Children are Pawns in Marital Disputes

Cross country custody battles are clear evidence that unfortunately when a husband and wife fall out of love, one of the parents loses it….

a. they abduct the child to a different jurisdiction (most likely one where parental abduction is not a crime, one which is not a signatory to the Hague convention)
b. they start playing a game where they use the custody of the child as a leverage point
c. they conveniently forget about the “best interests of the child”

What is surprising is that the judiciary in India does not see through this ploy, especially when the abductor is the mommy. This is a question i struggle with everyminute everyday and fail to understand as to what causes the breakdown of logic in such cases? Many people say it is gender bias but is it really that simple?

Unfortunately the biggest losers in this are the children, they are the ones who suffer silently and they are the ones who end up being abused the most.
