A. Dear Client,
It is not compulsory to stay with your in-laws. You are free to stay with your husband separately but your husband has to maintain them if they are not able to maintain themselves and that is compulsory according to law.
Thanks.

A. There is nothing written in the law to stay with your in - laws as an obligation but however after marriage it becomes more of a duty. As the house you live in shifts from your paternal home to your husbands house and that eventually becomes your house in which you stay after marriage.

A few details are missing in your question. If known the advice will be proper. Please do contact me through vidhikarya with detailed information about your matter so that I can help you with the same.

Thanks

A. Dear Sir/Madam,
If the wife alleges torture then there is no need to stay in the house of parents-in-law otherwise the following rule applies
Indian Court grants divorce to man whose wife refused to live with in-laws
India’s supreme court has granted a divorce to a man on the grounds of “cruelty” after his wife refused to share a home with her in-laws, effectively ruling that a married woman must live with her husband’s family.
Justice Anil R Dave, one of the the most senior judges in India, said the wife’s desire to leave her in-laws’ home was inspired by “western thought” and violated traditional values of Indian Hindus.
“In normal circumstances, a wife is expected to be with the family of the husband after the marriage,” stated the supreme court ruling, which also dismissed the wife’s attempt to kill herself as a plot to “torture” her husband and his relatives.
There is no legal obligation for men to live with their parents, so the ruling still allows couples to live independently if men choose to set up a separate home. But the case had been seen as a test, pitting the rights of women against traditional Hindu values.
Activists said the ruling left millions of women who were in unhappy marriages or with abusive husbands even more vulnerable.
“If you look at the language the court has used, it’s very regressive,” said Tenzing Chusang, from the Women’s Rights Initiative, a lawyers’ collective. “If you make the grounds of divorce very lenient for men, it makes the woman very vulnerable.”
Divorce in India carries a huge stigma: there are few financial provisions for divorced women, and little legal support.
Chusang said: “In India there’s no such thing as shared matrimonial property or equal division of assets. All she gets if the husband divorces her, and that too after years of litigation, is a minimal maintenance payment. What can she do? She has to stay.”
The judge said the wife’s claims that her husband was having an affair were fabricated, and that her suicide attempt was a devious attempt to manipulate her husband’s family.
