A family court in Ahmedabad Gujarat has rejected a petition filed by a man seeking divorce from his wife over the ground that she has a beard and has a voice of a man. The man had also contended that he didn’t know, before marriage, that she had facial hair and claimed that the wife’s family duped him.
However, the woman said in her reply to the plea that she had some facial hair due to hormonal imbalance and added that it could be removed through treatment. She alleged that her husband sought divorce as he wanted to kick her out of the house.
After the wife's lawyer made the submissions, the man didn't turn up for further proceedings, prompting the court to dismiss his petition.
