Actually to maintain matrimonial relations are co-responsibilities of Husband and wife. To save family is important for indian society. But in India due to section 498, dowry related cases reducing. But now the Husband and inlaws who r not have moral responsibilities, have started new trend . they are doing mental harrassment . They know very well that in India court matters are not giving justice to women, if women will go to court she will have to wait for years and years. Court are giving only 2-5 % maintenace to the women . Further there are some special laws to get back stridhan and as per Hindu customs stridhan is righ of women however to get back it from stridhan they have to face lots of difficulties , long court procedure ,police complain etc.. After getting orders for nominal amount husband are not giving maintence. Some advocates are also not taking proper interest etc.
all this happens because maintence, stridhan, devorce related laws are not proper. All these laws are creats hardship to women. sometimes women thinaks that compare to Husband's misbehaviour laws creates lots of difficulties in there life. So, in most of the cases women have to take the decision of sattlement on nominal amount and women are not getting proper justice.
So, all these matter should be considered by govt and should have to make laws strong for women. i have experienced all this in my own personal life.
