Hi Law Abiding Citizen,
I can understand the pain that you are going through.
You are not alone.
You are one of the hundreds of husbands that are going through same pain right this minute across India.
Here is my suggestion.
Indian marital law is fully one sided and blindly supports women.
So, do not take any legal steps first from your side.
It is very difficult to prove cruelty and you will waste lots of years in court.
Save all the voice recording proofs of her atrocity.
If possible, try to get video recording as well.
Then send a registered letter to your wife and in-laws about all the pain that you are going through.
Indicate all the attempts that you made to save marriage and about part of the proof that you have against their atrocity.
Mention all instances with date/tiem when she threatened you and when your in-laws threatened you.
Ask them to settle the matters amicably and help you to lead a peaceful matrimonial life.
Then send a lawyer notice [not a court notice] as well.
Then give time for them to change for good.
Give as much time as required till they come back to you or they take any legal step.
Then you can respond.
It may take months but worth the wait rather than taking hurried legal actions which will all benefit only your wife.
She will get away with lot of money from you and waste your precious years of life.
Take it from me that they can never put you in jail as new supreme court guidelines prevents unjustified arrests.
Never ever respond angrily to your wife or her parents.
But record all their conversations.
And finally, if you have completely lost all love and trust on your wife, then pursue for MCD - mutual consent divorce.
You never file for divorce first. You will suffer a lot.
The members of this forum and I wish that your matrimonial disputes are solved sooner and you are able lead a happy life as a couple.
