Newly Married Couples Trainings
Jagori Rural has identified 20 newly married couples from the Kangra district. When a woman gets married in Himachal Pradesh, she often moves to her husbands home. She is saddled with new responsibilities, new relationships, and is expected to make the transition seamlessly. Many problems arise because the new couple are not given an open space to communicate about the new obstacles that they both face. The purpose of these trainings is to make husbands and wives aware of each others circumstances, communicate about their needs, and better understand and analyze future issues they may come across. So far, one three-day residential training was conducted with these 20 couples.
In the future, the Jagori team will conduct follow-ups with these couples, and identify more couples that will benefit from such trainings.
