My brother got married in April,2015.Since I live abroad working fulltime with an infant, soon after his marriage my mother joined me to help me to look after the baby.
While my mother is with me my dad and the newly wed couple stayed in India at our place. My father and the bride’s father were friends and without any questions and enquiries on either sides and with their mutual consent they got married. There were no dowry transactions in the marriage as my father is against that.They were okay for about a month and immediately after which the girl conceived and my brother shared the news with all of us including her parents which annoyed her as she doesn’t want to start the family that soon and was adamant that she will abort the baby but my brother and her parents and we all convinced her to carry on with the pregnancy as we all are there to take care of the new born. After that she said yes to keep the baby and from on her attitude towards us and my brother changed and started torturing my brother with questions and fighting with him for small small things saying that he doesn’t care for her words.This girl always wants to go out till late night and eat outside and also pester my brother to take leave from work very often which my brother can not afford as he works for a private sector. She shared each and everything even the bed room matters with her mother and her mother comes and asks my mom why he is like this and all which is weird.
After 6 months she left to her parents place where she delivered a baby girl and as her mother don’t know how to take care of the new born my mom went back to India and stayed at their place for couple of weeks and came back home ...after 3 months when my parents went to bring her and the baby she refused to come saying that she underwent c section and cannot manage the baby again at 6 months my parents and ny brother asked her to come then she refused saying she will not as she wants my brother to come and stay with her at her parents place for which my brother refused.from then on she is living with her parents and even refusing to show the baby to us.
In this case ,what are my brother’s options and rights towards his daughter as he is in depression with his daughter being away from him. We tried to amicably solve the issue but then no use as she said she need some time to think over if she want to come back or not and never responded.
My father is now 65 and mum is over 55 and they both have health issues and brother is not willing to leave them and go separately. Through our friends we got to know that she wanted money now and not willing to join our family.
