Pune, 12th May 2022: A case has come to light where a wife is a government servant while her husband is working in the private sector. Both have been working in different districts since before marriage.

After the marriage, the wife got transferred to the office which was located in her husband’s district. However, due to the closure of the office where the wife was working, she was relocated to the previous district and the two were not able to spend time together as the wife was not able to visit her husband.

The husband on the other hand tried to make a move so that his wife could come back to him. To implement the idea, the husband straightaway went to the family court. The court explained that if the wife is forced to come to the husband, she will have to give up on her job and her basic rights will be violated under Article 19 of the Constitution. As a result, the court rejected the husband’s application.

Seema and Rakesh (name changed) got married in 2015. As they both were working in different districts, they were not able to live together. But still, Seema tried to convince Rakesh to shift to a location from which both can go to their respective workplaces. But Rakesh denied the offer.

In the end, Seema transferred to Rakesh’s district. For a while, their married life was going on smoothly. But due to the sudden closure of the office, Seema was transferred back to the previous district. This created distance between the two. Due to her job, she could not meet Rakesh. She suggested to Rakesh that they should stay somewhere in the middle. However, Rakesh did not accept the offer and applied to the family court so that Seema can come to Rakesh again. But the court rejected Rakesh’s application.

“The wife is highly educated. She has got a job on her skills. She has every right to stand on her own two feet and live with self-reliance and self-respect. She deserves the same status and opportunity as a man. According to Article 19 of the Constitution, every citizen has been given the fundamental right to reside anywhere or to do any business. Women also contribute to the Indian economy through employment. Working women have to balance family and work,” explaining this court denied the application moved by the husband.
