One sad case that came to us was a woman Akriti with two young children and had been practically deserted by her husband. They were married about 7 years back, and she was brought here from the small town she grew up in. Her husband Sam with was working in an IT company and showed little interest in family matters, but she was too naïve to react or retaliate. Eventually, he stopped giving any money and stopped coming home, and she was left alone to fend for the family. She being barely educated, unemployed, and clueless about future, came to us after having got nowhere with family negotiations. We were able to secure her divorce from him showing reasons for desertion and mental cruelty. He had also got involved with another woman, so the process was easy to seek a divorce. She and the children receive monthly maintenance and are now much better off.
On the contrary, we also came across a couple Parth and Lousie who got married after a scandalous love affair, against both their parents and after 6 months of cohabitation, decided to get divorced. It was all based on impulsive decisions, and once differences began to surface, they were rather interested in separating than sorting out. So they mutually decided to draw up a settlement and got a mutual divorce through us.
What we have felt from observing the trend of cases that come to us, is that most young couples are inclined towards parting ways rather than hanging on, and believe in peaceful lives alone than compromising together. It is sad that all major life decisions are based on spur-of-the-moment instincts in a large majority of youth today. But a large number of people also silently suffer torments and cruelty from their partners, clinging on to the norms of the sanctity of marriage. The irony of this!
