Eligibility for the maintenance


I am working as a sofware engineer in a private firm and earning around 40000 per month and my husband is also working as a sofware engineer in a private sector and earning around 90000 per month. we have some disputes and not staying together, if i apply for the divorce will i be eligible to receive maintenance from my husband? because i am also working and earning for my survival will the court consider my claim for the maintenance?

Too much education spoils the MIND.....Earlier days where gud when the parents of the girls used to marry in the early ages...no excess thinking no 498, No maintenance....life was coooooooooool


I wonder whether women empowerment is really empowering them when I see well-educated girls from good families pretending to be abla naris and praying for monthly kharcha pani.


India is shining.
