I have a query which I cant solve just by searching on the internet and hence i stumbled upon this website.
I have been married since 5 months and everything seemed ok. The man i got married to was already married but seperated from his wife. I knew him since my college days and we were in a relationship before he got married. I moved away to england to study and he got married here. It was mutually and amicably decided to do the right thing. He soon seperated from his 1st wife due to her bad behaviour and we started talkin again. I finished my studies and came back to india and we fell in love again. I was so much in love that we decided to get married. My father doesnt know of his past and our famiily memebers co-operated and we got married in arya samaj temple.
the problem now im facing is that his divorce is not coming through as promised by him and i found out that nothing has been done legally.. his 1st wife just left him and thats when we met.
i searched on the internet that i can annul this marriage but i am completly ignorant of these legalities and dont know where to start. I feel trapped and helpless. Also, I wantit to be on grounds of him being already married. I dont want any legal action against him as i fear that he will be penalised if the court knows of his 1st marriage(something i dont know because of my ignorance). All i want is a quiet annulment and just leave. I dont want him to get hurt. will he be punished if i file for annulment based on his 1st marriage. OR if our marriage is automatically null right frm the start then can i just leave or i still need any proper filing or paper or documenty????
Please if someone is out there who can help me sort things out then i will be really greatful.
