The wife appealed against refusal of her petition for agility and for the absence of consent. It had been an arranged marriage, and she met H at the altar. She found him repugnant, and refused to consummate the marriage.
Held: Her appeal failed. The situation did not amount to lack of consent, and she had shown no condition making intercourse not possible.
W appealed against rejection of her petition for agility based first on the absence of consent and second for non-consummation. It had been an arranged marriage, and she did not meet H until the day of the marriage. She found him repugnant and refused to consummate the marriage.
