One of my client contacted me for his marital problem. He is Hindu boy got married with Catholic Christian girl. Both of them solemnized their marriage against the will of their parents.
The boy is religious and spiritual person. He is ardent devout of Hindu faith system. Before marriage, girl had put condition that there would not be any religious sign in their home. She will not allow any performing of religious worship.
Boy took it very hard. He found his religious /spiritual sentiments hurt. After nine month they solemnized their marriage under special marriage act.
Boy thought that with the passage of time, is wife would have been flexible with is religious practice.
When they sift in house and started their marital life, boy tried to set up his own corner ( Pooja ghar) his wife opposed it very badly. She removed all religious stuff.
Girl repeatedly threatens him to leave him, for divorce. She repeatedly says…. Why did you marry me, if you had to continue your pooja.
Now Boy is highly distressed , he has attempted suicide also. He is telling that he will renounce the world and would take sanyas. I perceived his problem not the physical and psychological but the spiritual.
Now I invite the comment and opinions of all experienced members.
Is there any legal help for the boy?
In the purview of Indian law/ special marriage act/ any other law what can be done to help this boy?
Whether it can be termed as cruelty in conjugal life?
Kindly give your kind suggestions
Thanks and regards
