>Wife has utterly failed to prove any ground to seek divorce. There is no
reliable evidence of record to prove that the conduct/ behaviour of the husband
has become intolerable for the wife or she was continuously tortured, maltreated
or beaten by the husband.
No doubt, husband has no right to treat his wife with cruelty, but at the same
time wife is also required to be tolerant, passive and of adjustable nature. The
court can not Blink at her act of total indolence and petulance. Therefore, the
appellant is not entitled to divorce.
In this case ,the appellant Court below recorded a finding that the allegation
of unchastely made by the husband - respondent against the appellant was false.
So also it found that the allegation of the appellant against the husband -
respondent that the latter was living in adultery was also false. In the case
only ground which was urged was that the appellant had been falsely accused of
being unchaste and that his accusation amounted to cruelty.
The appellant had therefore, to establish that his false accusation of
unchastity had caused a reasonable apprehension in her mind that it would be
harmful or injurious for her to live with the respondent . She has failed to
establish this fact. The Appellant Court below was , therefore, correct in not
granting a decree of Divorce to her.
