‘Use and throw’ culture affecting marriages: Kerala high court

The younger generation thinks marriage is an evil to be avoided to enjoy life without any obligation, the Kerala High Court observed while dismissing an appeal filed by a man seeking divorce from his wife. A division bench of Justices A Muhamed Mustaque and Sophy Thomas also said the consumer culture of ‘use and throw’ seems to have influenced matrimonial relationships also. “They would expand the word ‘WIFE’ as ‘Worry Invited For Ever’, substituting the old concept of ‘Wise Investment For Ever’- Live-in relationships are on the rise, just to say goodbye when they fell apart,” the judgment written by Justice Sophy said.
