An Additional Sessions Court at Jammu recently called on the government to establish marriage counselling centers in all districts of Jammu and Kashmir to provide marriage and relationship counselling to couples and their families in view of the rising crimes related to dowry demands.
The counseling centers proposed should be entrusted with the responsibility of pre-marital and post-marital parleys between the families of the couple to ensure a harmonious and peaceful settlement of matrimonial misunderstandings, the court said.
The court mooted the proposal while hearing an anticipatory bail plea moved by a woman accused of dowry harassment following the suicide of her daughter-in-law.
