AHMEDABAD: Wife 1: 'It's getting boring and the mind thinks unnecessary things while sitting idle at home.'Wife2: 'Why not give wife swapping a try? till we don't try it how do we know it is bad for us all..' Wife3: 'My husband and I had participated in one encounter with swinging. There are many clubs in New York city, where you can become a member of the swinging clubs.' Shocked? This is a line of conversation on an internet chat group formed by Indian wives in the US on H-4 visas.
Most of them are highly-qualified women who left plush jobs in India to move to the US on H-4 a visa that prohibits you from working in the land of opportunities.
As this correspondent tried to be one of them in one such chat group, all the horror stories of spouses on H4 dependent visas suddenly came to life.
The H-4 dependent visa holders mostly women are denied social security numbers and, in many states, even driver's licences.
This has led to distress, low self-esteem and even an identity crisis.
A survey done on these H-4 visa holders by a US-based attorney Shivali Shah reveals that the H-4 issue creates an extreme dependence on the primary visa holder, and even ends up in broken marriages or wife abuse.
