Changes in Hindu Marriage Law in India

The Union Government of India has approved various proposals seeking changes in the Hindu Marriage Act of 1955 – the law that governs the marriages in India. The most important change is that women will be entitled to a share in the property or assets acquired by the couple after marriage. Another highlight is that the six months cooling period can be waived and divorce can be granted immediately – irretrievable breakdown of marriage is a new ground for granting divorce.

You can read more about the changes in the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 and the Special Marriage Act, 1954 here at the Times of India.

Dr S Radhakrishnan Musings

Those who have had personal experience of God refuse to express that experience in verbal forms or logical propositions. Every form is an approximation, is a shadow of that ultimate substance.

Man’s moral life consists in avoiding the two extremes of self-indulgence and self-mortification.
Every thinker starts on his religious quest with a profound sense of dissatisfaction with this world.
Only the permanent, the eternal, can give happiness to man.
There is no use of saying the fault is in the stars. The fault is in ourselves. We have to scrutinise our own nature, and we have to make ourselves different from what we are.
