Assuming you are Hindus,


Incase your sister wants divorce,

then she can file a divorce petition under Section 13 (1) (ia) of the Hindu Marriage Act on the ground of cruelty.

Further your sister can can claim maintenance under Section 125 Crpc or Section 24 of Hindu Marriage Act and permanent alimony under Section 25 of Hindu Marriage Act. 

Therefore permanent alimony can also include the money spent for marriage.
