India - To secure matrimony, registration must

Registration of marriages is urgently required to ensure brides and grooms, especially those married to NRIs, have evidence of the bond. Punjab, which has a large number of matrimonial frauds, is yet to make it mandatory under the law.

A marriage break-up is not only a painful process for those involved but also has a social cost, with increased litigation and creation of liabilities in the form of ditched spouses, especially women.

The problems are further compounded in NRI marriages, in which parties import foreign matrimonial laws to address unions solemnised domestically in India. Therein lies the need to bestow upon marriage a surety grounded in firm legal basis.
