The Indian Divorce Act, 1869 enacted in 26.2.1869 remained a big headache both for the Indian Christians as well legal luminaries to amicably dissolve a dead marriage in a decent manner, but just because of the Religious head of various Sects of Christian in India, their protest & preventing necessary amendments in this more then century old enactment. It was the brave step taken by my senior in the legal profession Sh. Arun Jaitley then Minister of Law in the NDA government brought about the Indian Divorce (Amdt.) Act,2001 w.e.f.3-10-2001 & Marriage Laws(Amdt.),2001,w.e.f.24-9-2001 where a drastic amendment were made in this Act which provided not only various grounds for unilateral form of divorce by either of the parties married according to the Christian form of marriage but even provide for divorce by mutual consent, in other words this Divorce Act, applicable to people married under the Christian Marriage Act,1872 in India now were equated with people married under the Hindu Marriage Act,1955 or the Special Marriage Act,1955 for matters relating to dissolution of marriage. It was because of this amendment in the Divorce Act you were able to obtain divorce by mutual consent from your Christian wife if this amendment was not there you would still be tied with her or would be searching other ways out to get the marriage dissolved legally or illegally.
