Single mum Karisma Kapoor is all set to make a life-changing decision
This was long time coming for single mum Karisma Kapoor and we wish her the best!
In our country a divorced, single mother is often ostracized by the society. She is looked down upon and sometimes even humiliated for her decisions. And if she happens to be a celebrity living her life in the public eye, the scrutiny is even more cruel.
That's exactly what happened during the initial days of Karisma Kapoor's separation with her then husband Sunjay Kapur. She was judged for her decision to stay in Mumbai with her kids while her husband was largely ignored by the media.
But it seems that with time everything has calmed down and people are supporting single mum Karisma for her sheer grit to raise her two kids by herself and lead an independent life.
Not to forget, her family has always stood by her and she was also finally granted a divorce last year.
So there is no reason why Karisma cannot move forward in her life and it seems that she has taken a big decision that could potentially change her life forever.
Just a few months back, it was speculated that Karisma found love in Mumbai-based businessman Sandeep Toshniwal. The only hurdle however, was Toshniwal's impending divorce. But it seems that problem is about to be solved in just a month.
Toshniwal is reportedly hopeful of getting a divorce from wife Dr Ashrita on his July 19 divorce hearing. And once that is done and dusted with, he is likely to propose marriage to single mum Karisma Kapur.
“There’s a loose talk of Sandeep proposing marriage to Karisma and purchasing a three-bedroom home in Juhu," a source told a daily.
If this happens the first people to support Karisma would be her family. In fact, if you recall dad Randhir Kapoor hinted at the prospect of a wedding a few weeks back.
“I think Lolo is very well settled and happy. I have never discussed the issue of marriage with her but if she does plan to, she will always have my blessings. But I don’t think she wants to get married," he said.
Well, she may not be ready right this second but given how comfortable Sandeep and Karisma have been in making public appearances together, they may take their relationship to the next level.
And since her two kids have already met Toshniwal and are comfortable with their mum settling down again, there may not be a reason for Karisma to hold back.
But this comfort for the kids cannot be achieved overnight. Separated couples have to make a lot of effort to make sure that the kids are comfortable with new partners of their parents. And the way to do that is through these simple steps.
- Be honest with them: Telling your kids the truth about what’s going on is paramount. Tell them why the marriage failed, but do it without badmouthing your former spouse. Admit to your own mistakes and faults that contributed to the failure of the marriage – kids see these things clearly anyway! Reassure them that it was in no way their fault. Tell them you love them unconditionally and you’re committed to help them through the difficult road that lies ahead.
- Protect your kids from negativity: Being honest with your kids does not require that you expose them to all the violence of emotion involved. Keep the negativity as private as possible.
- Don't use your kids as spies: Adults have to learn to talk. If you have something to tell your former spouse, don’t ask your kids to tell them for you; tell them yourself.
