I am a married Hindu woman in love with a married Muslim man. Can I marry my Muslim boyfriend after my divorce with my husband? My boyfriend doesn't want to divorce his first wife.

A. Since you are a Hindu and your current marriage is covered under Hindu Marriage Act 1955 (as amended til date), according to the said act,you cannot marry again until your spouse is living at the time second marriage if you have not received a judgment of dissolving your marriage.There fore, under the present sense, you cannot marry again until you obtain a decree of divorce under the Hindu Marriage Act 1955 (as amended till date). After you have received the decree of dissolution of your previous marriage then since the person whom you want to marry is not a Hindu under the definition of Hindus under the Hindu Marriage Act 1955 (as amended till date), your marriage will be covered under the Special Marriage Act 1954 (as amended till date) which covers marriage of people of India and all Indian nationals in foreign countries, irrespective of the religion or faith followed by either party. One of the basic conditions for marriage under this Act is: None of the parties intending to marry shall have a spouse living. Since, your Muslim boyfriend already has a spouse living at the time of marriage therefore the marriage performed under the Special Marriage Act will be null and void. As posted by you that your Muslim boyfriend does not want to divorce his first wife, the only available option with you is to convert your religion and become a Muslim. After converting your religion, then under the Muslim marriage law you can marry and will not face any problem for marrying.
