Wife Who Has Visited To The Matrimonial Home For The Last Rituals Of Mother-In-Law Can Be A Proving Factor To Show The Resumption Of Marital Relation Between Husband And Wife

Whether The (Separate Living) Wife Who Has Visited To The Matrimonial Home For The Last Rituals Of Mother-In –Law Can Be A Proving Factor To Show The Resumption Of Marital Relation Between Husband And Wife

A and B married in June 2009. After 13 days, both are living separately till today. Though she came to visit matrimonial home at time of mother in law death The Supreme Court held that desertion is proved because both never went to consummate the marriage and were living separately from beginning till today. The intention of visiting matrimonial home for 1 day was not to resume the marriage but to attend the last rituals of mother in law. The husband never filed restitution of conjugal rights either. Hence, desertion proved 1.

  1. The reasons for a dispute between husband and wife are always very complex. Every matrimonial dispute is different from another. Whether a case of desertion is established or not will depend on the peculiar facts of each case. It is a matter of drawing an inference based on the facts brought on record by way of evidence.
     
  2. The desertion means the intentional abandonment of one spouse by the other without the consent of the other and without a reasonable cause. The deserted spouse must prove that there is a factum of separation and there is an intention on the part of deserting spouse to bring the cohabitation to a permanent end. In other words, there should be animus deserendi on the part of the deserting spouse.
     
  3. There must be an absence of consent on the part of the deserted spouse and the
    conduct of the deserted spouse should not give a reasonable cause to the deserting
    spouse to leave the matrimonial home.
