As per the Section 13 of the Act, the grounds for divorce include:-
These grounds are defined below ;
Adultery is voluntarily involving into s*xual intercourse with person other than your spouse.
Desertion is abandonment of your spouse for a continuous period not less than two years.
Conversion is another important ground for divorce. This refers to situations where a person is forced to impelled to convert his/her religion for the sake of marriage.
Leprosy is a skin disease which is a ground for divorce under the Hindu Marriage Act (HMA) 1955.
Cruelty is a ground for divorce. It refers to activities done by the husband or relative of the husband of a woman, such that they've been impelling danger to the life or limb of the woman.
These are the general grounds for divorce under the Hindu Marriage Act 1955.
Thus, seeking for divorce is easy to be achieved only if the criteria meets up the above given above.
However, a wife or husband can still file a suit for divorce under a family court through a civil suit, if they've been unaware of any sort of disease that they're spouse has been dealing with before the marriage.
If by chance a person is married and after the commencement he or she comes to know that his/her spouse have been dealing a severe disease (that could cause death/sever issue to lead a healthy or normal life) even before the marriage and such a thing wasn't disclosed to them that time. Then, the aggrieved spouse could file a divorce on the basis of fraud done to them.
Therefore, it's better to disclose any such issues before the commencement of the marriage only.
If the matter gets public, it may lead to divorce but only if the wife wishes to do so. If she's satisfied that the disease haven't had any adverse effect it's good to go.
But precaution is better than cure. So incase things don't go as desired, you would need to prove that the disease isn't life threatening and isn't severe enough. Thus, the man would lead a healthy and normal life just the he had been living since past 25 years. For this you may need a fitness certificate.
However, hope for the best.
Hope you're clear about the logic.
