Rights of Women after Marriage in Islam

I just recently found about this fact and thought I'd share here:

A woman has the right to be maintained at the socio-economic status that she was accustomed to before she was married, unless she relenquishes that right herself. So if a woman is wealthy before and marries a wealthy man who can not maintain her at the status she was accustomed to before, she has the right on the grounds of shariah for divorce.

There is an understanding that women need help inside the house for domestic affairs, managing the children, etc. With regards to servicing the house, the scholars have said that she is not obliged to work within the house but is preferred if she is not working. In fact, it is not considered to be "disobedient" to be obliged to serve the guests of the man. These are the facts mentioned in the Shairiah in books of fiqh which were written centuries ago. Women get burnt out, tired and thus marriage gets deteriorated because of these things. But it works both ways, and the Prophet salalaualahywasalam warned us of the dangers of women as well refered to as Kufraan-al-Asheera that women can not appreciate what the man does. It works both ways, it is a two-way street, there is a type of women that you good to her all her life and then once you do something wrong, she will say "I never knew any good from you." In other words, that she forgets all what you have done your whole life. Thus caution must be from both sides of the relationship.
