I need your help to save the marriage of my sister. I know what I am writing below is terrible from our side but please help.
We married our sister to a well qualified boy but for the fear of losing a good match we lied about her education as she was not graduate and some health problem. He since then has discovered the lies. It is around 1 year since marriage and my sister is living with us fr last 2 month.
The boy is very aggressive and so my sister to avoid getting caught said few more lies and unfortunately got caught and which lead to regular fights between them. In fit of anger my sister inadvertently said some bad things about his family members when he said bad about her family (me and family) about lying about education etc.
The boy asked my sister for Mutual divorce and as we are not agreeing, he then threatened us that he will file for a contested divorce case. My family in hope to resolve the issue threatened him with domestic violence cases etc if he doesn’t take my sister back and shouted the lie about him beating my sister in his neighborhood however this move went wrong and further aggravated the boy. I know it was wrong move from our side but we did that in desperation.
We have since apologized to the boy but he is not agreeing. He got no documentary evidence about us lying about education. I know what we did was wrong and I am sorry for that but as they say “Vinashkaale viprit budhi”, now we want my sister to live happily with the boy. Please help with following 2 queries.
1. Can boy take the divorce based on fraud from our side lying about education or based on regular fights between couple or based on my family telling lies in his neighborhood? Are these sufficient?( My sister has later on passed her pending graduation exams.)
2. Incase divorce happens; based on the fact that boy is well settled and earning very high salary and we in comparison are not financially sound (Infect he helped us in wedding expenses). Will judge set the maintenance amount based on his salary? What are the basic criteria for setting the maintenance amount.
