About/from the judgment:

Coldness or lack of affection towards wife does not amount to cruelty by husband!


The appellant-wife has sought divorce on the ground of cruelty. Cruelty has not been defined exactly anywhere. The allegations of cruelty cannot be considered on trivial issues, rather the allegations should have the origin with reference to time, place and manner of committing such cruelty. General allegations of cruelty do not constitute cruelty in the eyes of law so as to grant decree on that premise.
