Family Courts Witness More Women Seeking Divorce From Gay Husbands

When a 26-year-old woman from Thodupuzha entered a wedlock with a 38-year-old man from Kothamangalam, little she did know what was in store for her. All she dreamt was of a happy family life. But her dreams were shattered when her husband kept away from her from the very first day of their marriage. He preferred to stay at his farm in Kothamangalam. The husband often visited the house accompanied by a male staff. They behaved like a couple in front of her and other family members. As things became unbearable, she approached a family court at Thodupuzha seeking divorce in 2016. This is not an isolated case. Several men have been forced to live as closeted homosexuals as they not only fear social disgrace but also think it is criminal to mention that they are gay in the public.
