This a bit unbelievable. Even a village girl or her parents do not perform the marriage without looking at the groom in advance. Even assuming that they did not make such an effort believing the mediator words, atleast on the marriage day on the dias the bride will have to see the groom. Without that the marriage cannot be completed in any religion. Therefore, the bride and groom seen each other only on the first night is unbelievable. Leaving the arguments and assumptions aside, if this is true, since the marriage is already performed, the only remedy is to get divorce through a court of law, for which the bride will have to establish that she was cheated by the mediater. Simultaneously criminal case can be registered against the mediator and the groom for cheating. It also amounts to rape if there was any conjugation between the two. 



can judge declare null and void???

Yes, if it can be proven that the age of the husband was concealed.

Practically very uphill task......................to prove this kind of fraud!


Where the annulment is sought on the ground of fraud, details which  the professional match makers supply bear no relevancy as the parties are at liberty to verify the facts.-Deepayan Chatterjee V.Papiya Chatterjee 1990 (1)HLR 113
