Dear Expert, wife have no interest in married life and having kids. She does all house hold work, job but do not want to keep any marital relation with husband. Husband have offered her good money for mutual divorce also , but due to social stigma, she wants to keep married status. Wife is not willing to divorce because reputation of her parents, social stigma. She is telling husband to keep another women for his marital needs . Husband can have kids from second women. She will give her name as mother for kids of second wife.. If husband contests divorce case it will take at least 7-8 years. They are married from last 8 years have no kids . Husband want to marry to another girl , which his wife will finalize. He will not show legally he is married to another women.. First wife is already sleeping in separate room from many years. Wife has agreed and promised she will cooperate with second wife, second wife can stay with husband. Husband has also agreed, he will take care of first wife even if second women comes in home. Legally this is wrong.. But can husband keep second women without showing as second wife.. he will not mention his name in relation with second women. Current marriage is not working only because of marital relations, wife is not at all willing to give divorce legally. What is best solution to meet objective of both husband and wife?

You are asking for trouble from all sides. It will all happen in fantasy world - but law is against your actions. Even if it takes time, better go in for divorce if you have proper grounds, rather than taking these unnatural steps.

I regard my seniors but i went thru this kind of situation in a case i handled.
Husband got exparte decree of div. against first wife as wife was impotent but reluctant to abandon husband.
Later on after limitation period of appeal has passed the husband re-married with another girl.
Getting knowledge of this second marriage first wife came to me for advice. I filled a pet. for set-aside exparte decree passed in favor of husband. Notice served upon husband. Then both came to me stating that they want to save both marriages.
Husband prayed and not opposed to court in setting-aside decree passes as such mentioned above. After if husband withdrawn his divorce petition.
Afterward the question arose that the second marriage is valid or not??
I put this question to all learned members of this forum. May you please reply.
