Consenting couples need not wait for divorce any more

In a judgment delivered in December,2013, The Bombay High Court had ruled :

“The waiver though not specified in law, be read into it as the main object of the provision is to liberalize divorce,” and added, “It was never the intention of the legislature that such period is to be observed irrespective of the facts; where a marriage has irretrievably broken and there are no chances of a reunion, as it would be futile to wait for six months”.

  1. In a recently reported judgment the Bombay High Court in a case of NRI held that a marriage performed under the Hindu Marriage Act can be dissolved only under the said Act.. Kindly give me the citation and facts of the case.

  2. The Case to declare the marriage null and void can be filed by the mother or father of the husband?
