A wife should be like goddess sita, says the bombay hc

For justice and dignity

Mumbai:  

 

The Bombay High Court has observed that married women should take a cue from goddess Sita, who followed her husband Lord Ram even during his exile, while hearing a divorce petition on Tuesday, filed by a man on ground that his wife is unwilling to relocate to his new place of work.

"A wife should be like goddess Sita who left everything and followed her husband Lord Ram to a forest and stayed there for 14 years," a division bench of justices P B Majmudar and Anoop Mohta observed while hearing an appeal filed by an employee of the Shipping Corporation of India seeking divorce from his wife on the ground that she was not willing to shift with him to Port Blair where he was transferred. 

The couple had an arranged marriage in 2000. While the applicant's wife is a resident of Mumbai, he hails from Kolkata and continued to stay in Mumbai as he had been on ship duty for five years since they tied the knot.

 

In 2005 when he was given a land posting at Port Blair he called upon his wife to come and stay with him but she refused following which he filed for divorce. The couple has a nine-year-old daughter.

The court during the day tried to counsel the couple saying at least for the child's sake, the duo should reunite.

While the husband agreed to reconsider, the wife shot down  any kind of settlement. The court has posted the matter for further hearing on June 21

It is sad that pronouncements of our learned judges have become jokes that we laugh over in forums like this.

My thinking would be for hon'ble judges to refrain from personal or religious/ religion like comments.The common practice is for wife to stay with her husband. Unless she has valid reasons to stay away, one cannot or shouldn't deny that. It is like driving on one side of the road. Rules are there to make it safe, consistency etc If a wife wants to change those rules without sufficient cause-no one can make her stay. She is a person who has free will.The alternative is to grant divorce-consider that she has deserted her husband.No maintenance in such cases. Wife takes care of herself! It would be interesting to follow the outcome of the case.

I think Sameer, we should rather take the example of Dasarath who built Kopagrahas (anger abodes) where his spouses could work out their PMS troubles. Still, he got burnt by Kaikeyi who thus became the first among 498-a/DV females in our country even before these laws came into being. It is also worth noting that Kaikeyi lost her husband, son and everything and one never knows what happened to her.

May be the  learned judge should give up his judging and start doing pravachans in temples. He couldd sing bhajans as well which would be appreciated far more than his utterings from the bench.

Vishwa
