If a Hindu married woman refuses to wear conch shells, then it must be assumed that she no longer wants to be in a marital relationship. She is denying cohabitation with her husband. In this sense, there could be a divorce case, said the Guwahati High Court. Chief Justice Ajay Lamba and Justice Soumitra Saikia, two members of the High Court, said in their judgment that a woman did not want to wear shellfish, meaning she was married to her husband. Because, under Hindu marriage law, marriage means entering the marital life by acknowledging all these aspects. In this context, continuing the marital life with the wife can be called harassment. Earlier, a similar case was filed in the family court of Assam. There, too, the husband claimed that his wife did not wear conch shells and vermilion, and sought his divorce on the basis of many other allegations. But the family court dismissed the case. The details later revealed that the bride refused to be in the joint family of the man in a family way. His demand was to separate.
