What are the prominent reasons for divorce in India? Is divorce the only solution most of the time?
One of the most prominent reasons cited is "cruelty".
Cruelty is an umbrella term which includes lot of things, including incompatibility.
Is divorce the only solution you ask?
Yes. Whenever there are other solutions, people take it.
I haven't come across a single case where people divorced even if there were other options.
Usually, when the couple senses trouble, they go to others. They involve their parents. They involve their friends. Therapists.
Divorce is the last option, when they have exhausted all others.
