divorce on basis of refusal of sexual contact ?
« on: September 25, 2017, 12:27:15 AM »
Dear All,

I am married from last 9 months.
Wife is Bank Employee who resides with her parents away from my town.
She was just with me not more than for 2 days consequently.
We never had physical contact and always she said she needed time period i dont know why.
She has broken contact with me from last 3 months.
When i say about opting for Mutually Divorce she denies it.
I'm suffering from stress because all of this behavior.

After one year can i file a divorce case if she will not be ready for Mutual Conscent on basis of this non sexual contact for one year ?

Also she is a govt employee and i'm in private firm having lower salary than her. So i have to given any kind of maintainence OR alimony ??

Please help

You can file a case to nullify your marriage for willful refusal to consummate the marriage by your wife. For filing of this case it is not necessary to wait for one year.

If her income is higher than you, even you can claim maintenance if divorce is granted by the court.

Dear Sir,

Denial to consummate the marriage itself a good ground for cruelty to file for divorce. She may not be entitled for any maintenance as she is earning.

Dear Sir,

The following citation helps you to get divorce on the ground of non consummation .


Denial of Sex to Husband for long time without any sufficient Cause amounts to Mental Cruelty; SC grants Divorce [Read the Judgment]...

A Supreme Court bench comprising of Justice S.J. Mukhopadhayaya and Justice Prafulla C. Pant, in a judgment delivered yesterday, upheld dissolution of marriage between the parties, on the grounds of denial of sex as amounting to mental cruelty....

The Court observed, “Undoubtedly, not allowing a spouse for a long time, to have sexual intercourse by his or her partner, without sufficient reason, itself amounts mental cruelty to such spouse. A Bench of Three Judges of this Court in Samar Ghosh vs. Jaya Ghosh (2007) 4 SCC 511 has enumerated some of the illustrations of mental cruelty.”
