Indian Woman Toilet Divorce

Indian Woman Toilet Divorce

Indian woman given permission to divorce husband after he fails to install toilet

[reference article below]


Don’t know about the divorce thingy, but the husband is in need of serious repentance.

If this situation were in Enumclaw Washington Sound Doctrine Church, i.e. Timothy Williams would have ensured the church build a toilet for the wife – but alas – I was ran out of town as many Christian preachers are in India.

Trouble is the husband probably doesn’t mind peeing outside so I would have to back up to square 1 on what love really is.

In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church– (Ephesians 5:28-29)

Bonus:

Evidently, this issue has been going on for some time – too bad Christian preachers are so often ran out of town – kinda nothing new about that fact.

(telegraph.co.uk)—husband after he consistently refused to build a toilet in their home, forcing her to relieve herself in the open.

Family court judge Rajendra Kumar Sharma in India’s western Rajasthan state ruled on 18 August that a toilet was a necessity in every home and defecating in the open was ‘disgraceful’ for society and ‘torture’ for women.

“In villages women have to wait until sunset to answer nature’s call. This is not only physical cruelty, but also outraging the modesty of a woman” the judge ruled.

People spend money buying tobacco, alcohol and mobile phones, but are unwilling to construct toilets to protect the dignity of their family, he added.

The woman’s counsel said she was married in 2011 to a labourer and filed for divorce four years later citing cruelty by her husband, as he was unable to provide the couple a separate room or a toilet.

Divorce under Indian law is granted once proof of cruelty, violence or undue financial demands are proven in a family court.

Media reports from Rajasthan’s Bhilwara district, where the woman lives, said she would now formally file for divorce.

This is not the first time that a toilet has played a decisive role in a marriage in India.
