Prenups may soon be a Law in India. In a bid to ensure a happy ending for the fighting couples, the government is planning to introduce the concept of pre-nuptial agreement. It is a common practice in the West, especially among celebrities. It is a pact which couples sign before marrying each other. The pact documents details like who does what and more importantly, who gets what if the marriage didn't worked out and breaks down. The only hindrance is that Indian Law doesn't recognise these pacts and cites them useless. But now, the Ministry of Women and Child Development led by Maneka Gandhi plans to change this.

good initiative. it is the need of hour. Better we start now than get very late. In any case, the indian judicial system will try to abondon/delete/dilute/delay these. So all elite class should atleast come forward and support this. My sisters husband took away/transferred 75.0 lacs from her account in six years of marriage and now divorced . We have the bank details but cant do anything.

irritable broken marriages

In august 2013, In Rajya Sabha a bill of Hindu Marriage amendment Bill was passed for giving giving relief women such cases which are pending in Courts for long time even for decades . Such marriages are in thousands and both of the couples are suffering and cannot have their own life to lead. Women are greatly benefited in financial terms. But Bill could not be passed in Lok Sabha due to less time left as there were disruptions due to agitations everyday for Telangana Issue. If this bill is passed in the present Lok Sabha, there would be great relief to all those couples who are facing the difficulties in the Court Rooms for long pending more 20 - 25 years. Madam Maneka Gandhi sir, would kindly take up this bill could be passed in present Lok Sabha in coming Winter Session. T W
