If you can’t take care of wife and kids, don’t get married again… HC’s important comment on marriage of Muslims
A bench of Justices S P Kesarwani and Rajendra Kumar upheld the judgment of the family court in Sant Kabirnagar, where a man named Azizur Rahman had appealed to keep the first wife with him. Although wife Hamidunnisha had said that she does not want to live together. The court also ordered that there cannot be an order to live with the husband against his will.
The court said that when the first wife and children cannot bear the expenses, then the second marriage should be avoided on its own. It is cruelty to marry again without the consent of the wife. If the court compels her to live with the husband against the will of the first wife, it will be a violation of the constitutional right to personal liberty and a dignified life.
