According to media sources, as many as 317 couples pursued divorce only in one month in family courts of Rawalpindi. As courts reopened after the summer break, the alarmingly high rate of divorce came into notice.

As for the figures of September only, the courts have issued certificates of marriage dissolution following ‘Khula’ in 11 cases, while in 74 cases, husbands have filed for resolution of disputes with their wives.

Speaking to a local news source, family lawyers revealed that there has been a stark increase in the divorce trend, particularly in the on-going year. Family courts have received 2,781 applications pertaining to divorces, however, in 95% cases, the conflict ended in the dissolution of marriage.

Speaking to the said source, advocate Syed Masood Shah, Sameena Bukhari, Asad Abbasi shared that in their view, the majority of cases were related to couples who eloped, pursued court marriages or free-will marriage.

What is the reason?

According to family lawyers, the major reason for majority love marriages ending in shambles is because they are built on false narratives and shallow promises. The claims are soon unfolded after the marriage. Once the excitement wears off and things start to appear more transparent, the couples usually end up in divorce.

Additionally, in the cases of the marriage of choice, parents are not supportive as well and favor divorce. The divorce laws have been made further easier now. A woman simply saying ‘I don’t want to live with him’ is enough to dissolve the marriage. The ratio of divorce in arranged settings was less, due to a more problem-solving approach and pressure from parents to make it work.

  • The main issue is lack support from households.
    The families of both bride and the groom, are usually inclined to fight on behalf of their Son and daughter, rather than offering them support in resolving disputes. The meddling become so much that in most of the cases that the resulting dispute involving family (specially parents) becomes bigger than the source dispute between the couple. and they call the shots.
    This specially becomes severe in love marriages where parents didnt want the marriage to take place, their egos are hurt, they become even less supportive, “humnay to kaha thaa yahan mat kero shaadi”, ” or na sunno baron kee baat” etc etc .
    In most other societies the harmful practice of helicopter parenting, is limited to education or to a lesser extent professional life of the children, but in South Asia, the personal life/love life, and even married life is effected by this. And since mostly the intention of the parents is good, as they want the best for for their children, if somebody speaks up against this, he/she is termed ungrateful/disrespectful of even westernized.
    Parents don’t listen to general advice of Psychologists, because according to them the “eastern values” are the golden values, and all other stuff is western hooky pokey and propaganda.
    Remember , “Road to hell is paved with good intentions”, just having good intention is not good enough.

  • In love marriages couple is not only blamed but the sorrounding peoples also because they make the satution worse as much as they can do ….and they really wanted to end the relationship in divorce for the sake of their ego’s this is are so called society and there mentality in this era dreams gone backfoot so the real reason is surrounding and lack of understanding
