The legal framework governing marriage and divorce in India is a complex tapestry woven with diverse personal laws, influenced by various religious and cultural traditions. The Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, the Special Marriage Act, 1954, and the Dissolution of Muslim Marriages Act, 1939, among others, provide the legal basis for marriage and divorce, catering to the country's pluralistic society. These laws outline the eligibility criteria, procedures, and grounds for divorce, such as adultery, cruelty, desertion, and mutual consent. The courts play a crucial role in interpreting and applying these laws, ensuring that the rights and interests of both parties are protected. Additionally, the Supreme Court has made significant contributions to the evolution of marriage and divorce laws, upholding the principles of gender equality and individual autonomy.
