The bizarre world of failed marriages!

To understand the changing dynamics of Indian marriages, we got in touch Delhi’s eminent divorce and family lawyer, Prachi Singh and according to her, it’s shocking how couples have started picking up on trivial reasons to end their marriages, because ending a marriage has become easier than living through one. “I have individuals walking into my chamber, telling me, please make a ground for my divorce because somewhere deep inside they know that there is no reason to end the marriage,” explains Prachi.

Couples realise they’re non-compatible on honeymoon.

Prachi Singh, an advocate from Defence Colony, tells us, “I get around 3-4 cases in a week where the couples want a divorce immediately after the honeymoon. When I read this news of the man walking away, I wasn’t that surprised, as I get such queries from Delhi almost everyday. Couples come to me just 10 days after marriage, saying they want to get separated. The reason, they say, is that they were not compatible during the honeymoon. I tell them that under Section 14 of the Hindu Marriage Act of 1955, no petition for divorce can be filed within one year of the marriage unless it is of extreme hardship. But the couples are not ready to listen and become impatient. Most of them are from the IT and MNC sectors.” Vidhi Mathur, another city-based lawyer, says, “I had this case once where the husband liked talking about sports and the wife liked talking about cooking, and on their honeymoon, differences started cropping up. By the time they returned home, it had turned into an ego issue and they came to me saying they wanted to separate.”

Facebook, WhatsApp spell doom for relationships.

According to divorce and family attorney, Prachi Singh, the fact that Facebook has minute by minute updates of everything we do, is landing these couples in soup. “Most of the divorce cases these days have Facebook and WhatsApp as the main trigger. What’s more, since these chats and screenshots can be submitted in the court f law, as secondary evidence by including them in the annexure, people should be really cautious of their social media activities.”
