i got married a 45 days back and my wife's mother came to home and my wife went with her within a 17 days of marriage. now after 3 days SI OF POLICE called my father saying that my wife's father/ my wife lodged a complained against me & my family that we are harassing her and insulting her father which may come under 498a-domestic violence and dowry prohibition. and adviced to " speak with them and get compromised and take her back to your house, otherwise we will move the petition to court". as my father is a govt. employee and my younger brothers are preparing for govt. jobs, will it affect them for their carrier? shall i look it legally? if so, how? please give me detailed procedure. can i go for divorce? or shall i wait till 1 year? she might not be ready to break up but tries to harass us by giving false allegations as most of the laws are pro-female. we have not taken any dowry but her parents gave some jewelry and a two wheeler only. in jewellery some ornaments also made to me . but earlier they accepted to give some amount infront of elders but we rejected the amount and if you are still interested to give, then make some gold ornaments to their daughter instead and they agreed. will it leads to dowry act or can it be considered as stridhan. as we are CHRISTIANS will stridhan applicable ?
