On Saturday, a Delhi court gave an important verdict on the appeal challenging the order of giving interim alimony to the estranged wife. The court rejected the appeal of a man, saying that it is the social and legal obligation of the husband to pay alimony to the wife brought in by lawful marriage. Also, he cannot run away from his responsibilities. However, the court said that since the wife is educated, she should also find a job for herself and should not let her talent be ruined by sitting empty in the house.

Principal District and Sessions Judge Swarn Kant Sharma said that the order of the magistrate court is correct that the husband should provide Rs. 20,000 per month as interim maintenance allowance to his wife. The court said in an order passed on March 25, “As per the established law, the appellant (husband) cannot run away from his responsibility to pay alimony to the wife brought by lawful marriage. It is his social and legal obligation to the wife. “

‘Wife left from in-law for no reason’

During the hearing, the man’s lawyer claimed that his wife left his mother-in-law for no reason and refused to return. The lawyer said that the man has been unemployed since 2019 as he left his job to study.

Hence, the lower court passed the interim order without considering its current status and responsibilities. Wife’s advocate Amit Kumar argued that she was allegedly being tortured at her in-laws’ house, due to which she lodged a complaint against him under the Domestic Violence Act and started living with her brother.
