$300 too less for 'studying' wife to sustain herself in US: Bombay HC tells husband

Money mind

Hearing the case, the family court had earlier ordered the husband to pay a monthly maintenance of Rs 15,000 (USD 300) to her.

Thereafter, the wife went to US for higher studies and later urged the court to increase the maintenance as she could not sustain with the meagre amount of USD 300.

The husband argued that in US the concept among working couples was that of "earning and learning."

He prayed that his wife was a qualified dentist and could practice or take up a job while studying, instead of asking for a higher amount as maintenance.

However, the High Court disagreed with the husband's argument saying that the wife had gone to the US on a student visa and therefore could not practice in that country.
