“The city of Delhi is a costly place to live. Family budgeting and especially when a child is born is becoming a herculean task even for the financially well-off and even they come under financial stress it puts stress on the matrimonial bond,” a bench headed by justice Pradeep Nandrajog said.
The remarks came while the court dismissed an appeal filed by a man challenging an order of the family court, which rejected his plea for divorce from his wife.
The court termed instances of “cruelty” cited by the husband as frivolous.
