If one finds spouse cheating and finds some pornography material on net is that evidence considered legal n sufficient evidence for divorce?

Default Re: Divorce Laws In India (Grounds for Divorce)

The secular mind-set of the Indian judicial system has initiated proclamation of various personal laws based on different religious faiths. Hindus, Christians and Muslims are governed under separate marriage acts and grounds for divorce in India.
Let us have a look at the various grounds for divorce in India.
The following are the grounds for divorce in India mentioned under the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955.
Adultery – The act of indulging in any kind of sexual relationship including intercourse outside marriage is termed as adultery. Adultery is counted as a criminal offence and substantial proofs are required to establish it. An amendment to the law in 1976 states that one single act of adultery is enough for the petitioner to get a divorce.

Unhappy Re: Divorce Laws In India (Grounds for Divorce)

My brother married one month ago in India. The girls side kept insisting he should marry in 2011 as some superstitious belief 2012 is a leap year. Her mother used to encourage her girl to have physical relations with the boy before marriage. The boy was all emotionally involved. The girl used to always say my parents are bad, we are poor so we don't get to enjoy life. She used to keep fooling around getting the boy to spend on expensive things and fighting with him saying he does not care for her if he would sometimes say no. The girl came one month before the marriage uninvited saying her parents did not agree. She took free clothes, asked for foreign items, ate free in our house and slept all day and in hush hush tones was talking to her mother. On the marriage day, the girls mother was behaving funny. Everyone's face was solemn at the wedding from the girls side including the girl. Within minutes of the wedding she started showing her true colors and fighting in front of guests and basically acting cheap. She married for money and property. The girl is keeps visiting her parents and writing dirty emails saying we are torturing her and all sorts of false allegations with just no limits. All sorts of false allegations and now claims she has no place to go and wants all the property and money. Can anybody advice what recourse we have with a girl who has no qualms lying, sleeping with men to involve them emotionally and cheating them of their hard earned money. To add to it she has left her job and has made no effort to find one either.

Lightbulb Re: Divorce Laws In India (Grounds for Divorce)

I am not gonna tell not to take divorce, because if you are here then the marriage is already broken down emotionally and physically, if not officially.

I went to India and got married to a girl who was much much richer than me and i didn't take any dowry. Infact her mom made us give them a lot of expensive jewellery, while they didn't even offer a pair of clothes for me. It's not her wealth that i married her for, it was because she seemed well educated and from 'good' family while their reason for getting into this relation was because our horoscopes matched pretty good and i was an NRI !
By then i have been working for many years in USA and i went to India and got married. After i came back to US i realized i and my wife couldn't go together well. We had many fights and most of the times i would leave the house to be alone for an hr or two so that the neighbors don't call the cops hearing our fights. While i did my best not to make scene at home or out, my wife used every opportunity to raise hell. If i wasn't calm, the cops would have visited us everyday.
While we both wanted an immediate divorce, the stigma that runs about divorce in Indian culture kept us silent. My wife would scream everyday that she would leave me after getting a job herself, but she wouldn't look for a job and wouldn't consent for divorce (even though she would say she will divorce me). While she was obviously unhappy with me, she had the security of living under my roof and eating on my table. But she never cooked any single meal in 3 years for me, never cleaned the house, all she did was spend time on orkut/facebook chatting with her boyfriends from college in India or take my money and shop all weekends.
Now, i felt i was being abused, being tortured while being in my house and she not doing anything towards the household but only insulting me all the time.

And her mother started harassing my mother in India. Finally i saw divorce lawyer and showed my wife the separation agreement, that's when she came to reality. She cried and said she will be a good wife, blah, blah, .... but she didn't really change. And then i took her to attorney to clear her doubts. She was under the opinion that if i divorce her she can take all my property and put me in jail (WTF !)
When her parents knew that we went to the attorney they threatened to kill me and my family (except her daughter ofcourse)

