Pativrata dharma is mentioned everywhere. As per this every wife has to obey, worship and serve her husband. She can even be beaten by him if required.

But some feminists and apologists are saying there is PATNIvrata "dharma" in Hinduism!! I have found this nowhere even in left-handed path scriptures like Tantra, let alone right-handed scriptures like Vedas, Puranas and Itihasa.

Is such a dharma sanctioned or even mentioned anywhere (even by a villain, uneducated person or foolish character)?

  • EkaPatniVrata is there, right?

    @YDS that's not a "dharma" or way of life like Pati-Vrata. It is just a single a vow. I wanted to know if there is any such "dharma" as modern people are saying............ The link you have sent is feminist extremist commentary / personal opinion. There is no mention of such a dharma in any verse. If you have verses which say patnivrata dharma please mention. Sacred scripture only. No feminist commentaries!
