need clarification

This is a divorce case and the respondent did not appear even a single time for the court on the dates, in spite of appointing a lawyer on their behalf. Exparty was given on our favor. Judgement was given as "COntested-Dismissed' and "This suit is dismmissed. No costs", and "Case disposed". I cannot understand the exact meaning of this.

Case dismissed means the suit filed by the petitioner is dismissed and no expesnes awarded to opponents.

The plaintiff further submits that the defendant is being Hindu governed by Hindu law and the Hindu marriage act will only applicable to the defendant and the plaintiff further submits that the plaintiff is Christian and the Indian Christian marriage act will be applicable to the plaintiff and the defendant family following the rites And customs and ceremonies including the saptapadi And marriage becomes complete and binding only after completion of seventh step by the bridegroom and bride jointly before the sacred fire and their plaintiff further submits that none of the way you performed and the plaintiff submits that the marriage was not solemnized in a church By giving prior Notice In the church at least three weeks before the marriage for seeking any objections if any person nor solemnized By the marriage licensed church pastor or the priest of the church and had also not registered in the marriage register maintained by authorities and hence the marriage was not solemnized either under Christian law nor the hindu lae and the same is not solemnized under special marriage act for which the same is not registered and hence the marriage between the plaintiff and the defendant is a void marriage under law.

This is what we filed the case which was given the above judgement.. Does the judgement mean that the marriage is null and void? Please clarify sir.
