“Marriage” a scared ceremony, a bond tying not only the pair but the entire family, thus itself becomes a law equally important as any other law. India a secular country, with variety of religions and not having a uniform code, Muslim marriages are governed by Muslim Personal Law/ Shariat law whereas Hindu marriages are governed by Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 and similarly Christian Marriage Act, 1872 applies to Christians. In case of Special cases Special Marriage Act, 1954 applies universally to all religions. “Marriage is a contract” “Contracts are meant to be broken” therefore rules and regulations regarding troubled marriages are enshrined under Indian Divorce Act, 1869.
