Can you name one country in the whole world, where a age old fahter-in-law or Mother-in-law have to pay maintance to a well educated young daughter-in-law, in case of the father lost his Son or his son had been killed by his Daughter-in-law?
At least one country we know the name of the country is India and thanks to so called Biased Domestic violence LAW to fool the common people.
At last Supreme Court try to Provide some Justice to such ag-old people form the Legal Terrorism , partialy , but the unanswered question :
Will our Shame less LAW maker will wake up and do someting to stop treating the Indian Husband's family as a "Free ATM Machine"?
Still we do not understand , why a well educated, healthy women should get maintance from a Husabnd( irrespective she is right or wrong and she was in marrage realtionship 15days or 15 years), does in this country is there any ban to the women to work hard and earn thier own live hood by thier own?
If Not then why CRPC125 is biased towards husbands family, as per law even a adultrous wife also can claim maintnace, can any one try to find the answer? ( allready the word " lived in adultrity" ahd been changed to " living in adultrity".

Parents-in-law can't be forced to maintain daughter-in-law: SC
Dhananjay Mahapatra | TNN
New Delhi: The latest round of `Saas-Bahu ki ladai' has gone decisively in favour of the motherin-law. The Supreme Court has ruled that a woman, if neglected by her husband, cannot eye her
mother-in-law's property for getting maintenance.
Maintenance of a married woman is her husband's personal obligation and the property in her mother-in-law's name can never be the subject matter of the obligation to maintain a daughter-in-law even after the death of her husband, said a Bench comprising Justices S B Sinha and V S Sirpurkar.
A woman lawyer, who had filed several cases against her parents-in-law in Chincholi, Karnataka, had even taken recourse to litigation to see that their property was auctioned for getting the maintenance she was entitled to from their son.
Disapproving the extra-legal arguments taken by her and deprecating the trial court and the Karnataka High Court overstretching the law as well as their jurisdiction to go by her
pleadings, the Bench said a woman could seek attachment of properties only if her husband had a share in it.
This means, if the parents-inlaw's properties were self-acquired and not inherited, then their daughter-in-law could institute suits seeking attachment of those properties which stood in the name of her husband and not against those owned by his parents.
Referring to the plea of the daughter-in-law, Sonalben, the Bench said she might be entitled to maintenance from her husband and the decree in her suit could only be against his properties.
"The decree, if any, must be executed against her husband and only his properties could be attached for that but not of her mother-in-law," said Justice Sinha, writing the judgment for the
Bench. Referring to the HC order, which was challenged by mother-in-law Vimlaben, the apex court said it suffered from "total non-application of mind" and was "wholly unsustainable".
"The said orders might have been passed only on consideration that Sonalben is a harassed lady, but the fact that Vimlaben is also a much harassed lady was lost sight of (by the HC)," the Bench said.
Directing release of the attached properties to Vimlaben, the court directed Sonalben to give Rs 50,000 to her mother-in-law as cost of litigation.
As a general guideline to the trial courts, the Bench said: "Sympathy or sentiment, as is well known, should not allow the court to have any effect in its decision-making process. Sympathy or
sentiment can be invoked only in favour of a person who is entitled to it. It should never be taken into consideration as a result whereof the other side would suffer civil or evil consequences."
