An Indian Court this week has refused a husband petition for divorce, because his wife refused to give her consent.
Although the court heard from the husband that they had not lived together as a couple for 12 years, the Court still sided with the wife, who they noted suffered with brain damage, believing the husband would not give consent if the shoe was on the other foot.
