Big Order of the Delhi High Court; “Isolated adultery just isn’t sufficient to bar alimony”

Updated on 04/15/2022 | 4:11 p.m. IST

The Delhi High Court today issued a significant ruling on the issue of adultery. The court commented that “an isolated adultery is not sufficient to disqualify a woman from post-divorce maintenance.” The court also said that “lonely adultery is not the same as living in adultery,” and therefore the laws on deprivation of adultery do not apply. Adultery was decriminalized in India in 2018 as the courts had determined that adultery is a personal matter and should not be intervened by the state. The order is of great importance and is likely to have far-reaching implications for society. Keep watching to learn more! #MirrorNowNews #News #DelhiHighCourt
