How to handle a situation where the husband is demanding divorce by accusing the wife with a series of false allegations like the wife returns home drunk at midnight, performs illicit work, has boyfriends, etc? Only allegations, no evidence. The wife is a very chaste and noble lady. A simple and committed wife. No question of any boyfriend ever. She is strictly a teetotaller, doesn't even drink tea forget touching alcohol.
How should she handle such venomous allegations? How to prove that she is chaste and teetotaller and doesn’t perform any illicit work? Any medical test to prove she is a teetotaller? Does the onus lies on her to prove her innocence or the court will straight away reject her husband's allegations due to absence of evidence?.........Arranged marriage, short duration, wife thrown out, husband wants divorce, wife didn’t comply.
Is there any legal or non-legal step the wife can take to punish the husband (financially or non-financially) for such deliberate assault on her character? Or the court itself will punish the husband once the allegations prove to be concocted? If yes, what are the punishments? ......Don’t say to file a DV case or sign the divorce papers, because that is exactly what the husband wants – divorce. The wife is eager to save the marriage; divorce is not the solution here.
