If you are a Indian parent of a son or a male who wants to get married and live happily support this petition.

Our Institution of marriage and family as a whole is under threat

Our politicians are creating a one sided law that will reduce indian marriages to prostitution and one sided blackmail.
Both opposition BJP and  ruling Congress are hand in glove on this. In fact BJP is demanding that men should lose even more on this


1) New Mariiage Amenedment  Bill law proposes that Only Husband's entire  property regardless of whether it was inherited or acquired pre-marriage be treated as matrimonial asset and half of it must be given to wife on divorce.
The law is unfair
         a ) since today women also earn .
         b) Remember today 50% of indian marriages in Cities are ending in divorce , most of these within less than one year and women are initiators on most of these. It is grossly unfair to punish men for divorce they did not want and when marriage is so extremely short
      c) This opens doors for blackmail - Even today in India in almost every divorce case women file false criminal charges to extort money from in-laws , this will lead to rise in such instances.

2) Law does not bring into ambit property or valuables owned by women, they are in fact protected under stridhan, hence even if a woman is rich today , she will still take away half the property of man who may have lesser means than her

3) Law is particularly harsh on Senior Citizens, parents of the boy as even property that may be inherited in future is brought in ambit. THink bulk of people are able to buy one house at best in lifetime, what if their daughter in-laws get share in it , where will retired Senior citizens go ?

4) Already if you look at any matrimonial site or around you you will find divorce in every second house in the cities and bulk of it break within six months of a marriage . How legitimate is it to gift away half of man's property , when women are not ready to adjust even a bit for marriage today

5) Today bulk of divorces & separation are result of being initiated on behalf of women under insinuation from parents and relatives . People's resolve to carry marriages is low.

6) This will incentivise divorce  and marriage will become a get rich quick scheme for women by getting divorce. Hence Divorces will increase

7) Religious conversions will rise as people may have to change religion to preserve their property

8) Live-In relationships will rise like in western countries as men will be scared to get into marriage .


1) Make law gender neutral , bring all property both women and men in ambit of law

2) Incentivise marriage and prevent misuse. Do not allow property acquired to be shared unless the couple has lived together for 5 years.

3) Inherited property to be shared in case there are kids with a rider that father gets joint or equal custody of kids

4) Revoke grant of inherited property to interested party  , if person receiving the grant   remarries


Support this petition, say no to sharing of any pre-marriage property.
Let our illiterate policians know we will not allow our marriages to be trifled with

Think tommorow you get married and your wife throws your parents out of their own house and brings her lover to live in this
Think tommorow your wife will decamp with your ancestors entire wealth legally . Read below

      EW DELHI: In a major step towards making marriage laws more women-friendly, Rajya Sabha on Monday passed the bill to amend the Hindu Marriage Act (1955) and the Special Marriage Act (1954) that provides for "irretrievable breakdown on marriage" as a ground for divorce as well as grants women the right to a share in the property of their husbands.

      The Marriage Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2010, will of course also have to be passed by Lok Sabha before it can become law. Most Rajya Sabha MPs cut across party lines to welcome the "progressive" bill, though some held it should have been made more "gender-neutral", while a few others expressed reservations about its probable misuse against men.

      Replying to the debate, law minister Kapil Sibal said there was an urgent need to "protect women rights more" because the Indian society was still quite patriarchal. "So let's be clear. This

      KANPUR: A youth jumped from the fifth floor of the multi-storey building of Kanpur Nagar on Saturday. He was immediately rushed to the UHM Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead. He was later identified as Anuj Kumar Gupta.

      A suicide note was recovered from the body, wherein Anuj had accused his wife and in-laws of harassment. In the suicide note, Anuj, who had a grocery shop at Canal Road, said that on June 16, his wife had shifted to her parents' house along with all valuables and cash worth Rs 1 lakh.

      At that time, he was in his shop. After coming to know of the incident, he contacted his in-laws but was abused and threatened of dire consequences. The in-laws demanded that he provide a space in his shop for his brother-in-law to run a business.

      Anuj further wrote that he had submitted a complaint with the police and a copy of it to the SSP. However, the police

      ew Delhi: After the Union Cabinet on Wednesday cleared a legislation that will entitle a wife, on divorce, to have a share in her husband's inherited or inheritable property, it has sparked off a debate as to whether the government is becoming too overzealous in its quest for political correctness.
      A sizeable section of people, comprising both men and women, finds the government's latest decision as "violating the basic principles of right to equality" as an individual mentioned on Twitter.

      NEW DELHI: A wife will have a share in her husband's inherited or inheritable marital property on divorce, though the exact quantum of the compensation has been left to the discretion of the judge, according to a legislation that was cleared by the Union Cabinet on Wednesday.

      The Cabinet also cleared the proposal that in cases where divorce has been sought on mutual consent of both parties the judiciary has been given the discretion to grant divorce to one party after a period of three years, even if the man and the wife are no longer on the same page. These were part of the recommendations of the GoM on Marriage Laws Amendment Bill which will now be amended suitably before being brought to Parliament during the monsoon session, beginning August 5.

      It is in violation to our Fundamental Rights and in todays senario if a women wants to be treated equally then this old concept of maintenance has to change.

      Second of all this bill will be used as a weapon by masses. simple example is as the change in criminal law came their was a steep rise in false cases against males.

      Our judiciary is capable enough to pass Correct judgments/ Orders based on the facts, but this would be a blow to the rights and equality that's enshrined in our constitution.

      This is a ghastly mistake, and a classic over-correction done by the lawmakers. This will lead to social injustices against men (most commonly middle class men), while not benefiting the women who actually deserve it by even one bit!

      This is a very unthoughtful and regressive step!
