My dear ^ above two commentators,
Your comment's are immature.....
498A is not a Monster that will kill you,make you bankrupt,make you criminal or make you suffer like anything.
A woman who files 498a is a looser indeed if her husband is not a chicken hearten man.
But,by reading your comment it feels that you have suffered a lot with this 498a...
My dear bro..it's only a gimmick which plays it's role till you have not got bail.
Once you have got bail.You are the master of your own wife.
1. If You are not going to take her nor going to give huge money for settlement. Due to this she is bound to run around court to prove her false allegations. In this procedure many wife's not only looses their husbands but also their other supports from her family,society and friends. They are only treated as used products in the market and on top of that their life can't be resumed in a decent way if any man knows about her and she is planning for marrying him. She can get money but that money will be similar to prostitution fee and nothing more. The reason is that she will not get a true husband who could love her after knowing that she had earlier filed false 498a on her ex husband.
2.If you have guts just for initial level so that you could hold the nerves of entire family then the hell goes to her to just ask the cost of mess as above stated by me..
Remember one thing fortune also favors the brave and not the dumbos.....!!
"If you are right and you haven't done anything wrong then mark a word you will get the precious sleep but your wife will not.."
Again read my following words:
Don't Loose hope you are not the one who is suffering from bad law,there are millions of husbands and families who had suffered due to this draconian law.
Once you got AB or Bail you have won your Half battle,remaining battle is only by default because our slow Indian judiciary will not make her win nor make you defeat.
It's only an Indian court drama which will last for 2-3 years and lastly goes for settlement outside the court.
Hence, these settlements are only a bargaining which is just like purchasing a bag full of vegetables from near by market after so many bargains.The Husband who holds his nerves till the last moment and never bow down against such exorbitant price is the winner indeed against these false cases.
So, Take the Bail and Fight the cases with a cheerful intention in your heart that you are on the way of freedom which will be soon conquered by you...
