RCR Counter U/S-12--U/W- 7(a)&(b).
The respondent has filed a new case for Annulment of Marriage U/S 12, U/W 7(a)&(b).
They are saying two things
1Q) Marriage was by force, threat and suicide warnings, so the respondent managed the petitioner not to consummate the marriage. which is completely false.
2Q) Marriage was not solemnized as per Hindu Customs and Traditions 7(a)&(b).
1A) The marriage was with mutual consent from both the parties, I have a audio recording where she said clearly that "We want to marry and register, we will tell to our parents after 4th semester, may dad is very strict he will defiantly say No and do house arrest, If my dad brings any proposals ill can tell him I'm married ." So went to individuals house as per the plan.
2A) The marriage was solemnized as per Hindu Customary Rites & Ceremonies prevailed in Telugu communities in Andhra Pradesh. like Jilakara-bellam, toe-ring, mangala sutram, arundathi, etc. It was in a temple so the priest did not do sapthapadi, In Telugu communities so people will follow sapthapadi and some people will not. When I met few advocates for my case, some says its not mandatory but as per HMA 7(b) its mandatory. Can any one explain what is correct?
Suggest me whatever you feel about this case. Please tell me how to proceed.
