Change In Honeymoon Plan: Woman Seeks Divorce From Husband As He Took Her To Ayodhya Instead Of Goa
New Delhi: A woman from Madhya Pradesh has sought a divorce from her husband just five months after her marriage as he promised her a honeymoon in Goa but took her to Ayodhya and Varanasi instead, the Free Press Journal reported. The unusual case reached the Bhopal family court on January 19, 10 days after the couple returned from their trip, the report added.
In her divorce petition, the woman said that her husband works in the IT sector and gets a good salary. She is also a working woman and earns well, which means that going abroad for a honeymoon was not a big deal for them. However, the woman’s husband refused to take her abroad and insisted on visiting a place in India itself, claiming that he had to take care of his parents. Finally, the couple agreed to visit Goa or South India for their honeymoon.

But later, he booked flights to Ayodhya and Varanasi, without telling his wife. He informed her of the changed travel plans, only a day before the trip, saying that they were going to Ayodhya as his mother wanted to visit the city before the Ram Mandir consecration ceremony.
She didn’t object to the trip at the time and went ahead with the plan without any argument. However, as soon as they returned from the pilgrimage sites, she approached the family court to seek a divorce from her husband. In her statement, she also claimed that her husband took more care of his family members than her. Meanwhile, her husband said that his wife was just making a big fuss.
The couple is currently receiving counseling at the Bhopal Family Court, the report added.
