What about the child maintenance?


The correct answer is a qualified wife cannot sit idle at home and be at the mercy of husbands alimony.Child maintenance is the duty of the husband.

You can claim that she is able bodied, but you have to show her work edperience in the past.   Only a qualified spouse sitting idle nothing doing though she can get a job, is not entitled for maintenance.   Scoiety is not meant for creating army of idle people, this isnow held by manyHigh Court judges

I seriously don't get the double standard approach followed by various courts in India. We keep getting such references of Verdicts where qualified wife is denied maintenance , saying that they need to work . On the other hand if we prove that wife is working. Court starts comparing salaries to give maintenance in their favour. IMO the courts follow a arbitrary approach when awarding maintenance.

It is true that judgements are really inconsistent. Recently a Nagpur family court judge has given an order where he has instructed a husband to pay alimony to a jobless wife with Masters degree, and having no job experience. The reasoning is even more surprising, which says if a man marries a jobless woman, just by saying she has masters degree is not enough to avoid maintenance. Law is effectively asking men NOT to marry jobless women !!! Really hilarious.
