|i have not taken any dowry 1st case.. so why should i pay her almony....
Concept of marriage in India is life-long aliimony to wife, staying with you, you take care of her expenses, she does not stay with you, still you take care of her expenses, till the day she remarries or dies. Not taking dowry is your fault as per Indian standards, dowry is sort of safety deposit which intelligent men take in case marriage wont work or works and give same money back with little more which is interest for dowry taken. Anyhow, you will have to pay her alllimunny till the day she remarries or till the day she dies. Anotehr reason is you married in India, thats why u have to pay alimunny to munni.
