The Madhya Pradesh High Court recently said that if a husband objects to his wife's act of financially supporting her parents, then the same would amount to cruelty. The high court bench of Justice Rohit Arya and Justice Sanjeev S Kalgaonkar further said that making complaints to the wife's employers as to how they had kept her at her job without his (husband's) permission constitutes treating the wife as a "slave", thereby stripping her of her own identity, thus constituting cruelty. The high court observed while dismissing an appeal filed by the husband under section 19 of the Family Courts Act. In his plea, the husband challenged a judgment of the family court whereby the court had allowed his wife's petition under section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 and a decree of divorce had been granted. Dowry Demand Case: Denying Food to Married Woman Over Non-Fulfillment of Dowry Amounts to Physical and Mental Harassment, Says Madhya Pradesh High Court.
