#SupremeCourt #SupremeCourtofIndia #divorce #law Image
Justice Sanjiv Khanna: We have divided the judgment into sections. Article 142 must be considered in light of the fundamental rights.

It should contravene a non derogable function of the Constitution. Court under the power is empowered to complete justice.
Order: We have held that the period of six months can be dispensed with.

It is possible for this Court to dissolve the marriage on irretrievable breakdown of marriage.

We have laid out the factors for this, specifically with regards to maintenance and rights of the children.

You cannot trust everything you read on the internet!

I'll walk you through one of the recent GIGANTIC FAKE NEWS stories.

How it began? and what you can learn from it?

A thread 🧵
Governments, mainstream media outlets and other malevolent groups intentionally spread fake news to manipulate public opinion, create division, and promote their own agenda.

🚩They make clickbait headlines, sensational stories and news that seem too good or bad to be true...
Well, this massively set up story may not have a tragic intent behind it, and it surely does not have the same impact as other falsehoods.

But I chose to discuss it because it is an excellent illustration of how fake news can proliferate to a point where it's no longer doubtful

🧵Especially in recent months, I’ve seen an uptick of men claiming that their ex wives were wrong for filing for divorce against them, “she was the one who filed” is a common complaint as if who files first indicates who was most guilty.
Studies show that women are more likely to file for divorce but their reasons often point to the other party having broke the actual marriage vows. She may file when the situation gets bad enough that she cannot or will not submit to mistreatment.
We know that it takes two people to make a marriage work, but in cases of abuse, it only takes one person to destroy it.

Senior Advocate @IJaising begins submissions.

#SupremeCourt #SupremeCourtofIndia #Divorce
Sr Adv Jaising: I will address the second question first. The first is powers under 142. In my opinion that's a relatively easy question to answer.

But on the question whether irretrievable breakdown divorce can be granted..

One post by someone I follow triggered a series of thoughts. I have great respect for her but I thought I must dispel some misconceptions.
Rishis, our shastras do not recommend divorce, yes, but in many cases involving children, esp.if the spouse has a psychopathic character, a legal document becomes necessary.
And to get that document, petitioners go through literal hell.
Most often the decision to separate and get a divorce is not done in an instant. I know people who have endured decades of violence, torture at the hands of the spouse before they take this step.

Most people have no idea that almost all the evidences used by the Depp team came from Amber. They simply used her own phone recordings against her.

She tried to entrap Depp and she recorded them herself! Depp didn’t claim to be a perfect husband, but he insisted he never
abused Amber!

Jesus said ‘lead us not into temptation’!

Those that want out of a #relationship should be bold enough to do so. They should walk away without ruining that person’s life.

One of my friends here on FB was denied sex by his own wife for 2 years.
The wife even
went ahead to use the photo of a boyfriend as her FB display.

Not satisfied with the gentility of husband regarding that, she went ahead and carried boyfriend to spend Christmas with a family friend of her and her husband. Who carried boyfriend to a family friend’s house whilst

#Navamsa is a world of knowledge in itself. Navamsa is also called Baghya-Amsa and Dharma-Asma. The dharma bhava is the 9th and the fruits of dharma is the 11th from it. This is the 7th. No wonder elders have taught that blessing of the spouse accelerates #Spirituality.
The troubles in marriage life is one of the harshest experiences in owns life, The trouble pointers are the 6th, 8th, and 12th FROM the 7th house (In navamsa). #jyotishkatti #marriage #love
The 6th house from D9 lagna will be the 12th from the 7th. This shows the spouse rejections ans losses. This indicates what the spouse is rejecting.

Malefics here can play havoc in married life. More afflictions can point to celibacy. #jyotishkatti #marriage #love #divorce

The couple's daughters had also testified against their mother.

Louisa Westropp (born 1858), following a marriage characterised by constant domestic violence, sued her husband for divorce on the grounds of cruelty. Before Irish independence, cruelty was, in theory, legal grounds for divorce.....
#IrishWomenInHistory #NollaigNamBan
..... but men were considered to have the right to physically 'chastise' their wives, as women at that time had few rights (including the right to custody of their own children) cruelty was almost never cited in #divorce proceedings.
#IrishWomenInHistory #NollaigNamBan
It was the first time an #Irish #woman sued her husband for divorce on grounds of cruelty, and it set a legal precedent. Terrible as things were for Louisa, they were much worse for women from less wealthy backgrounds.

*THREAD* (1/n) Often feminists don't agree to the fact that men in India suffer due to gender biased laws- in favor of women. Argument is, there are no statistics which suggest that Indian men suffer. So there is no need for gender neutral laws or a national commission for men.
(2/n)Well the statistics were always there but mostly ignored. I've collated some stats from NCRB data for Crime in India 2019. Despite these facts, people still play the 'women victim', 'abla nari' card. Let us look at what the statistics say -
(3/n) Analysis and approach - 1. For simplicity, the focus of this analysis will only be on crime against women. 2. Crimes like IPC 506 (Criminal intimidation), IPC 354C (Voyeurism), IPC 354D (Stalking), IPC 406 (Criminal breach of trust) have been left out in this analysis-

THREAD: Ex-partner has emailed me to tell she’s confiscated their tech last night and so won’t be contactable today, when we normally have a phone/Skype call this evening.
No suggestion of alternative.
This in the context of talking about importance to maintain contact just weeks ago, to remove barriers, and how tricky it can be to get in touch with them via eldest’s mobile and younger two’s Skype accounts
and how difficult it has been during lockdown when I wasn’t able to see them for months due to restrictions. That I’m trying to ensure regular contact, like I always have, in between now only seeing them on Saturdays.

#Divorce is always hard and painful. Even for those who have every reason to split. So no, please don't celebrate. It's a death. Of a relationship. Of hope. Of trust. Respect the institution. Respect the people in it. Respect those who give up. Don't make it about you.
It's a slippery slope for us Indians. We are still very kids-centric, extended family, log Kya kahenge ..... So many just drag relationships out of inertia or just comfort. That's not a marriage. It's just two people sharing the same address.
The only time it's a clear-cut decision is when there is violence, impotence, incompatibility. But there are other things. Maybe with new age tech and shallow and consistent need for attention and validation, the maturity of people is plummeting.

Short thread on #Catholicism (lapsed, in my case), #highered, #divorce, & what it means to allow grace into our lives on Holy Thursday & always.

#HolyThursday is my favorite day of the Catholic year: It's a day to reflect not only on serving others, but on letting them serve us.
As a child in the Catholic Church, I knew service represented the core of my family's faith. How can we use our gifts to enrich others? How can we make ourselves humble before the tasks of service? How can we bless others via care?

Turns out, this is the EASY part of service.
It is EASY to serve my students, my friends, and my family by loving them. By showing mercy when mistakes are made. By offering space and by offering closeness. By loving others in ways that work for THEM, not just ways that would work for ME.

Being a servant this way is easy.

Women make a difference, then and now.
“As it turns out, nearly two-thirds of all known rescuers have been found to be women.”

Make your plans about how you can save our families, our country.
I’ve been repeatedly warned that I’ll destroy my career if I dare speak out, so most of my political tweets and blogs are under a different name.
BUT when a govt starts harming children and their families, I realized that speaking out for them IS my career.
I need some help
I delayed my divorce until my kids were beyond custody battles, thinking I could obtain my share of our assets to move on.
I didn’t realize that divorce cts in the US (some worse than others) are set up 2 asset-strip and discard the more dependent spouse, like venture capitalists
