In parts of India, defecation in the open fields is common. An Indian woman has been granted permission to divorce her husband because he would not build a toilet in their home. The woman in her 20s had been married for five years, but had been forced to relieve herself in nearby fields. Indian law only allows divorce in limited circumstances such as domestic violence or proven cruelty.The woman's lawyer told the AFP news agency that the judge said forced open defecation was a form of torture.
In the UK the ground for a divorce is irretrievable breakdown of marriage .You can say that the breakdown has occurred because your spouse has behaved in such a way that you cannot reasonably be expected to live with him or her .Allegations of behaviour are different in each case and often personal to the parties involved and there must be enough poor behaviour to justify a petition . As the recent case of Mr and Mrs Owens has shown it is prudent to take legal advice before starting proceedings particularly if there is a risk that your husband or wife may not agree to the allegations that are being made . Taking initial advice can avoid complications and save costs , we at Freeths can help so call us .
