We have not reached these western standards of ‘marriage today and talaq tomorrow’. Therefore, when the wife wants the marriage to continue in the marriage, then the court will not use its powers under Article 142 to dissolve the marriage on the petition of the husband. The consent of both will be necessary for divorce. The petition of the husband in the Supreme Court in which there was a demand to annul the marriage. refused to hear that petition.

40 days is not enough to understand both
