The young man got proposal from a young woman. The girl's side is very rich and they have lot of fixed deposits in the bank. They married and then the man demanded that all the money should be transferred in his name as he is the husband. The woman and her mother said 'let it be in joint names of husband and wife but the man did not agree and left his wife. Was it fair?
This is more a question of morality than legality. It is obvious that the man married the girl for her money. So if they are not divorced and the money is in the wife's name he may lay claim on it as her legal heir. But then the wife can counter in the court of law that the sole intention of the marriage was the money she had and get divorce from him without losing a single paisa.

The man married the money and not the girl. He should be sued by the girl and her parents for demanding the money. Caution: Even if the man agrees to hold the money in Joint names, the girl should be careful to ensure that the bank should insist upon the signatures of both the persons for withdrawal of the moneys. Either or survivor clause should not be accepted. It is dangerous.to deal with this kind of person.
