Babu Anna

"It is said that 'ignorance is bliss'. But not for a husband. Why I am saying this is because, men are so ignorant about 498A (even today) that theycome to know about their existence only after the wife has fired the legal ammoand police comes at his doorstep. There are cases in which wife/her relatives do not threaten to use 498A, rather they file it straightway. There is no opportunity for the husband to take any preventive action. Only plus point is he has peace of mind till 498A is fired."

Well Said Babu,

But the peace of mind is to the one who is not aware at all of 498a. But there are a chunck of families of husbands who live under the constant threat of unfired 498a and are blackmailed or victimised to dance to the tune of the so called abla.

Their plight is no less.

Agreed.
But there is a catch in this also.
Even if the husband chooses a life of servitude towards his wife, there is no guarantee that 498a/dv will not be fired even after years/decades of marriage. This is a lifelong risk. It's difficult to say which life is better. Anyway the husband doesn't have a choice. It's for the wife to make. A bit like MATRIX (husband - human,
wife-agent)
:-)
