No ceiling, in recent judgement passed by the Hon'ble Supreme court all ceiling has been held not valid.

THANKS for the response .

What does that mean whatever  she ask we have to give .

For women and a child if they ask for 50 k ,it doesnt seems reasobale .

I read some where that the wife should be provided to maintain her similar life status in case she is dependent.

But it cannot be beyod husband means. Two seperate family is always more costly.

Now what  happens when wife earns more then husband, can he ask for maintenance?

If wife earns more than husband definition of CrPC section 125 is not valid.... only politician can help the wife by passing new law for earning wife...

supabcdefgh (teacher)     10 August 2011

You know why our man's situation will not improve? Because when wife's income is more,

you still think of compensation to wife, not to husband. Can't the husband ask support?
