ALIMONY = DOWRY


In a country where equality is supposed to be the norm on paper at least, the concept of alimony in case of divorce is the same as the concept of dowry during marriage. The latter is separation money given by the father towards the daughter and the former by the husband towards the wife. If we are fighting dowry, alimony should also be opposed.

The greatest crime against women is to keep them in servitude and victimize their psyche with the concept of alimony and maintenance. Why is the self respect/dignity of women being destroyed with the concept of Alimony?
