Joint account income needs complete transparency and honesty between the two partners.

He is squeezing her financially, physically, emotionally to live king's life and get the best of the world for his own kids. After two and half years of full salary deposition, his greed continued. One day, frustrated Meera stopped payments. He started threatening her to deposit her income to joint account to pay mortgage and bills. eventually, joint account hits the overdraft facility and bank starts calling home 3 times a day. Utility bills do not get paid. Water, phone got disconnected. Con artist lives in the same house, changed the password of internet to stop Meera's usage but claims the bills from Meera. She realized her exploitation is beyond her imagination which has ruined her excellent credit score due to big fat liar. Bigamous marriage did not save a single penny for her future during a marriage but started draining her premarital assets to pay lawyers bills in USA and India.
Veena (Wife #2) Balaji's greed and Veena's need. Dreams of coming to USA as a dependent wife, having late husband's insurance money to play for her dreams, elderly unemployed lady at widowed home who is not in good terms with her family and can be easily molded to suck her late husband's insurance money, not well educated to understands con artist's Karishma - what a fantastic opportunity of marriage for Balaji to abuse Veena. He married Veena, took dowry, did not spend a penny in luxurious wedding and abandoned her after marriage. She has ruined her life but Dr Balaji was blaming Veena as a "Pagal" woman. Her son deprived due to lack of money and education but Dr. Balaji enjoyed luxurious marriage at zero cost and gained her late husband's insurance, flew to USA with his status as "single" again to marry another woman.

Leena issued arrest warrant as he did not follow court orders to pay child support.
Dr. Balaji demonized Leena a lot in community and manipulated his kids to get full custody. Dad who never paid child support for his kids fought for getting child support from Leena and garnished Leena's income from employer. He was receiving regular check from her employer each month which Balaji was depositing in his personal account and kids expenses were charged to joint account of Meera-Balaji.
