According to our Indian religion, marriage is a holy arrangement recognized by society. After performing a ceremony of "Saptapadi," which means "Saat Phere," around the sacred fire by the bride and groom, a marriage ceremony is solemnized. There are two forms of marriage in modern India, i.e., arranged marriage and love marriage.
In modern society, everyone can talk openly about divorce and judicial separation. In a general means of judicial separation means, if a person doesn't want to stay in married life and parties are disturbed from married life, they may request relief under the Hindu Marriage Act,1955.

Step 4: In the Trial Court
