Vijay:'Rights are for those who need to exercise such rights. The need arises when one is at the receiving end and is wronged. There have always been laws, loopholes and exploiters of such loopholes. They are surely in a minority as compared to those who are protected by the law.

Even in this case, if a woman does not wish to exercise her rights, law shall not interfere with her choice. Even if she does exercise this option, the presumption here is rebuttable. '

Unfortunately this is what very rarely happens in real life though this is the idealistic view to take...what happens is just the opposite...cunning/shrewd people get away with using law for their own ulterior motives by twisting the laws & the system....here is the story of 3 divorces & alimonies...

At the time I was going through my divorce..one of students who also became a dear friend too was going through hers( she was seeking divorce on grounds of cruelty)...& she chose to push for alimony while i decided i'd forgo mine cos I don't believe in demanding money when the relationship fails ( like ive said 1000 times before too)...now her case dragged on for years...& then the Judge awarded her a hansome alimony of Rs 1200 a month...by this time having moved on & focussing my energies on my studies & career I was making atleast 20 times more than her (not a very large sum by any means but the difference is too drastic)...

& during the same time a friend was seeking a divorce from his wife on grounds of physical & mental cruelty...even as his case was pending the Judge ordered him to pay 60% of his salary as interim maintenance to her even when his son stays with him ..the wife got the money & no responsibilities.

So the gal who was tortured din't get any significant alimony...the woman who tortured got a handsome alimony.

Now coming to the main topic if live in by their very definitions are for ppl who pooh pooh marriage laws but that doesn't stop a woman from running to law whn she feels wronged...

Ergo I hate alimonies.
