Parental intrusion ruining couples' marital life:Delhi HC


Dear All, 


The news article regarding observation of Hon'ble High Court of Delhi is given below.It clearly shows the casue and affect relationship between intrusion of parents of girls and its results but in any case the suffrer is boy so lets create momentus by sending representation,sms etc. so the parents of girls are also punished properly for ruining the the life of couples just for earning easy money.


Please also note that in addition to argument on this forum if you wish to derive any actual benefit then you will have to  create momentum against these baised laws and behaviours by sending representations and sms and uniting like minded persons by whatever means you can.


Thanks and take care

Parental intrusion ruining couples' marital life:Delhi high court



NEW DELHI: The interference of parents in the married life of their daughters has become a major cause for playing havoc with the lives of young couples post marriage, the Delhi high court has said.


Expressing concern over rift between couples due to parents' persistent interference in their daughter's married life, Justice Kailash Gambhir upheld a lower court's decree of divorce to a man on the ground of his in-laws' frequent interference in his marital life.


Justice Gambhir said parents should draw a line to let their daughters lead happy married lives.


"All parents guide, teach and discipline their daughters and are concerned about their welfare after marriage but it is imperative for parents to draw a line as the prime concern should be that their daughter is happily settled in a new atmosphere at the husband's place," he said.


But, it should not mean day-to-day monitoring of the affairs taking place at the matrimonial home of the daughter, he said.


Parents should not become uninvited judges of problems of their daughter, become an obstacle in the daughter's married life, plant thoughts in her mind and gain control over her and promote disharmony in her family life, the judge said.


"They are expected to advise, support and believe in their upbringing maintaining a discreet silence about the affairs of the matrimonial relationship," the court said.


"The present case is an unfortunate example where the parents of the appellant, instead of putting out the fire have fuelled and fanned it," the court said, dismissing an appeal filed by the wife challenging the lower court's order granting the man decree of divorce.


According to the husband, the difference with his wife started a few months after their marriage in 1990 due to frequent interference of his in-laws.


He alleged that he was even hit publicly by his father-in law two years after his marriage.


Seeking decree of divorce, he had approached the court, which allowed his plea on the grounds of cruelty by his wife due to continuous interference by his in-laws.


So, Unwanted intrusion  into their children's married life create a lot of problems leading to divorce.

Yes, we all should stand together and use this judgement to gain the momentum and start a new initiative so that these bad practices can be stopped and the wrong doers get punished.
