Anxity/Depression as ground for divorce.

Will court take anxity / depression as a ground for divorce? I mean not severe but average and medically treatable.

if ur spouse is suffering from mental illness or any other non curable diseease, physical or mental, its a good ground for divorce.

Chronic Disease. Both mental and physical illnesses are included in this category, as well as s*xually transmitted diseases. Not all religions recognize identical diseases as ground for divorce. Christians and Parsis do not allow divorce for a s*xually transmitted disease or leprosy while the other communities do.

Hello Alex

Please go thru the below site  which explains about mental disorder and on what cases divorce is granted

Mental disorder is a ground for dissolution of marriage under a majority of the personal laws. The law relating to divorce is based on two main principles: Firstly, that the person is suffering from a mental disorder of an incurable nature; secondly, that the person should be impossible as a result of the disorder.

Similarly, for a suit for annulment to be successful, it is important to prove that the spouse was suffering from a mental disorder from the time of marriage and that this fact had been concealed. Therefore, even if it has been shown that the person was suffering from unsoundness of mind after marriage, for the grant of nullity it is important to show that the spouse also displayed abnormal behavior before the wedding.
