request you kindly enlighten me on my query
my wife had prohibited me from entering the rented home which i had taken to live along with her.
she cited reasons as her sleeps gets disturbed because i come late in the night (3:00 am) after my shift, so she warned me of dv act and complaint to police, also she citied reasons that because i visit my parents, i should bettter stay there (she hated that i visited my parents)
i complained in writing of this behavior to the womens assistance cell of police. to counsel my wife on this issue. but she did not turn up for counselling. she just attended one session. where she has given her attendance. and futher never turned up for a month and half, because of this behavior. i prefferred staying with my parents and gave this in writing to the womens cell that " because my wife is prohibiting me from entering my own home. and is also not coming the police for counselling, i am staying with my parents. " i visited her twice a week and gave her money to spend, and i also kept paying the rent of the house. she took money from me but did not let me stay with her.
after my file was closed at the womens cell. because she never turned up.
I really do not know what were you doing until all this. If I were you, I would have sent her a lawyer’s notice to mend her behavior. Would have waited for some days and filed a RCR, collect all evidence of the women’s cell, that she never came to counseling etc. Prohibiting entry of husband into his own house warrants for a divorce.
she suddenly appeared before them and filed a cross statement (not a complaint) that it is me who is not staying with her. and i come late in the night and she is staying alone since the last month, and i wll only stay with my husband only when he takes good care of me," after this statement she went away with her parents. after six months she has filed RCR. and i have already filed for divorce
my question is : does not staying with her amount to cruelty to her?
Not cruelty exactly, but yes it amounts to not taking care of her, but there will be trial in which you can tell all what she did, but no law says that you have to be with wife 24 X 7 with her, taking good care of her, and making her sleep in your lap! And you have all the points at the women cell to tell in your reply to her RCR, she was not allowing you inside the house stating that you come late, she wont get sleep etc. I mean what kind of wife will give all these reasons and yet say mend yourself and come stay with me!
as she her self prevented me from coming in the house and i had asked her to come to police if she had any problem from me, she threatened me with DV cases
request you to kindly advice on this mattter
Arey bhai, itne der tak aap kya karrahe the? You should have been swift in your actions. Even now nothing has much happened in terms of damage. You can reply to that RCR filed by her as above. State all the facts and let us see what she will tell for that in mediation.
