Does the Hindu Divorce Law have absolutely no respite for the helpless, battered husband of a faithless wife?
I have consulted lawyers and found that the Hindu Divorce Law (very unlike the one for Muslims) has absolutely NO respite for the helpless and tortured husband of an adulterous/lawless wife in love with another who is most happy with the relationship only and not willing to marry her. In case the miserable husband is fortunate enough to be divorced by the wife herself, how long can the procedure take to come across?
Who was the foolish lawyer who told you that if a Hindu wife indulge in adultery her husband has no respite from her this act? The Hindu Marriage Act,1955 clearly provides:- Any marriage solemnized, whether before or after the commencement of the Act, may, on a petition presented by either the husband or the wife, be dissolved by a decree of divorce on the ground that the other party-
(i) has, after the solemnization of the marriage had voluntary sexual intercourse with any person other than his or her spouse;
If a Hindu wife has sexual relationship with another person then her husband & the husband has sufficient evidence to prove this sexual relationship/intercourse then the husband can get decree of divorce. The lawyer who told you that its only the wife who can give divorce not husband to the wrongdoer wife is either not a lawyer & has bogus law degrees. Always pay & consult right professional not the bogus one.
