Shikhar Dhawan and Aesha Mukherjee, who first met on Facebook, ended their nine-year-long marriage in September 2021. However, they have not revealed the reason for their separation. Despite the age gap, the couple fell in love, and after tying the knot in October 2012, they became parents to a son named Zoravar.
Recently, Dhawan spoke publicly about the end of his marriage, sharing how he and Aesha came to their decision to separate. Additionally, he spoke about his thoughts on remarriage and offered valuable advice to young people who are in relationships.
Dhawan admitted to his failure in the marriage, but he did not point fingers at anyone else. He took responsibility for his own decisions, and his divorce case is still ongoing. Although he did not rule out the possibility of remarriage, he is not currently considering it.
“I failed because the final decision is the person’s own. I don’t point fingers at others. I failed because I was not aware of that field. The things I talk about cricket today, I wouldn’t have been aware of the same 20 years back. It comes with experience,” Dhawan was quoted as saying on Sports Tak.
He added: “Right now my divorce case is going on. Tomorrow, if I want to marry again, I will be much more wiser in that field. I’ll know what kind of girl I need; someone whom I can spend my life with. When I was 26-27 and I was continuously playing, I was not in any relationship. I used to have fun, but was never in a relationship.
So, when I fell in love, I couldn’t see the red flags. But today, if I fall in love, I will be able to see those red flags. So, if I see those red flags, I will walk out. If not, I will carry on.”
In his advice to young people, Dhawan encouraged them to gain experience and to understand their partners before considering marriage. He suggested that they should spend time enjoying their partner’s company and building a strong foundation for a healthy relationship. Despite the challenges he has faced, Dhawan remains focused on his career and on being a good father to his eight-year-old son.
“Youngsters, when they get into relationships, they need to experience it. That’s important. They should not take an emotional decision in haste and get married. Spend a couple of years with the person and see whether your cultures match and whether you enjoy each others’ company.
“It’s also like a match; some might need 4-5 relationships, others might take 8-9 to figure things out. There is nothing bad in that. You will learn from it, and when you take a decision on marriage, you will have some experience,” he added further.
Speaking of cricket, the veteran India opener is set to lead Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the upcoming edition of IPL 2023.
