Juvaria Abbasi is a senior Pakistani television and film actress who made her debut in 2006. Though Juvaria always appears in supporting roles yet she has a strong screen appearance and impresses everyone with her acting.
Juvaria Abbasi recently appeared in an interview with Fuchsia Magazine and opened up about her experience of being a single mother, and how she found it to be a completely liberating experience after her divorce. She spoke about how in our society, women are taught that they cannot survive without their husbands but she learned that after becoming financially independent she was able to take care of her daughter on her own.
“Our society loves telling women that they cannot survive in this world if they don’t have a husband to take care of them. But I don’t encourage this kind of thought process because it was not difficult for me at all. I have a good job from where I earn a good amount which allows me to have a comfortable lifestyle and also take care of my daughter. I’m proud of the person she has become since she’s well educated, well groomed and now is also working as an actress”, says Juvaria.
She further added “People make a lot of assumptions about how bad single motherhood is and might even think negatively of me since I’m an actress and now my daughter is an actress as well. But I am the sole person who took care of her alone and I think that I made my best effort in doing so, and I’m proud of the person she has become now.”
“I don’t think that marriage is wrong at all, but I don’t think that women should tolerate abusive situations. When I was divorced I was miserable for a long while. But I had a very supportive family surrounding me: my mother, my brother and my sister who also works in television. They never told me that I had ruined my life by getting divorced and supported me through this period as I earned alone and took care of my daughter. I’m also very happy that during the pandemic, I’ve seen young girls who are running businesses or doing jobs to become financially independent. It makes me so proud of them” mentioned Juvaria.
