I was in love with a man for 8 years. He cheated on me and got married. We patched up in 6 months and he promised to leave his wife and marry me. Even after 9 years he has not left her and now he wants to leave me. Can I file a case on my ex-boyfriend who has married another lady?

Asked from: Tamil Nadu

You cannot file any case against your ex-boyfriend. He did nothing wrong and the friendship between him and you was consensual. As per the question, it does not seem that there was any kind of exploitation on his part. Your ex-boyfriend has not cheated on you because he did not promise you to marry.

Your relationship was not based on the false promise of marriage. Thus, he did not commit any offence. Every person has the right to choose his life partner. It is a fundamental right.

If there was no deception there was no offence. Therefore, you cannot file a case on your ex-boyfriend who has married another lady?

His parents and my boyfriend tourcher me everyday to get married . But my parents don’t want us to get married soon. In the end my boyfriend decided to marry another girl without informing me. He blocked me from social websites and he decided that one of our common friends told me that he is now married don’t spoil his life. I am mentally upset with all this. I just hope that in the future he won’t be able to spoil my life. 

Asked from : Punjab

You should lodge an FIR against him for the offence of criminal intimidation. He has no right to interfere in your decision of marriage. Your relationship was consensual. He should not assume that the girl is ready for marriage. 

Any kind of pursuance shall constitute an offence of stalking. In these circumstances you should immediately lodge an FIR.