She first promised she will cooperate with divorce but after listening to her parents she refused to cooperate unless i give her Rs. 1crore. So basically her family was trying to make money out of this. On my attorney's advice i left the home immediately and transferred couple of 1000s of USD in her account. I left home because her friends were giving her advice to call the cops and complain that i abused/harassed her and my attorney said that's what girls do, they put false complaints at the time of divorce. I gave her money so if we go before the judge they cannot prove that i left her in financial crisis.
We are not yet over with divorce. She first said she will sign the agreement if i pay $10,000, i paid that and now she's saying she wants the wedding expenses reimbursed. So now i am going to go to trial and fight. She got a job after i left home, because she got green card for marrying me and she put fake 7years of SAP experience. I think the company took her because she had green card and they were willing to train her. Anyway, now she's making as much as i do, so i don't know why i should support her when she has more money than during our marriage tenure. Moreover i also paid her $10000 after i left home. So now i am going to fight for fairness.

Guys, this what some girls do (not all), esp the spoiled irresponsible daughters of rich greedy mothers. Not only do they pass time at home doing nothing productive, they would try to milk your money to the last drop. If i knew this could have happen, i would have probably gone for pre-marriage contract which clearly states that in an event of divorce i will not pay my wife anything. Well, if you have such contract before marriage, it means you lost belief in the marriage already, pretty understandable !

There were clear signs about the girl and her mother before the marriage, but you went for the marriage not to offend them. However, now you see the facts.
Anyway, the first thing to do now is to apply for divorce IMMEDIATELY ! The sooner the divorce starts the less traumatic it will be and less expensive. Keep proof of all the money you spent on her and the marriage, be it gifts, jewellery, tickets, ...
If you are in USA, file in USA, move out of home (let her stay) and serve her summons. For a short term marriage there's nothing she will get as alimony. Most states in USA do not care who's fault it is in the marriage. But you must be sure that she doesn't call the cops for domestice violence/abuse. That's why it's very important that she leave the home immediately without letting her now. She never let her know ahead what you are going to do. And once you file in USA, India has no jurisdiction.

Reply: The boy is on an assignment in USA on a short term visa but mainly works in India. This is a clear case of a girl marrying with an intent of fraud and gaining financially. Indian lawyers still do not go down the anullment route and ask for a divorce to take place. Can a boy lose property and his hard earned money such a characterless woman? The girl first agreed for mutual divorce. Then she said her mother said don't come empty handed. She is consulting a lawyer and writing all sorts of allegations to build a case. She now wants a contested divorce. As soon as the marriage ceremony was over she said she never liked the boy and never wanted to marry him. But when she wants money or wants to stay in others houses, she conveniently states you are my husband and should provide for me. Her family has been supporting her to misbehave, lie, play games and overall portray a sorry image in front of others. She also has an art of crying and stopping instantly....big crocodile tears and when she turns her face she smiles as well. Crafty women....all men beware even if they are long time girlfriends....they are there for a mission.

Exclamation Re: Divorce Laws In India (Grounds for Divorce)

Guys,pls file a divorce ASAP if you see 6 or more symptoms in your wife otherwise you will lose everything in USA. 1. If your wife smiles seeing you in trouble. 2. If she doesn't give you access to her facebook/orkut/email accounts. 3. If she runs away more often from your house on a small argument (Don't go and make her up) 4. If she shares every small thing about your marriage life with her parents 5. If she tries to puts you away from your family 6. If she sends the money back home to India for saving 7. If she calls the police by dialing 911(highly recommended to file a divorce, don't give second chance to her to dial 911) 8. If she shows interest in known famous Divorcee Women 9. If she doesn't listen to you and come on table to talk on the issue calmly. 9. If she said that she and her female friends circle never [talked to/had] any male friend during her college and job 10. If she looks skeptical and doesn't give expressions on the genuine things during conversation. 11. If she stammers in talking with other females such as your friends wife in a fun environment 12. If she doesn't want physical relations in first month of your marriage for any reason 13. If she always remembers the bad things about you 14. If she confesses that she got only married to you just to come to USA and do a job. 15. If she only interested to know about your money and assets but not your monthly expenses and credit card bills.
There are many more symptoms about women but I think these are the most important and I noticed them in my less than 3 years of married life. Guys I used to think that I understand the women nature but I got dumped up by my wife because she made up stories and executes all the time and eventually I LOST everything in USA which I earned in life such as Money, Full time Executive level Job, Background, Credit History and my only Child.
