Compensation to the wife for tidying up the house
BEIJING: A divorce court in China has handed down a landmark ruling. The husband filed for divorce from his wife. The husband recently ordered her to pay $ 7,700 (Rs. 5.57 lakhs) in compensation for doing housework. Divorce is a natural part of marriage. We have also seen money coming from husband to wife in property and other matters. But .. for the first time, the court ordered the wife to pay for taking care of their child, the adults in the house and the housework.
Recently the Chinese government enacted a new law. Under this Act the wife has the right to seek compensation from the husband at the time of divorce. The court in view of this law has made such a judgment. According to the court, the husband had approached the court seeking a divorce from his wife. At the same time, the wife told the court that she had been caring for her son on one side and doing all the housework on the other for five years. The court also upheld the woman’s claim and ordered her to pay compensation under the new law. However, many people are defending the verdict given by the court. With this verdict the court is applauded for taking a step in a whole new direction. But the compensation is said to be minimal for the work done by the woman.
