Get married, you may learn in detail.

Well, this is law designed to be misused against husband through which husband along with his relatives, including incapacitaed grandmother of 95 years or a nephew of 2 months can be send to jail without enquiry.

498A means you will get fleeced and tortured by India's great legal machinery. It is non-bailable, non-compoundable. Doesn't needs much evidence. It is a shabby law. It is like giving a bomb in the hands of a monkey(read foolish and angry wife). Drafted by some extremely short-sighted looneys,
