Do Indian marriage laws REALLY favor women?

Do marriage laws REALLY favor women?



Or is this favouritism only on paper?



What about corruption and loopholes in law,esp. when the boy's parties try to influence the girls' lawyers,police officers etc so that they don't support harassed women in court..



secondly,do laws really favour poor/jobless women who can't afford lawyers' fees,not to mention delayed court proceedings,regular leaves taken by judges,the rude attitude of police officers when women go there to file complaints against their abusive husbands/inlaws,,adjournments taken by the boy's party to delay the cases,etc.



then we have idiotic laws where a deserted married woman's hubby isn't taken to task when he deserts her & even if he has a second marriage,his "second" wife is also given the status of a "wife" as in case of giving her maintenance and if they have children,they too have the right to his property.....



a woman is already upset that her home is breaking and when she needs legal support to give her justice,she encounters all the above problems....no woman is willing to break her home.....circumstances drive her to the court/police where she is forced to go when tortures she faces become unbearable...



so i doubt that all women get justice in such a pathetic indian judiciary with these unfriendly laws.....



so y do people say"laws only favor women/women misuse the laws"?when the judiciary's pathetic state makes them further depressed n frustrated.....





plz share your views...

Laws are definitely gender biased and in favor of women but the issues which you have raised have more to do with implementation of those law rather than the laws itself.

then if the laws are poorly implemented,we shud not be saying they favor women

..........becoz they have a harder time taking rounds of courts for years together,besides facing verbal n emotional abuses from their own family members and society who mostly feel that the gal solely is responsible for breaking her home.........

Precisely speaking laws are a bit biased in favor of women. But judiciary specially higher levels have soft corner for women. they are too old people to realise that society has changed a lot and women dont need any favour. they need equal rights and respect only.

both the parties have hard time taking round of courts so equal harassment and by the way why the husband is considered as free ATM machine who has to take care of wife, children etc. Why do wifes ask for maintenance? Both have equal responsibities and there is no parameter to measure desertion. Everybody has his right to decide with whom he/she wants to live and no law can force him/her to live with anyone who has his/her life hell. So why ask for maintenance and go to courts. Live your own life your own way.

India is a male dominated society.  Hence, any thing that is given right to woman would be treated to "pro-woman".  Very a few women are economically empowered and are ascertaining their rights.  That is why we see on internet and on this web-site so much hatred and abuse of women.  Men themselves describing as ATM Machines, treating the better half prostitutes etc.  This shows perverse male mentality. 

Let us take "Matrimonial home", which has been not defined in the Act.  But the courts treat always man's house as matrimonial home.  If a wife asks separate house from in-laws, she will be treated on this web-site as the most cunning and corrupt and disobedient vampire taking away the "Ladla" from his beloved mother and father.  We see on this web site, a lot of tears from husbands, that their wives are insisting that they should be separated from crippled father and old mother, to whom he has to serve just like "Shravan Kumar".  But they never try to see this thing from the angle of the wife, she also sacrificed her crippled father and old mother, lovely brothers, sisters and childhood memories and all of a sudden started a new life in husband's house.  Instead of treating her fairly, they treat her roughly.

Section 24 does treat man and woman equal while seeking compensation.  But, why men always attack this section?  Because, as they are earning , they are not entitled to any thing under the section.  In Section 9, 12 and 13, we do not see any discretion in favour of women.  Even then, it is all being projected in such a fashion, that women are exploiting the laws.

"Very a few women are economically empowered and are ascertaining their rights."


See and feel - visit rural / urban areas then see contemporary India you will see women much better and empowered lot and infact this attitude that women are weaker is giving them bad name. Let us wake up and see around with wide open eyes. Today a women when steps into a court of law she files on an average 4 cases against her husband and family and on an average men file only one case that also if the couple have a child otherwise forget even that 1 custody case. Who benefits the most out of this empowerment and ascertaining rights minus duties ! If one talks of rights then the next word comes is called duties. Give all the right to a women which I per se will not mind but design a society on models of who will perform all the duties then :-)



"Men themselves describing as ATM Machines, treating the better half prostitutes etc."


When a women is misguided by certain sections of professions they then start treating men as ATM machines and men don't describe themselves as ATM Machines before that, worse half starts knocking minimum 4 courts for SOWRY which is their expression of prostitution not a men's branding before that.


Tell me in which country / society after marriage a wife does not join matrimonial home ? In India we sugar quoted and say 'shared house hold' and or undefined 'matrimonial home' but in the lands from where all these women centric laws are being imported they damn care about this fixation of words passionately called again and again in courts as 'matrimonial home' Obviously a women after marriage will not be living in a caravan or on roads. If she has joined matrimonial home that does not mean that a husband and or his family has forced her to leave all her things behind or she was told to be excommunicated from her own family. All over time and again wife's go back home to meet their part of the family and branding it selectively is not right way to plead a picture of a Indian wife.


A husband has not only to listen to his old folks but also to his wife and his child as bread, medicine and shelter provider. Does a wife even listens to his own husband forget the dustbins (FIL / MIL) or kid out of the wedlock !. Project the clear gender picture and don't make only women SOWRY figures. Today a women does not want to be branded that way so why brand her to be compassionate / humane / full of motherhood  a lollipop devi figure etc etc. Is Late Raja Ravi Verma born again here amidst us in the guise of a contemporary Indian Women kya ? 


Maintenance sections


A  die hard Indian men will definitely ask for equity before law be it S. 24 HMA or S. 125 CrPC and even under DVA. It is not that since S. 24 HMA is gender neutral so to speak men have cupid eyes for only this section. The irony is that Indian Courts sees two strong legs with two strong hands of a Indian male to be earning capacity whereas Indian Courts eyes does not go anywhere else in case of incapaciated Indian Women other than ........ Many a women don't even ask maint. and they only ask for divorce so let us not put all eggs in same basket an portray Indian women to be really downtrodden and so on so forth. They have brains too and they damn well use and misuse them for and against a Indian man.


With respect I always wanted to know how to address you like Sh. or Ms. as from your profile surname and then looking at your pic it does not give a clue on correct way to address you which I really want to address you correctly, kindly tweak me.

Rgds.
