Hi, Let her file for maintenance and you should defend it proving your financial ability. Usually court orders, 1/3 of your income, and whatever the condition it is by law that husband has to maintain wife as per his standards, if she is not earning. If you do not wish for divorce, file an RCR asking the court to give an order to reinstate your marriage and conjugal rights.. This will also help you to defend the maintenance and her divorce demand. In case after RCR order she refuse to join you after an year you can file for divorce legally. Regarding your financial and social status there is a difference as you are a pastor, your wife was well aware before the marriage that she would have to make some adjustments and sacrifice as your religious life restricts you to earn money other than your pastorship . so this can be a good defense in the court.
