A court order ending a marriage is called a divorce. The divorce must have a "legal reason" according to the court. Apart from the formal dissolution of the marriage, the court considers other matters that must be resolved before the divorce is finalized. Hindu law did not recognize divorce since marriage was seen as an irreversible bond between a husband and wife. Manu's declaration that a wife cannot be freed from her husband through sale or abandonment suggests that there is no way to break the bonds of matrimony. As a result, divorce is not recognized by Hindu law as written. Hindu law does not currently address divorce, but it has been decided that if a custom is accepted as established, it becomes enforceable. We all know that a happy family life depends on the husband and wife in a Muslim marriage, which gives rise to the concept of divorce. Islam, therefore, mandates that marriages be maintained and that it is best to avoid breaking the terms of the marriage contract.
