Pursing employment against a husband’s wishes does not amount to cruelty, holds Allahabad HC
In an appeal from a family court decision which had granted divorce to husband on the grounds that the wife had subjected him to cruelty by taking up gainful employment against his wishes, the Allahabad High Court has observed that a wife working against the wishes of a husband or his family is not ‘cruelty,’ and does not entitle him to divorce. Emphasizing on due process of law, the court laid out various considerations that would constitute cruelty.
