law does not stops any person to stay with his far as dowry allegations are concerned, there are both true and false cases in Indian Society.


unfortunately this law has been misused to a larger extent, but I am also aware of certain cases where in genuine cases the females have got nothing out of it.


already a lot has been discussed about this problem, but the ultimate authority lies with the legislative bodies to decide the structure of law required for the society.


the solution lies with the society itself, in fact we have been swayed by the luxuries....the day we will be able to consider the improtance of a human being most of such disputes will come to an end.

A husband even if he has become a sanyasi but still he has liability towards his wife and he cannot refuse to maintain her. Why had he married had he not been able to maintain her?


Had he become sanyasi why after eating the fruits of a married life????????


There is no law to exonerate him from his legal liabilities towards his wife and children and even he is liable to be tried under the law of land.
