She is 16 years old girls. we had been in love for 3 month together and now due to some misunderstanding and is subject to the behaviour of the girl I don’t have any physical relation with us. only chat with us, … I feel personally that if I marry that girl ..we are going to leave a happy life. So I decided to broke up the relationship… but the girl is not ready to leave me alone.

She is trying to force me to get married But still, I am not willing to marry her. So I stopped the wedding preparations. Now the girl is waiting to file a complaint against me for not getting married to her. I am bit afraid… Please advise how to come out from this problem.

You should breakdown relation with a girlfriend. According to section 5 of the Hindu Marriage Act, marriage can be solemnized between two Hindu if at the time of marriage bridegroom has completed the age of 21 years and bride has completed the age of 18 years. Your girlfriend is below the age of 18 years so her petition for marriage shall not be sustained in the court and it is not maintainable.

When a marriage has solemnized in contravention of above-mentioned condition hence parties have committed an offence which is punishable under section 18 of Hindu Marriage Act with rigorous imprisonment up to 2 years and fine up to 1lakh or with both, but marriage shall be deemed valid.

Above mention provision is not applicable in case marriage is about to solemnize. She has no right to file any petition to seek an order of solemnization of marriage. You should convince her that your marriage cannot be possible due to legal hurdle. Turn her calm down and try to escape yourself from this web.
