Beta Syndrome. Perhaps try marrying to actually start a commitment and family with love and care and then you know what real marriage is

Women are not free therapists.
Marriage is not a rehabilitation centre.
Kindly admit yourself into such institutions if you require “fixing”. https://t.co/QV3UYh6Kx6

Women are not rehabilitation centres for grown up, messed up men.
