Parents with only daughter/s should not be left alone due to indian marriage tradition

This petition had 60 supporters

In our country almost everyone is fighting for gender equality and i see  this as a huge factor which dominate large issues.

We in india follow a tradition of 'kanya daan' but in my opinion a girl is no commodity that can be given to someone. Today girls take care of their family financially as well as emotionally but after marriage she has to leave her house and go to her husbands place which makes her feel helpless as she might or might not be able to fulfil her responsibilities fully. When it comes to a family having a single daughter or daughters the girl's parents often end up living alone having an  isolated life which is indeed a sad situation as elderly need their emotional as well as financial support at that age along with physical presence. Why a parent of a boy gets that luxury unlike parents of a daughter? I request every guy to take a pledge to take full responsibility of both families by making them live close to them similar to how he plans for his parents if he plans to get married to a girl who is the only daughter of the family. I request everyone to sign this petition and spread the thought so we can take a step toward gender equality, happy living for our senior citizens anyone and everyone along with eventually reducing the female foeticide and many other caused due to these old traditions. My only motive here is to make this world a better place to live in for OUR PARENTS. As i don't see any difference between a parent of a girl or a boy so why their destiny should be different!
