Nagging by wife

Wife not ready to live at residence of husband would not amount to nagging or cruelty
Nagging means constant persuading or complaining to do something or refrain from doing something. If the wife was not ready to live and made her intention clear not to live with the petitioner, that could not amount to nagging as such. At the most, it could be said that when wife found that her husband was not ready to shift to Nagpur she made her intention clear that she did not want to stay at Bhandara with the petitioner. I do not think that this act on the part of the respondent/wife could be said to be nagging at all. Even assuming that there was some kind of nagging or persuasion to the husband to shift to Nagpur from Bhandara, such persuasion could not be treated as a cruelty. Something more is required to be proved to make out case of cruelty.

Nagging apart from physical violence, may constitute behaviour is such a way that the petitioner cannot reasonably be expected to live wirth the pther spouse will amount to cruelty.

Suppose husband is a womanizer and wife daily has fight with husband insisting husband to live the habit or prevents him to go with such friends..does this amount to cruelty?

Very unsociable woman.:) Now a days being unsociable is being stupid.  If husband goes after women, she should go after men.  Modern Indians say "what is wrong in it yaar"?

Whether man or woman it hurts to know that the life partner has world other than him/her. My personal view is it is not cruelty but love. One must be luck to have such wife or husband who demands entire attention be paid to him or her only.


Thanks for spreading love buddy !!
