Navigating Marital Discord: A Divorce Judgment Analysis

Divorce Judgment

Understanding the Case

Two appeals, MAT.APP.(F.C.) 246/2023 and MAT.APP.(F.C.) 247/2023, were brought to the High Court of Delhi by Ruma Chakraborty against a Family Court’s decision denying her divorce petition under Section 13(1)(ia) and (ib) of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, and granting her husband’s petition for restitution of conjugal rights under Section 9 of the Act.

Allegations and Counterarguments

Ruma Chakraborty accused her husband, Pranab Kumar Chakraborty, of cruelty and desertion, citing instances of neglect, financial exploitation, and emotional distress during their marriage. Pranab denied the allegations, claiming marital discord arose due to Ruma’s inability to adjust to their living arrangements and familial expectations.

Court’s Analysis and Verdict

After examining testimonies and evidence, the court found merit in Ruma’s claims of cruelty and desertion. It emphasized the husband’s failure to provide financial and emotional support, leading Ruma to seek refuge with her parents. Consequently, the court granted Ruma’s appeal for divorce, highlighting the husband’s neglect and abandonment as grounds for dissolution of marriage under Sections 13(1)(ia) and (ib) of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955.
