Abandonment for refusing to pay dowry
« on: August 27, 2016, 12:54:25 PM »
What kind of justice does an working woman get from the court when her husband dumps her for not giving dowry?She is also threatened with defamation notice for not giving divorce because she refused to give dowry.Can the working woman claim anything in damage? A father saves money for his daughter's wedding and the groom just treats his in laws' money like tissue paper as the groom is not going to lose anything even if the marriage fails as the constitution does not protect working women from dowry harassment.Infact working women cannot be harrassed by men in India it seems.((If dowry is illegal in India can men demand divorce for not giving dowry?)) Women can't claim anything in damage?

My sister is married to an NRI,he didnot take her with him to US at all.He called my sister 15 days after reaching US and said that our father had to give all that his mother and sister asked. He didn't want dowry before marriage but changed his stance post marriage.Dowry demand started within a month  of marriage and he also boasts that many girls were waiting in line with loads of dowry money to marry him and he also says that our father has spent nothing to suit his stature and also says that his dowry demands were very less and says that he will not return to India and my sister cannot claim damages from him as she is working .We have recorded all his chats and mails regarding his persistent mails demanding dowry and divorce.

The content of his divorce notice was just disgusting.

Dear Ma'am,

Please suggest your sister to file for dowry harassment criminal criminal against the husband and in-laws for dowry harassment. If the case continues and there is no settlement in terms of staying together or anything else then you may also suggest her to file for maintenance and residence order under Domestic violence act.

If she is interested in working out the marriage then leave the aforesaid cases and file for restitution of conjugal rights petition under section 9 of hindu marriage act for joining the company of the husband.

It is very unfortunate that educated people are still believing in dowry principle which is illegal. Anyway, try to mutual this situation as far as possible otherwise legal steps and procedures are always open which results to end of marriage tie up. My suggestion will be first try to make them understand the situation gently and politely. If it is found that they are desperate and vindictive in attitude, then it will be unfortunate and have to decide by the girl whether to continue with those greedy in laws or not.
