I have been married for the last 3 years thru one of the online matrimony portals.. and have been living an extremely stressful life for the past 1.5 years. My wife is extremely dominating and threatens me for putting false allegations on me when we have any argument. She says that the law in India is extremely favoring ladies and she can destroy me whenever she wants. There was an instance about 6 months back when she even called the police after an argument over Television! And started speaking out stuff such as dowry, domestic violence etc etc with the police. I am alone in my family (don’t have parents) and am living under extreme stress for a long time.. she has even threatened me to get her family to beat me up on some occasions. In the house, there are maids etc for everything, so she does not even move a foot for any household stuff.
In some recent instances, she has become extremely aggressive where she abuses me and even gets physical some time.. She is confident that if I even touch her she will call the police and make a case of domestic violence. Also, she says that she will never leave this house if I apply for divorce as it is her right and will destroy me.
I don’t want to continue to live like this and need legal help.. Can I not do anything in the Indian law to protect me? How do I get separated from her? Can I file for a divorce and live separately? I am under IMMENSE stress and mental agony.. Can you pls help me and guide me in taking the right direction..
