I got married on 29th June,2012. This was an arranged marriage. Since the time I got engaged, the boy's family had been raising issues unnecessarily. We ignored them all, thinking that everything would be okay with time. But, the problems have increased with time, as the boy and his family have continued, blaming me and my parents for not fulfilling demand, which they call customs. Boy's mother had several times, taunted me for not giving her a gold chain, in marriage. She has been shouting that her son is CA. and so, he and his family should have been treated in a completely respectful way( According to them, we have insulted them by giving them less than expected at different occasions.)
I would like to mention that we come from a marwari (rajasthani) background.
My husband usually behaved normal when we were together alone, but whenever, his mother used to raise issues, related to my family and relatives, he used to get aggressive, and even beat me. He sometimes, behaved very weird, when he used to shout at me, in front of everybody without any logic.
Now, my husband had abused my mother on phone, in front of me, and he never liked my talking to my parents. This leveled up my frustration and I started talking to my mom secretly. My husband doubted, and got the details from telephonic company, and beat me up for that. Thereafter, he raised his hand several times for absolutely foolish reasons, even when the matter was not related to me.
Besides this, his younger brother used to keep a phone on recording phase to record my conversation with my parents and friends. This, he did for lot of days. On discovering that I used to talk to my mother and tell her all about the matter secretly, (sometimes using bad words for them), created a scenario and the issue raised to extremely high level of aggressiveness. I could not tolerate then, and decided to come back to my parents. Now, from the last four months, I am with my parents, and did not have any word with my husband.
I want to get divorce now, and take back all my belongings from there, including gifts given by my parents in marriage. I don't want any maintenance from him. All I want is separation.
I wish to know, whether I can file a case against my brother in law, for hindering my privacy,(as he recorded my conversation with mom). I did talk about them, for taking my frustration out, but isn't it wrong to record talks like this. Can any legal action be taken against him.
