Jaydon Parker's curator insight, October 23, 2013 10:42 AM

This relates to Half the Sky because it is telling how couples strugle with seperation issues. The article is saying that the couples have to work in different places , so they have t live apart. I do agree wit this because if the woman is unhappy why should shje be living with someone that is constantyly abusing or beating her. They have no rights. I don't think this is a valid source because it tells how couples are sad while they are seperated, while some want to be seperated.
