My husband has been verbally abusing me since the day we got married. Every week there is some big tamasha made out of a small thing and I have to listen to mean things from my husband and mother-in-law. They tell me to get out of their house in every fight. I had my doubts about this marriage even in our courtship period. But my engagement was broken once before and I was thinking that if this breaks it might make my parents upset. My marriage is six months old but I see no future. I am treated like a parayah and scolded for everything. If my husband makes a mistake everyone sides with him.
Last week they started calling me characterless and what not. I am a postgraduate and can rejoin my old job which I had given up after marriage. I came to my parents but they are telling me to go back. They say all this is normal and that I am having adjustment problems. Being yelled at daily is not normal.
I want a divorce now. But I am alone in my battle. Please tell me how to go ahead Sir. Also, how long will the process take? Court battles are scary. I want a clean divorce.
Advocate Ram Kunwar says:
You can seek divorce on the grounds of mental cruelty. However, please note that you can’t file for divorce unless
