"walking out is the right option."
Bollywood actress Minissha Lamba has opened up about her toxic relationship with her now-ex-husband Ryan Tham.
Lamba often talks about her separation from Tham, the owner of a nightclub in Mumbai.
The pair tied the knot in 2015, but called it quits in 2020.
Now, the actress has discussed her separation from Ryan Tham and believes that walking away is sometimes the best option.
Minissha Lamba revealed all in an interview with Navbharat Times.
She said that there used to be a stigma surrounding divorce in society. However, things have changed now that women are more self-dependent.
Lamba said: “Earlier, only women were responsible to bear the burden of a relationship.
“They had the sole responsibility for all the sacrifices (required).
“But now, they have understood that they have the right to walk out if they are not happy in the marriage.”
Minissha Lamba continued to say that if you are in an unhappy or unhealthy relationship, the best choice to make is to leave.
The actress added:
“Divorce is not easy but when the relationship is toxic, walking out is the right option.
“I would like to add that relationship or marriage can be an important part of your life but it cannot be your complete life.
“Unfortunately, women are recognised by their relationships and marital status.
“However, things are now changing.”
Despite being unhappy in her marriage, Minissha Lamba also clarified that her separation has not made her bitter when it comes to love.
Minissha Lamba and Ryan Tham announced their divorce in 2020.
During a conversation with ETimes, Lamba said:
“Ryan and I have parted ways amicably. The legal separation has been done.”
Minissha Lamba is very open about her separation from Ryan Tham and often speaks publicly about her opinions on love and relationships.
In an interview shortly after announcing her divorce, Lamba said:
“Life goes on and the important thing is to be happy. If something is not working, part ways amicably.
“Today we have options for that; there is no stigma attached to separation.”
The actress also added that all women want love. She said:
“Everyone is open to love, the dizziness, the craziness of love. Which woman won’t be open to love?
“She may have had a bad experience and she may say she doesn’t want it but if it comes knocking on the door, she will break down the walls and let it in.”
