Can I file for a divorce simply because my marriage is not working out under Hindu law?
Under Hindu Divorce law you cannot easily file for divorce simply because you unilaterally believe that your marriage is not working out. The Courts have recognized that “Irretrievable Breakdown of Marriage” is a situation where either one or both spouses are no longer able or willing to live with each other, thereby ending their marital relationship with no hope for its revival. The law does not specifically recognise this as a reason for divorce, but some courts have accepted it to be a valid ground. However, it would be hard to successfully get a divorce simply on this ground.
