Dowry is a custom that is followed by people who are in a relationship for marriage. In India, it is customary to give gifts like jewelry and cash to the groom’s family.
Dowry is usually paid in installments, but in some cases, the bride’s family pays the entire amount in cash and sometimes, even more than the amount that is given as dowry. There are times when dowry is completely rejected by the groom’s family, especially if they have not paid any dowry.
Marriages are supposed to be a reflection of what you can give each other. I think that is one reason why marriages don’t work out because there is no real understanding of how each of you needs to be in a marriage.
A husband needs to understand his wife’s needs, but a wife doesn’t always understand her husband’s needs. Each person in the relationship should be understanding of the other person’s needs.
Which Law Is Violated In The Case Of Dowry Death
Dowry is still prevalent in parts of India, Pakistan, and some other countries. Dowry deaths are a rising phenomenon in India. Dowry death is the most common form of family violence in India.
It is the act of a woman or girl killed by a man, usually her husband, brother, or son, who claims that the deceased wife or daughter did not die of natural causes, but had died of ill-treatment, infidelity, or dowry demands.
Section 302 of the IPC is the provision that gives legal status to dowry-related deaths.
Section 304-B provides protection to women against domestic violence and harassment, irrespective of whether it takes place during the marriage or after the dissolution of marriage. Section 304-B also grants compensation to women suffering from domestic violence and harassment.
In conclusion, The husband’s family members are equally responsible. No one gets off the hook by claiming that “the woman made the situation worse”.
The woman did nothing to deserve the treatment she received. The husband and his family members are responsible for his actions. It was their choice to accept the man’s behavior.
As a friend, a spouse, or a child, we all know that abuse of any kind is wrong, and we have a moral obligation to try and end it. It’s not okay to let anyone be treated that way.
When someone is being abused, it’s not okay to stand idly by and watch. And if you see or hear about abuse, it’s not okay to ignore it. You have a responsibility to speak out and end the abuse.
