What if Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were Indians?
She would have been called names by her partner's family and Pattinson would have been protected from her by friends. While cruel and harsh it may sound, they would never have ended together.

CHEATING ON one's partner is a deal breaker for most of the people, but it also depends on the magnitude of the cheating and the amount of love the besotted partner is in to actually forgive and forget.

The biggest example for such a scenario in modern times would be Robert Pattinson forgiving Kristen Stewart for her 'momentary indiscretion' with Rupert Sanders. The couple are back together and practically living together again; had it been in India the story would have been a tad different.

In India 'what the society will think' is a far greater issue than the issue itself. Granted that celebrity life is different from the layman's life, yet even those people do not like to go against the flow. There is not a single person in Bollywood who had an affair, got caught, said sorry to his partner and stayed together.

Normally it goes in a very different fashion. People do have affairs about which their partners are very much aware but they choose to look the other way as no one can prove anything while they stay together. Thus affairs do not culminate into splits as they never see the light of the day.

We must congratulate both Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson for handling the matter in a very logical yet sensitive way. The most striking part was that none of their friends or co workers took any side and let them work out the problem together- a rarity in India.

Being strongly opinionated, the friends often become judgmental and give advices to vulnerable people that might worsen the entire thing. Speaking from personal experiences what might appear to be good advice at a time often turns out to be the worst.

The concept of counseling is also absent in India and that is a huge setback. While Pattinson and Stewart allegedly took to counseling to sort out their affairs, no one in India would actually think of such a thing. As for most it would be a waste of time, energy and money. Thus if Pattinson and Stewart were Indians, splitsvilla would have been the only solution.
