Maintenance and Alimony
My wife is filing revision one after another for increasing maintenance. Please clarify what is the criteria for revision and how frequently my wife can file, as my wife has been awarded maintenance under section 125 crpc and I have been paying it monthly. Next month marks a year since the judgement was passed, and I am wondering if my wife can file a revision to increase the amount again because one year has passed.

He wanted to stay the implementation of the decree so as to escape from depositing the one crore.

However, I also do not want to live with her because I am falling in love with another girl.
