Allegations and Counterarguments

The appellant, S.C. Nuna, alleged cruelty by his wife, citing instances of disrespect, financial exploitation, and accusations of infidelity. On the other hand, Anita Nuna, the respondent, argued that the discord arose due to her husband’s alleged extramarital affair with a colleague, Ms. B.S.

Court’s Analysis and Verdict

After examining testimonies and evidence, the court found substantial proof of the husband’s involvement with Ms. B.S. despite being married to Anita Nuna. Despite the acquittal of the husband in a previous criminal case, the court emphasized that his actions constituted cruelty towards his wife.
