Artusa Law Firm Jersey City Divorce
The Supreme Court of India and How it Affects NJ Indian Clients
The Supreme Court on Thursday made a revolutionary decision that a husband can divorce his wife if she forces him to separate from his parents and family members.
“The persistent effort of the wife to constrain the husband to be separated from the family would be torturous for the husband. No husband would tolerate this and no son would like to be separated from his family members, who are dependent on his income,” the bench said.
Responding to the plea of a man, the apex court bench also ruled that making false accusation against the husband of extra-marital affair and threatening him to commit suicide will also be considered valid reasons for divorce. It also supported the husband saying the mere idea of facing legal battle would put a husband under relentless stress.
“A wife is expected to be with the family of the husband after the marriage. She becomes integral part of the family of the husband and without any justifiable reason, she should not insist to get separated from the family. In most of the cases, the husband is being dragged to court with false accusations just for the sake of monetary compensation,” the bench held.
