    Questions :- Suppose husband do adultery or cruelty and wife left home permanently. Court don’t give conjugal restitution as wife prove reason of seperation. Wife don’t want to give divorce and don’t want to live with husband also . Can husband ask for divorce based on this section ? As husband can’t marry another women to led happy life in long run or he have to live like vidur for whole life.
