Marriages do not seem to last long when it comes to Bollywood. While this is, of course, not true for all the celebrity couples who’ve managed to live a happy married life; but, it is true for those who couldn’t stand the test of time. Be it due to choosing a career over a partner or due to other personal reasons, here are some of the Bollywood shortest marriages ever.
- How many types of marriages are there in India?
It is quite hard to pinpoint the exact number of marriage rituals in India, as the Hindu marriage itself has great diversity. But, talking about the types of marriages at a basic level, there are nine types of marriages in India. These include Hindu Marriage, Christian Marriage, Muslim Marriage, Sikh Marriage, Parsi Marriage, Buddhist Marriage, Jain Marriage, Court Marriage, and Mixed Marriages.
Although the marriage laws followed here are the same, but the ceremonies might differ. For instance, the Hindu Marriage follows Vedic rituals and the three rituals of Kanyadaan, Panigrahana, and Saptapadi; the Christian marriages are performed by a priest in Church, while the Sikh wedding takes place in a Gurudwara.
- Can someone take divorce after 3 months of marriage?
A divorce cannot be filed unless and until a year has expired from the date of marriage. It is only in exceptional cases that a divorce can be filed before the expiry of 1 year. And, as per Section 13b of the Hindu Marriage Act, you can get a divorce within 6 months from the court.
However, if you want to file for divorce within 1 year of marriage, you can file for leave of appeal under Section 14 of the Hindu Marriage Act. The divorce proceedings will commence once the appeal has been granted.
- What is the new divorce law in India?
The Supreme Court has brought significant relaxation for Hindu couples filing a divorce. According to the new divorce law in India, the six-month waiting period prescribed under Section 13B is not mandatory but discretionary. It has given directions to lower courts to speed up the divorce process.
Under Section- 24 of the Hindu Marriage Act, the expenses of legal proceedings will be entitled to either of the spouses. The court can also direct the payment of maintenance entirely or monthly under Section 25 of the Act.
- Primary difference between Hindu Marriage laws and Muslim marriage laws
The basic difference between Hindu and Muslim marriage law is that marriage in Hindus harmonizes the two-individual eternity, while in Muslims, marriage is the legal contract between two individuals that takes place with their will and consent.
Hindu marriage is a religious sacrament as only with the performance of some religious rites; the marriage is considered complete. On the other hand, Muslim marriage has nothing to do with religion and is purely a social contract. In Hindus, individuals do not marry within their own caste, but Muslims do the opposite.
