HC upholds court order dissolving mandolin maestro's marriage

"When the parties cannot live in peace, no purpose will be served in keeping the parties tied by the bond of marital relationship," a Division Bench comprising Justices Elipe Dharma Rao and M Venugopal observed in its order on an appeal by Sree, challenging the Principal Family Court order.

Stating that the court should not shy away from reality while granting relief, the Judges said in this case, a stage has been reached where both parties found it impossible to live together due to the allegations and counter allegations by each, mentally and psychologically affecting them.

"The same has gone to such an extent that each party has developed repulsion to the other," the bench said.

It opined that no useful purpose would be served in keeping the marriage intact. Marital ties had broken down.

"A marriage which is dead practically and emotionally, the continuance of the same will prolong the mental agony and affliction and it is cruelty," the Bench said.

In addition to the lower court order directing Srinivas to pay Rs five lakh each to Sree and their minor son, the Bench directed him to pay an additional Rs five lakh each to both Sree and the son towards permanent maintenance in full and final settlement.
