You have stars in your eyes. You have finally found the girl of your dreams who will be your partner in all your life’s endeavours. Your family is happy. You talk to your fiance everyday and you have great plans for the future. All is well with the world.
The wedding was simple. You and your family don’t believe in dowry so never asked for anything. You gave your fiance all that she asked for..jewellery , dressed and what not. All is well. Everyone is happy.
You are finally married to the girl of your dreams. She is living with you. No one says anything to her. She wakes up at her own time, does whatever she wants to do and is constantly on the phone with her family. Homesickness happens you tell yourself. She must be missing her parents you think.
She tells you she wants to go home. She tells you that she will be back soon
After a week, you get a notice and the police call you. A dowry case you ask? A domestic violence case? I didn’t do anything you say.
The police tells you to come to the station and tell your version. There you meet the girl and his family who are looking at you as if you have done something horrible.
You wonder what happened…and it finally dawns on you..your wife has filed a false domestic violence and 498a and she wants money!
Now your life is literally screwed because your wife has filed the case in her parents place which means you will have to travel up and down or give money..
So do you still want to get married to the girl of your dreams?
Run while you still have the chance!!
One thought on “Men please read 498A and domestic violence laws before you get married or even decide to live-in”
But our Women organisations believe and even #MiLord of Sc says , there cn’t be believe that A Mother in law ( MIL) who does not demand dowry ?
