    Re: The women start getting sacred of their husbands.

    Tufguy, note that your thread title says sacred where you meant "scared". These similar-looking words mean very different things. Sacred has two syllables; scared​ has one. Please look both words up in a dictionary and note their pronunciation and meaning.

    Re: The women start getting sacred of their husbands.

    I probably wouldn't use "in the XXX religion". I would use the religion as an adjective and move it to the start of the sentence. Let's take "Christian" as a random example.

    Christian women start being scared of their husbands from the day they marry.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Can we say "From the day they marry them or they get married to them (them means their husbands) or from the first day of their marriage"?

    Re: The women start getting sacred of their husbands.

    tufguy, have you considered that such a sweeping generalisation about all women of a certain religion is utterly preposterous and clearly unfounded and unprovable?

    Please read about what is happening in India. "Uniform Civil Code" women of "x" religion want change and they are weeping. They are saying it on telivision as well.
