You cannot stop your wife to exhaust her legal rights in filing the petitions seeking maintenance and even she cannot be pressurized in any way to come to a one time settlement.
You should avail the services of middleman or elders or common relatives for the negotiation. Matrimonial disputes are humanitarian and need Handle with Care. If the matter is not cared with seriousness then it invites reaction which generally remainns equal and in opposite direction.
