generally women get that privilege pls mr sunil.
what is the cruelty you have to clearly define, that word is dicey, subject to interpretation ..nothing settled on that so called word 'cruety' ; what is cruelty to me is not crelty to you, as the word is subjective.
presence of dog not accepted buy wife can certainly be a crelty too.
i do not sit on any judgement here.
as the matter has gone to the court let the court decide;
before matter is pushed into court, one has to take care to ensure settle things amicably. that is prudence.
