Legal Value of Unregistered Marriage Declaration U/Hindu Act

I am a Hindu and had married a Hindu Girl in a temple on 9th of Dec 2009 and had jointly signed a Marriage Declaration. For the past 8 years I had been informed by her parents that she had passed away, which as it turns out is not true as she's married some other guy in 2012. The declaration of marriage was not duly registered. Does it have any legal value?

Yes if you have jointly singed marriage certificate

Marriage is legal even if performed in a Mandir. No registration is necessary nor registration gives any validation to a marriage. No declaration is necessary or required to be executed by the parties. The law recognise and take presumption of marriage even if a man and woman residing together as husband and wife. You can approach court by way of WRIT of habus corpus in order to ascertain the whereabout of your wife. The second marriage of your wife, if true, is illegal.

Thanks Mr. A.Sumathy for your appreciation.

When the girl already married another guy and had conjugal life with him happily, what's the point in bringing her back into your life that too sitting silently for such a long period of 9 years. Your motives will be suspected.
