Sir, it wont need an article to prove that laws are meant to protect the victims and mete out justice. But the current issue of educated women misusing DV laws is in itself a potential social epidemic.
I have my own story to share with you all .... my FIL is arrogant and he incites my wife to be highly career oriented and forget the meaning of good married life .. My wife is also somewhat imature , i dont know if she acts like that or she really is ... There are so many missing strings in our relationships which neither my wife nor her parents wants to focus upon ... We got married on 18th June 2011 and started our family life on 3rd July 2011 ( there was only both of us in Pune at that time while my parents were living in my 100 KMs away hometown) During marriage we didnt ask for any dowry neither we were in favor of that ... but from that day onwards , it was a complete torture for me .. from 3rd July to 29th Dec . she stayed with me only for 2.5 months and also in that period , her parents were constantly in touch with her through phone like they daily used to call her for 3-4 hours ....
Then one day her sister told me about a job in Mumbai and asked me to switch to Core engg job from IT field .. Before my wife ran away on 29th Dec 2011 , 15 days ago she again called me and abused me for taking my wife to my parents place on weekly basis or once in 15 days ..
After my sucide attempt on 8th Feb 2012 , she returned back and got a job on 12th March 2012 but again she started complaining about her so called hectic schedule ..blah blah ... and when it was confirmed that she is preggy by 6 week and 6 days on 19th May 2012 .. she started creating scene and after 3 days she sent me a SMS telling me her decision to abort the child ... on 3rd June her dad , brother came and took her away to their place giving false promise of sending her back ... When I asked him to send her back he told me about his decision of giving divorce to me .. When i went their place for negotions , he threatened me and my father for lives and thrown us out ..on 30th June he came and took away all the househole items .. After this whole drama started off and he started abusing my parents, brother and me and asking my parents to force me to agree with his decision otherwise he would file DV cases , dowry cases etc etc...
I sent her a lawyer notice for coming back to my home within 7 days on 14th Aug .. but her dad replied through a lawyer notice asking for a divorce .. I stayed calm for a month which irritated him and finally on 29th Sept he filed for a divorce petition in Buldana( MH ) court which recieved on 20th Oct and i am summoned to the court on 3rd Nov 2012 ..
I have given just a summary of whole happenings here but for a further understanding of whole nonsense ,you can read my blog .. And guide me
Good article. I especially liked the suggestion of equipping daughters with legal education. Thanks for posting it
Is all the cases genuine or been filed to pressurise/blackmail the husband to bow down and accept her illegal demands.
I am simple human being ,My esperience says that Lawer mostly manipulate and drag the cases for years together for their narrow ends what is the use of wasting so many years in stupid game of Ego
Life has very vast spectrum

Nice article and I also salute this lady for her courage.
Yes..in family court...husband & wife can directly approach for divorce as such. But practically, a lawyer is always needed for proper legal guidance and smooth trial of the case.
there is no foolproof solution to this problem.Your concerns are highly appreciated. i agree with u ambrish.
CAN A LADY OR HUSBAND FILE FOR DIVORCE WITHOUT HELP OF ANY LAWYER....???? PLS. TELL ME
