Women are an essential part of a family, making up a community and consequently a
country. A woman's life includes roles such as daughter, wife, mother, sister, and others.
She becomes a multi-skilled family backbone once she is married, and the concept of a
wedded house appears to be null and void without her. Despite her omnipresence, she is
frequently considered a simple slave of her husband, lacking her own identity.
Homemakers, in particular, seldom earn cash compensation because their contribution
to the family is not deemed productive labour. With the shift in the concept of marriage
from sacrament to contract, and the progression of divorce laws from challenge to
agreement, it is becoming increasingly vital to recognize the diverse responsibilities
played by women. Marriage should be viewed as an equal economic partnership between
the couples, regardless of their separate financial contributions. The concept of a
community of property regime should be included in Indian family law. This study tries
to concentrate on women's current marriage property rights and future prospects that
can be implemented into our legal system. The author prefers to confine the scope of the
law to the Hindu Marriage Act. In order to achieve those mentioned above, special
attention has been paid to various legal systems around the world and the ideal model for
Indian family law.
