Dear Querist
section 125 of Cr.P.C is for maintenance and being a legal wedded wife if she is unable to maintain herself and have sufficient reason to live separately then you are bound to pay the maintenance amount as per your income and status.

1. She is within her rights to claim maintenance and file a petition u/s125 of Cr.P.C. if she is unemployed and/or is unable to maintain herself,

2. You can contest her said petition if your wife is enmployed and capable of maintaining herself,

3. Recently the Apex Court has opined that highly qualified wife is capable of earning and maintaing her self for which she is not entitled to any maintenance from her husband.
