reasons for divorce in india


Marriage as a social institution is an affirmance of

civilized social order where two individuals, capable of

entering into wedlock, have pledged themselves to the

institutional norms and values and promised to each other

a cemented bond to sustain and maintain the marital

obligation. It stands as an embodiment for continuance of

the human race. Despite the pledge and promises, on

certain occasions, individual incompatibilities,

attitudinal differences based upon egocentric perception of situations,

maladjustment phenomenon or propensity for

non-adjustment or refusal for adjustment gets eminently

projected that compels both the spouses to take intolerable

positions abandoning individual responsibility, proclivity of

asserting superiority complex, betrayal of trust which is the

cornerstone of life, and sometimes a pervert sense of

revenge, a dreadful diet, or sheer sense of envy bring the

cracks in the relationship when either both the spouses or

one of the spouses crave for dissolution of marriage –

freedom from the institutional and individual bond. The

case at hand initiated by the husband for dissolution of

marriage was viewed from a different perspective by the

learned Family Court Judge who declined to grant divorce

as the factum of desertion as requisite in law was not

proved but the High Court, considering certain facts and

taking note of subsequent events for which the appellant

was found responsible, granted divorce. The High Court

perceived the acts of the appellant as a reflection of attitude

of revenge in marriage or for vengeance after the reunion

pursuant to the decree for restitution of marriage.
