Marriage is a vital part of our culture. But, in some cases, this relationship doesn’t last long, and they end up separating. In India, you can file for divorce based on specific acts. As per the Hindu Marriage Act of 1955, the spouse can file for divorce on the following grounds-
- Leprosy or any contagious venereal disease
- Presumption of death
Besides, as per Muslim laws, divorce can be filed mutually by husband or wife. The only ground for divorce is when coexistence is impossible. And ‘triple talaq’ has already been declared unlawful by the Supreme Court.
Moreover, there are some other grounds on which a woman can seek a divorce, like-
- Didn’t spot her husband for four years

- Husband stopping his wife from getting her legal rights
So, there can be several other grounds for filing for divorce. Hence, it is better to seek expert advice to understand your rights and attain what you deserve legally.
