Marriage Troubles: Court Rejects Divorce Plea under Hindu Marriage Act

In a recent judgment, the Delhi High Court dismissed a divorce appeal filed under Section 19 of the Family Court Act, 1984. The appellant, Sanjeev Kumar, sought divorce from his wife, Sapna, under the provisions of section 13(1)(ia) and 1(iii) of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955. The judgment, reserved on October 11, 2023, and pronounced on March 07, 2024, highlights the complexities surrounding the couple’s troubled relationship.

Background of the Case

The marriage between Sanjeev Kumar and Sapna took place on April 25, 2012, following Hindu rites and ceremonies. The couple had a child together. Kumar alleged that Sapna’s behavior towards him and his family turned indifferent and cruel soon after their marriage. He contended that Sapna complained of health issues, refused to adjust in their matrimonial home, and even threatened suicide.

Court’s Observations and Decision

The court carefully examined the evidence presented by both parties. It noted that the troubles in the early days of marriage were likely due to minor adjustments and failed to find specific incidents constituting cruelty. The court observed that accusing Sapna of mental illness and taking her for treatment demonstrated ill intentions by Kumar. Medical records indicated that Sapna was physically and mentally fit, and the court rejected claims of mental disorder.
