Supreme Court of India has struck down IPC section 497:
A five-judge bench of the court ruled that section 497 of the Indian Penal Code violates
women’s right to equality and treats them like the property of their
husbands. “It’s time to say that (a) husband is not the master of
(his) wife,” Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra read out from the judgement.
So, now, can any married person get a divorce without any arguments and/or accusing their partners, based on
the 'right to choose' as a fundamental right?
