Hindu can divorce wife if she tries to separate him from aged parents:
Hindu husband can divorce his wife if she tries to separate him from his elderly parents Supreme Court on 6 October 2016 held the decision. The apex court held that it is ‘pious obligation’ of a son to maintain his parents.
It held that a Hindu son can’t separate himself from his parents on getting married at demand of his wife, at least when he is the only earning member in the family.
The observation was made by a bench comprising Justice Anil R Dave and L Nageshwara Rao while confirming the decree of divorce sought by a Karnataka-based man.
As reported, the apex court allowed the man to annul a 24-year old marriage, while setting aside Karnataka High Court judgement which had dismissed the decree of divorce granted by a Bangalore family court in 2001.
