A HIGH Court has granted a couple a divorce after they were unable to agree on where they would stay, reported Makkal Osai.
Dr Rajesh and Dr Rekha married in 2003 and lived together in Mysore in Karnataka state after completing their studies.
In events leading up to their divorce, Dr Rekha had, in 2006, gone to her parents home to give birth to a boy and then refused to go back to her husband’s house.
She offered to set up a clinic for Dr Rajesh in Bangalore and live with him but he was unwilling to relocate from Mysore.
He then wrote to his wife and her parents, requesting her to return with their child but it did not work.
She later lodged a dowry complaint against Dr Rajesh and his family.
He then filed a divorce petition on the grounds that Dr Rekha had left him and was harassing him by lodging a false complaint.
