she is your legally wedded wife. you would have taken a counter legal action at that material time. i think due do pressure of her parents she backed out from your relation ship.
you are still her legal husband. you may file a petition for Restitution of Conjugal rights against her if you have all the marriage proofs as you said.
for further enquiry you may consult me or any lawyer
Since you have strong evidence to prove that the marriage was out of free consent you need not worry about the complaint. You may file a Quashing Petition under S. 482 of Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 before the High Court, for the quashing of the FIR, on the ground that the act of kidnapping alleged in the complaint is false and no offence has been committed.
Regarding her second marriage, since yours is a valid marriage she cannot legally marry again without a divorce in the first marriage. Therefore, her second marriage would not be considered valid in the court of law.
You can also approach the court for recognising your marriage and for directing your wife to come back and live with you as husband-and-wife. For this, you may file a case under S. 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 for restitution of conjugal rights or marital rights. Since you have necessary proof to establish the validity of your marriage, the court may direct your wife to recognise her marriage with you and carry on her duties attributed with a married life.
If you wish you may instead seek divorce on the grounds of mental cruelty under S. 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955. Some of the grounds for mental cruelty may be:
- False case initiated against you and your friends by your own wife;
- Desertion by your wife for the sake of another man;
- Second marriage by your wife despite a legal and valid marriage with you.
As all these grounds can cause immense distress to an ordinary man, you may seek divorce on these grounds in addition to other reasonable grounds.
