    • ansThe marriage cannot be held to be invalid. However, the marriage could not be consummated due to reasons of impotency, then the provisions of Section 12 of the Hindu Marriage Act come into play.

      Advise your friend to first seek annulment of her previous marriage on the ground of non-cohabitation or she may seek divorce by mutual consent.
