Why didn’t Kamal Haasan’s relationships work?

The actor doesn’t believe in the institution of marriage. He was earlier following the ‘herd mentality’ but now he’s learnt to follow his own heart

“I never believed in marriage. People marry because of peer pressure but I don’t subscribe to the herd mentality. I shouldn’t have married. I married for the convenience of my women. Vani wouldn’t live-in and I wasn’t strong enough to put my foot down. And the society was such that Sarika and I couldn’t book a hotel room together even after we had two daughters.” He adds, “But Gouthami is very different. She is a very progressive lady, and not just to please me.”
