Woman refuses to wear sindoor, court grants man divorce

Jun 30, 2020 15:03 IST

The Gauhati High Court has granted divorce to a man, observing that the refusal to wear shaka and sindoor as per customs by a Hindu married woman amounted to her refusal to accept the marriage. The court also observed that preventing the husband from fulfilling his duties towards his aged mother amounts to cruelty on the part of wife. The man and woman were living separately since 2013 and a family court had denied them divorce.
