Court annuls marriage with a history of beatings

A marriage which took place on the day that the bride turned 18 was annulled by the Family Court today after it heard how her 23-year-old husband used to get drunk and beat her up both before and after the marriage.

The court established that the man was not able to live with the wife and his drinking habit impeded the establishment of a community of love and life.

However, the woman too was unaware of the responsibilities of married life, as shown by the fact that despite her father's warnings, she had gone ahead with the marriage despite having been beaten up by her drunk would-be husband before the marriage.
