Gujarat High CourtA doctor in the Indian city of Surat has been granted a divorce after his wife of 15 years would not allow his parents to visit them.

Judges at the Gujarat High Court said the wife’s refusal, and her attempts to prevent her husband from even talking to his parents, were cruel to her husband, DNA India reports.

The husband’s lawyer AY Kogie said:

“The court granted divorce, holding that the wife’s actions amounted to mental cruelty towards the husband. We had sought dissolution of the marriage as the wife did not want her in-laws to stay with them and also prevented her husband from keeping any contact with his parents. The court ruled that such action can be covered under the definition of mental cruelty.”

The man’s wife was also a doctor. According to the report, she objected to him going to care for his father when he developed leukemia and refused to let the man’s mother stay with them after his father had died.
