I know a case where both the fallopian tubes of the women are blocked and she can't bear a child. Does the impotency law apply to her also and marriage can be annulled? 

If after marriage, man suffers an accident and is rendered incapable of cohabiting with wife, what will happen?

Any takers for this?

KOLKATA: A 55-year-old Kolkata businessman found out what it would perhaps be like to have an overdose of Viagra. The father of two, ended up with a prolonged erection that lasted for — hold your breath — a full 21 days. 

And the exasperated gentleman, who found the situation too hot to handle, had not consumed the magic pill. His predicament resulted from a neurological disorder. It took an emergency surgery to relieve him but the man might have lost his ability to resume s*xual activity, said doctors at the Wockhardt Hospitals. 

The man had been suffering from a problem called priapism — triggered by a peripheral nervous system disorder. 


Sh Anil ji,

There is SC case Law which speaks that "s*x" is intrigal part of any marriage and without it ...... So yes your questions is answered with a big YES.
BTW I am curious to know no. of 'blue pills' this man took to go into such a bad relapse phase (a purely medical question I asked)
