India is a secular country and its constitution and justice system allows a fair amount of flexibility for people to uphold their religion values and traditions when it comes to marriage and its dissolution. The system fully recognizes that not only are there a variety of issues that can impact marital stability but individuals would like to find solutions based on their religious and communal traditions. Keeping in mind the varying community requirements based on religious and personal beliefs, the following acts govern the procedure of divorce in India:
• The Converts’ Marriage Dissolution Act, 1866
• The Indian Divorce Act, 1869
• The Indian Christian Marriage Act, 1872
• The Anand Marriage Act, 1909
• The Indian Succession Act, 1925
• The Child Marriage Restraint Act, 1929
• The Parsi Marriage and Divorce Act, 1936
• The Dissolution of Muslim Marriage Act, 1939
• The Special Marriage Act, 1954
• The Hindu Marriage Act, 1955
• The Foreign Marriage Act, 1969 and
• The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Divorce) Act, 1986.
