FAQ's Mutual Divorce

Procedure in Mutual Divorce
Any divorce is difficult be it Mutual but still less bothersome and time consuming than Contested. You won't believe me until it happens to you. I am extremely sorry to be straight but that's happening when men from mars get married to women from venus. 
It has become equally difficult to get married and even broke marriage if not satisfied, be it in any manner. As per Indian Laws, even wives cannot be forced to stay with husbands as Restitution of Conjugal Rights (Sec 9 of HMA) is still an unenforceable decree.  Even if you win restitution case, still no authority can bring back wife to her matrimonial home. The recent judgment of Supreme Court pronouncing girls above 18 to live their life on their own terms has strengthened this view further.
Moral- You can't force someone to love you, stay with you or bear you, so what if you are married.
