A complete of 577 divorce cases were registered in the Makwanpur District Court in the first 10th months of the present fiscal year.
Of these, 135 were filed by a male, based on court’s registrar Keshab Kumar Kaushik,
It may be noted that the existing National Code that will be in force since Bhadra 1 2075 BS ( August 17, 2018 ) has provisions allowing husbands to straightly look for the legal dissolution of a marriage.
The number of total divorce cases registered in the court last fiscal year was 475 while this figure had already reached 567 till the first 10th month and of them, 194 had been already settled. Family misunderstanding and improving longing for material comforts are seen as apparent causes behind the majority of divorce cases, said intellectual Ram Prasad Acharya.
