Indian cricketer Shikhar Dhawan and his wife Ayesha Mukherjee have parted ways after eight years of marriage. Ayesha took to her social media accounts to confirm the news and penned a lengthy note, speaking about how she always thought divorce was a dirty word until she became “2 time divorcee.” In her post, Ayesha also wrote about her two failed marriages and stated that she felt like she had more to prove post her second divorce.
Sharing a photo of herself, Ayesha, who is a Melbourne-based boxer, wrote, “I THOUGHT DIVORCE WAS A DIRTY WORD UNTIL I BECAME A 2 TIME DIVORCEE. Funny how words can have such powerful meanings and associations. I experienced this first hand as a divorcee. The first time I went through a divorce I was soooooooo fu@kn scared. I felt like I had failed and I was doing something so wrong at that time. I felt as if I had let everyone down and even felt selfish. I felt that I was letting my parents down, I felt that I was letting my children down and even to some extent I felt as if I was letting God down. Divorce was such a dirty word.”
Her post further read, “So now imagine, I have to go through it a second time. That is terrifying. Being divorced once before already, felt like I had more at stake the second time round. I had more to prove. So when my second marriage broke down it was really scary. All the feelings I felt when I went through it the first time came flooding in. Fear, failure and disappointment x 100. What does this mean for me? How does this define me and my relationship to marriage?” ALSO READ: Post Cancellation Of IPL, Shikhar Dhawan Receives The COVID-19 Vaccine Jab; Tweets ‘Please Do Not Hesitate And Get Yourself Vaccinated As Soon As Possible’
