Shripal Meshram v. Urmila Meshram

Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 – Section 13(1)(ia) – Martial Cruelty – A decree for divorce can be granted on the ground of cruelty, however, the word ‘cruelty’ has not been defined under the Act, 1955, therefore, the question as to what act or omission or conduct or behavior of a party to a marriage would constitute cruelty has to be understood in the facts and circumstances of each case.
