Fashion model turned actress Rubya Chaudhry has opened up about her divorce and believes that divorce doesn’t always mean sadness.
In 2016, Rubya Chaudhry got married to musician Mekaal Hasan in a private function. However, their marriage did not last for much time.
Recently, the Mission Karachi actress took to her Instagram and told how people have stigmatized ‘divorce’ and raised a voice for every divorced woman who goes through all the taunts from other people.
“I always knew people can be crass and ill-mannered, but there isn’t anything like experiencing it first hand. I don’t even so much as humour these types usually, but in some situations, one just HAS to put their foot down.”

“I got married a few years ago, and then got divorced super quickly after. And that’s that really. Never really put my private life up for people to speculate about in the first place, but I don’t blame them for being curious about such matters. Well, now you know.”
Rubya highlighted that divorce does not mean the end of life and said,
“I’d also like to add that divorce doesn’t always mean sadness and death and hayay hayay yeh kya hogya! Hayayyy bachi ki zindagi tabaaah ho gai! It could also mean bachi ki zindagi tabaah honay say BACH gayee. It also means a second chance at love, at life, at all the wonderfully amazing chapters that may have never actualized had you chosen the dead end as your destiny. Choose to thrive. Choose divorce if it ain’t your scene and stop worrying about all the ill-mannered and crass people around.”
She concluded by raising the spirits of all women whose marriage did not work out for them.
“And I didn’t have to share this. But this is not just about me, it’s about the hundreds of thousands of women who are made to feel like they should be ashamed if their marriages didn’t work out, who are told time and again by their own husbands and in-laws that there’s something wrong with them, that they need to change themselves to fit into some mold of the perfect wife (whatever that is), who’re gaslighted continuously and stripped off their vibrant personalities.”
