A Wife can't pressurize her husband by filing 498A to live with her. A recent judgement from Supreme court come out stating the fact that a wife can't use 498A tool to just pressurize her husband to live with her.Filing false allegations in 498A itself termed as mental cruelty on husband and his parents as well as on relatives which are beyond repair once it goes for litigation.

in this particular judgement all terms of mental cruelty has been defined and also a clause of irretrievable break down of marriage and how it happens is well described.The learned J has emphasize the mediation part in marital disputes and it's core value for harboring the all small issues which goes for irretrievable break down of marriage afterwards.

Going through the judgement the highlight is the para below:

30. While we are of the opinion that decree of divorce must be granted, we are alive to the plight of the respondent-wife. The appellant-husband is working as an Assistant Registrar in the Andhra Pradesh High Court. He is getting a good salary. The respondent-wife fought the litigation for more than 10 years. She appears to be entirely dependent on her parents and on her brother, therefore, her future must be secured by directing the appellant-husband to give her permanent alimony. In the facts and circumstance of this case, we are of the opinion that the appellant-husband should be directed to pay a sum of Rs.15,00,000/- (Rupees Fifteen Lakhs only) to the respondent-wife as and by way of permanent alimony. In the result, the impugned judgment is quashed and set aside. The marriage between the appellant-husband - K. Srinivas Rao and the respondent-wife - D.A. Deepa is dissolved by a decree of divorce. The appellant-husband shall pay to the respondent-wife permanent alimony in the sum of Rs.15,00,000/-, in three instalments. The first instalment of Rs.5,00,000/- (Rupees Five Lakhs only) should be paid on 15/03/2013 and the remaining amount of Rs.10,00,000/- (Rupees Ten Lakhs only) should be paid in instalments of Rs.5,00,000/- each after a gap of two months i.e. on 15/05/2013 and 15/07/2013 respectively. Each instalment of Rs.5,00,000/- be paid by a demand draft drawn in favour of the respondent-wife “D.A. Deepa”.

It's very clear the b*tch was not pressurizing her husband to live with her, rather she was pressurizing to get what she wanted - MONEY! And boy she got it too!

Every 498a b*tch (wife) uses this 498A tool for one purpose and ONE PURPOSE alone! To just pressurize her husband to part with MONEY!

You are absolutely right. Woman file 498a just to extract money as much she can from her current husband. The motive behind to say "I want to live with my husband is only to divert & mislead the court to gain sympathy from it" as she knows pretty well that her husband will not accept her at anycost.
