valuable insights required on sec 2(2) of Hindu marriage act

Hi iam Kumar, here is my scenario. We are married for the last 12 yrs. We have an 8yr old son. My wife has filed for divorce under sec 13, cruelty, under the Hindu marriage act 1955. The question is. 1. My wife is a Hindu and iam a ST. So if only iam an ST here, will this case be considered in court or dismissed as per sec 2(2) of the Hindu marriage act 1955? 2. If dismissed what are our options to dissolve this marriage and under what act? Thank you.

In her petition, its mentioned that, as both parties don't belong to the ST, sec 2(2) does not apply.

ST is a caste and not religion.  If your wife is a Hindu and you are ST, but Hindu, then the marriage is valid and it can be dissolved through Hindu Marriage Act.  But if you are ST, and converted to any other religion, i.e., chrisitanity, then the marriage is invalid.
