For example, if there is evidence of constant physical abuse by one party, it is likely that that such permission will be granted. A victim of abuse should not have to constantly suffer in an oppressive marriage.
Another example would be if the wife is carrying the child of another man. It may be exceptionally difficult for the husband to continue a marriage with the wife, who wishes to marry the father of the child.
Everyone’s case is special and unique and there is no hard and fast rule. We recommend seeking legal advice to understand the options available.
