Pages: 2708-2712
Abstract
Relationships between men and women that are not based on a genuine marriage are considered "meretricious,""illegitimate," and other derogatory terms in Indian culture. Bigamy is a crime punished under Section 494 of the Indian Penal Code, save in the case of Mohammedans and for all other religions. When a conflict emerges between the parties to a marriage and the legal system, it is understood that marriage is a "social institution" and comes with a bundle of rights, duties, and legal remedies. Rights of 'wife' under various laws, such as the right to residence, right to maintenance, rights against cruelty and harassment, protection against domestic violence, and a legal duty is cast upon the husband to provide the basic necessities of food and shelter to maintain the family, protect women in patriarchal societies. Analysis was conducted utilizing theory-driven directed content analysis and theoretical frameworks that reflect family and gender-based views on violence.
