Social Deviance Cases
Social deviances; thories and its applications
CASE 1:

This is a real case of middle class family. The main characters of case are Miss. Nadia and Mr. Ali. The case revolves around Miss. Nadia who is the main character in the case; she is taken as the deviant personality in this case. Miss Nadia belonged to a middle class family living in Rawalpindi. Family of Miss Nadia consisted of six members; Father, mother, three sisters including Miss. Nadia and one brother Mr. Ayaz. Mr. Ayaz was the eldest of all brothers and sisters while Miss. Nadia was eldest of the sisters.

Mr. Ali was cousin of Miss. Nadia. Mr. Ali belonged to a middle class family comprising of six persons parents of Mr. Ali and four brothers including Mr. Ali. Mr. Ali was the third son out of the four sons of his parents. Both father and mother of Mr. Ali died away one after other when the eldest brother of them all was of 22, while the remaining brothers were in their teenage. Mr. Ali was hard working and he did some educational courses after his Bachelors degree. He got a good job in a textile industry where he worked for some time. In 1979, one of his friends sponsored him for Kuwait. He availed the chance and went to Kuwait. There he worked for some years and after working hard for some two to three years, he got a job in an organization that provided catering and food services to Kuwaiti Airlines.

Miss Nadia got married in year 1990 with Mr. Ali. At the time, the age gap between the two of them was about 10 years as Mr. Ali was near thirty-four years and Miss. Nadia was about twenty-three years. The marriage was an arranged marriage with consent of both families. Although there was surely a big age gap between both of them; probably the close family ties and financially sound position of Mr. Ali was the reason behind the marriage.

At the time of marriage, Mr. Ali took permitted leave from his job for about three months. When he was on leave, the war between Iraq and Kuwait broke out and undue circumstances made it difficult for him to go to Kuwait for almost a year. The job was under a contract and due to long leave, he lost his job. His plan was to take her wife with her for Kuwait but circumstances made it difficult for him to take her along with him to Kuwait. The family of Mr. Ali was in Sargodha and were living their in their ancestors home; one of his elder brother was married at that time. He felt that it will be difficult for Nadia to live there so he allowed her to live with her parents and family in Rawalpindi. Mr. Ali went to Kuwait once again in late 1992, it took some time for him to find a good job but he was able to get it in a few months. In 1993, a baby was born to them whom they named \u201cFizza\u201d. Mr. Ali had permitted leave of 40 days every year that he used to enjoy with his wife Nadia and daughter in Pakistan. He performed every duty as Husband other than the mistake that he was not able to take her wife and daughter along with her. Even he supported the family of Miss. Nadia. Who dislikes money coming in at ease, so family of Miss. Nadia used Nadia to cheat Mr. Ali for money and means of luxury e.g. they said Nadia to demand money from him to purchase a second hand car, later they demanded money from him for purchase of plots. Mr. Ali thought it as their need and provided them with the money they demanded. Miss Nadia used car for about one year

and then her brother suggested her to sell car and show to Mr. Ali that the car has been snatched on gunpoint by thieves. Mr. Ali trusted her and said nothing to her about this. Miss. Nadia decided to take advantage of her and sold that two plots also and said to Mr. Ali that the registry of plots were fake. Such cheats by the family of Miss. Nadia made Mr. Ali to think that Nadia as well as her family is cheating him. Such acts of cheating widened the gap between the husband and wife. Moreover, Miss. Nadia was eager for more and more money he found another person as a boy friend named \u201cShahid\u201d who was far more settled and strong financially. This made her to think that if she files case for taking \u201cKhulaa\u201d from Mr. Ali and then marry Mr. Shahid then her remaining life will be far more luxurious than she at that time had. She filed the case for \u201cKhulaa\u201d and won that case. Mr. Ali and his family made their best efforts to resolve matters of conflict but Nadia\u2019s family did not make serious efforts for that and Nadia won Khulaa case as well as case for custody of \u201cFizza their daughter\u201d in 2001. Miss. Nadia married Mr. Shahid afterwards. Tensions of Divorce and distance from his daughter Fizza made him the patient of Blood pressure and sugar. Hepatitis-C also diagnosed in 2006. In 2007, Mr. Ali decided to come back to Pakistan as he got serious health sufferings. At last, he died in late 2007. His daughter came to his home on his death with permission of Miss. Nadia for half an hour. No one from her family condoled Mr. Ali\u2019s family. Miss. Nadia now is planning to file case for the part in property of Mr. Ali in the name of Fizza but the family of Mr. Ali wants that part of the property will be given to Fizza at time of her marriage so that Miss. Nadia does not do anything bad with her. The case is filed in the court of justice.

Applications of theories for social deviances in Case 1
In the first case, following are the theories applicable to the social deviances exhibited by
the main character that is Miss. Nadia.
\u2022
Psychological theory
\u2022
Transition neighborhood
\u2022
Social class and structure

First of all let us discuss how the psychological theory can be implemented to find out the causes for the socially deviant behavior displayed by Miss. Nadia. Psychologists believe that the deviance occur due to any kind of mental problem. Every individual has some defined role in the society and he is expected to fulfill that role. Now when the person fails to comply with the specified role then this can create frustration and mental disorders and this ultimately leads to a deviant behavior. Miss. Nadia got married to a person who was 10 years older that her. This must be kept into consideration. There are a lot of cases around us in which these kind of marriages do not go anywhere else than complete fiasco. It surely is a fact that the lady would not have expected this from her parents and she failed to come in terms with what she had got and what she was required to do as a wife. These kinds of marriages do create frustration as the bride may feel that she had been manhandled or she had been a victim of social injustice. Secondly as her

husband was not able to take her with him, so he could not do what he was ought to. That could also have played a part in creating some mental dissatisfaction which resulted in her finding another man. It was like getting out of jail for her and the way out. Her parents were also behind her so that made it easy for her to get out.

Now let us move to the second theory that is the transition neighborhood. This theory suggests that deviance is a social decease and it is transferable from one person to another or from one generation to another. It is a huge fact that Miss. Nadia\u2019s parents were somewhat greedy about the strong financial state of Mr. Ali and that may have caused the marriage. They wanted to have what they did not have and that was wealth. They were not bothered about what they did for money. This socially deviant behavior may have got propagated to their daughter and the result was always bound to be chaos as we did see in the case.

The differences in the social classes and the inappropriate distribution of money can always harm the society. Karl Marx had said that economic and social injustice can result in a socially deviant behavior. That is exactly what had happened here. The family of Miss. Nadia did not have the wealth and the financial strength that Mr. Ali had at that time. They used Miss. Nadia as a tool for snatching it from Mr. Ali. This thought may have lead to the distrust created between the couple. Miss. Nadia did every bit to get more and more money and did never take care of the relation she had with Mr. Ali. So that is how the whole case folds with the application of some theories for the deviant behaviors.3
