Parental intrusion ruining couples' marital life: Delhi high court PDF Print E-mail
Written by PTI   
Monday, 21 February 2011 07:00
NEW DELHI: The interference of parents in the married life of their daughters has become a major cause for playing havoc with the lives of young couples post marriage, the Delhi high court has said. 

Expressing concern over rift between couples due to parents' persistent interference in their daughter's married life, Justice Kailash Gambhir upheld a lower court's decree of divorce to a man on the ground of his in-laws' frequent interference in his marital life. 

Justice Gambhir said parents should draw a line to let their daughters lead happy married lives. 

"All parents guide, teach and discipline their daughters and are concerned about their welfare after marriage but it is imperative for parents to draw a line as the prime concern should be that their daughter is happily settled in a new atmosphere at the husband's place," he said.

Judge jails mother who falsely accused ex of sex abuse and alienated him from kids PDF Print E-mail

We need to see more of this kind of action against children that are held hostage by the custodial parent. It is estimated that 40 percent of all custodial parents alienate children from the other parent. It is a hate crime to deny children the right to be with the other parent.

Nassau County judge jails mother who falsely accused ex of sex abuse and alienated him from kids

In a decision that will surely generate controversy and fuel gender wars and the ongoing debate over parental alienation, Nassau County Supreme Court Judge, Robert Ross, has sentenced a woman to six weekends in jail for alienating her children from their father.

The court went into great detail describing the mother's behavior toward her ex-husband, the defendant in Lauren R. V Ted R. The mother's behavior reached a crescendo, according to Judge Ross, when she made a false report of sexual abuse against the father to Child Protective Services.

Helping alienated parents cope PDF Print E-mail

When a parent loses a child it is universally recognized as a tragedy. Whether by accident or disease, the sympathy, empathy, and tears flow freely. I recall a college friend who was killed by a bus on a cross-country bike trip. His parents were inundated with emotional support. To this day, 23 years later, I still think about him, and what his mother said to me on the day of the funeral.

But there are parents who lose their children and receive no support, no great outpouring of love, no tears. Instead they receive quizzical looks. People whisper behind their backs, wondering "what really happened." These are parents who have lost their children through "parental alienation."

Almost every separating couple goes through some level of parental alienation, which for the most part is nothing more than mom telling junior his father is a jerk, or dad telling Susie her mother is inconsiderate. For most couples going through a breakup this behavior ends and the children's relationship with the other parent is not permanently harmed.

Contesting Rights Over Children
Custody and Guardianship in Matrimonial Disputes
Flavia Agnes 
 
The recent Supreme Court judgement delivered on February 2, 1999 declaring the mother as a natural guardian of her children is hailed as a path breaking one in the realm of Indian family law. (See, Geeta Hariharan vs. Reserve Bank of India, 99(2) SCC, p.228) Many have interpreted it to mean that women will no longer be haunted by the fear of losing custody in matrimonial disputes, as now they are elevated to the status of ?natural guardians?.

In my view, this is rather an exaggerated rating of the judgement. The issue of custody had already been decided in women?s favour in many earlier decisions. In the present case, the apex court did not address this issue. The question before the court was a limited one, whether mothers could also be deemed as natural guardians during the lifetime of their husbands. Section 6(a) of the Hindu Guardianship and Minority Act, 1956 (HGMA) stipulated that the father is the natural guardian of the minor and ?after him? the mother. The court reinterpreted the words ?after him? to read ?in his absence? in order to arrive at a harmonious interpretation of the constitutional mandate of gender equality.

Is equal parenting really better? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Andrea Gordon

Amid the chattering-class angst that’s raging over Amy Chua’s Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, one question stands out: Where was Tiger Dad?

Chua is the Yale University law professor whose book about raising two daughters as a coercive, perfectionist “Chinese Tiger Mother” has sprung to the top of bestseller lists. In it, she describes a home life that sounds like a boot camp for overachievers. Chua roars that Chinese moms instill excellence and self-discipline, while their touchy-feely Western counterparts overindulge kids with praise, choices and fun.

Whatever the reader might make of that argument, something in her story jars like a sour note at Carnegie Hall: Her husband — the girls’ father — plays a minor role.

It’s fair to wonder why mothers are churning out anguished books on parenting (Mommy Wars, Bad Mother, Confessions of a Slacker Mom), while TV commercials are tutoring fathers on the merits of phoning for takeout by “finger cooking”? It’s as if the last half-century has hardly moved the dial on the division of domestic labour.

Domestic violence myths help no one PDF Print E-mail

"The facts are clear," said Attorney General Eric Holder. "Intimate partner homicide is the leading cause of death for African-American women ages 15 to 45."

That's a horrifying statistic, and it would be a shocking reflection of the state of the black family, and American society generally, if it were true. But it isn't true.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Justice Department's own Bureau of Justice Statistics, the leading causes of death for African-American women between the ages 15–45 are cancer, heart disease, unintentional injuries such as car accidents, and HIV disease. Homicide comes in fifth — and includes murders by strangers. In 2006 (the latest year for which full statistics are available), several hundred African-American women died from intimate partner homicide — each one a tragedy and an outrage, but far fewer than the approximately 6,800 women who died of the other leading causes.

After filing a dowry harassment case against the husband, the wife returned to him. Four months ago, she gave it in writing that she wants to withdraw the charges, but the cops are yet to close the case


It could well read like a script of a chick flick, but it's for real and it's the police who are spoiling the plot. Sushma Dubey, a techie, had separated from her husband, Sanjay Ranjan, also a techie. On the advice of her sister, she filed a dowry harassment case (498A) against her husband. Sushma did not know all the details and merely signed the papers prepared by her sister.
