Taliq (men dissolving marriage) revised in India

The court said it would examine whether the practice known as "triple talaq" was fundamental to the religion.
India is one of a handful of countries in the world where a Muslim man can divorce his wife in minutes by saying the word talaq (divorce) three times. Unquote.

The article also says, "..Many Muslim groups have opposed the court's intervention in their religious matters.."
People should keep their religious marriage separate from their legal and personal marriages. The three are different in essence. Religious marriage only applies to those who are religious. People may be legally married but not be personally committed or monogamous with each other.

Better still, I suggest the state should treat everyone as individuals and not have any legislation relating to marriage at all. We should all make wills at 18 and that should be simple and cheap to do and to notarise.
