Bhopal, January 25: In an unusual turn of events, a woman in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, has filed for divorce from her husband following a dispute over their honeymoon destination. The couple, who got married in August last year, had initially planned to visit Goa for their honeymoon. However, the husband, an IT engineer, insisted on visiting a domestic religious place instead, citing his elderly parents’ desire to visit a temple.

ABPlive reported that despite the husband’s insistence, the couple eventually agreed to visit Goa. However, the woman alleges that her husband informed her a day before the trip that they would be visiting Ayodhya and Varanasi instead, at his mother’s behest. This sudden change of plans led to a heated argument upon their return from the trip. HC on Divorce: Wife Not Preparing Food for Husband Due to Lack of Cooking Skills Is Not Cruelty, Says Kerala High Court.

It remains to be seen how the counselling sessions will affect the couple’s decision to divorce.
