Kolkata: It’s disheartening when a marriage fails. And if you are a two-time divorcee, then the pain is unbearable. Indian cricketer Shikhar Dhawan and his wife of nine years Ayesha Mukherjee have called it a day on their marriage.
Ayesha who was divorced once before she tied the knot with the flamboyant southpaw, broke the disillusioning news on Instagram today. However, Shikhar hasn’t made any statement as of now.
It was a fairy tale marriage between the two that made headlines. Ayesha who is based in Melbourne, Australia has two daughters from her first marriage and a son Zoravar from Shikhar. Ayesha and son were a regular feature on Shikhar’s tours and everything looked hunky dory until the unfortunate news was divulged.
“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,” Ayesha wrote.
And she added, “So now imagine, I have to go through it a second time. Woooahhhhhh. 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?”
Well, from our side, we can only pray and hope they find solace and happiness wherever they wish to.
