    • ansNon-registration of marriage alone does not nullify married state. If the couple have lived together with intention and purpose and meaning of marriage then they are 'married' only. If the marriage was solomnized as per rites and rituals then, even if it was not registered it is a valid marriage in the eye of law and if one wants divorce, one has to approach the court of law. Remarriage without taking divorce is illegal and the second marriage is no marriage in the eyes of law also the person may be prosecuted for bigamy. So you still need to proceed with the divorce procedure.

    • ansin these circumstances if your marriage is valid according to the law of Nepal than you have to take divorce from your husband but in your circumstances if you have not left indian citizenship and resident of india you can file divorce petition in indian court.
