NEW DELHI: A man, separated from wife for last 17 years and repeatedly refused divorce by courts, was on Monday told by the Supreme Court that he may have to live with the rest of his life with a dead marriage as it appears that God willed it that way.

“If this is the will of God,” said a Bench comprising Justices B N Agrawal, G S Singhvi and J M Panchal dismissing a petition by Narinder Kumar Verma seeking divorce on the ground that the burden of a dead marriage imposed on him was violating his right to life guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution.

The Bench said it was helpless as Verma’s petition seeking divorce was rejected followed by dismissal of his review and curative petitions, which meant that the order of the apex court declining him divorce has attained finality.

Appearing for the petitioner, senior advocate S B Sanyal said the question before the apex court was not to go afresh into the rejection of the appeal, review and curative, but to consider whether a person be tied down to a dead marriage and not allowed to make a fresh beginning.

Explaining the fall-out of continuing a dead marriage, Sanyal said if the husband, who was taking care of his two daughters for nearly two decades, dies, then the wife would also take a share of his property without even contributing a bit into the grooming of the children.

    CHENNAI: A 58-year-old woman gave birth through assisted reproductive technology at a private hospital here on Monday.

    The birth was achieved through an intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection using egg from a donor.

    The couple, Vedam and his wife Selvamary from Ramnad district, have been married for 36 years. Vedam, 60, used to work as a machine operator in a private company in the city. The two were desperate for a baby and had tried all kinds of treatment until Selvamary achieved menopause 10 years ago.

    On reading about Aakash Fertility Centre in a newspaper, they approached the clinic and were told a baby was possible with a donor egg. Ten months later, the procedure was performed with sperm being injected into donor eggs, which were then grown in an incubator. Four days later, the eggs were transferred into Selvamary’s womb. Laser assisted hatching had been used on the eggs to improve chances of implantation.

    “However, after three months, one of the embryos was aborted naturally, but the other survived.

    On Tuesday morning, at 8 a.m., Selvamary gave birth to a healthy baby boy through a C-section,’’ said Dr Jeyarani Kamaraj, infertility specialist at the hospital.

    Selvamary is the oldest patient to have had a baby at the hospital, which had a similar case last year in which a 55-year-old woman gave birth to twins. “This has been made possible through our faith in God and in the doctors here. It has been a life-changing experience for me,’’ said Vedam.

    Dr Kamaraj said Selvamary had diabetes, which needed to be controlled carefully before attempting the treatment. “It is a wonderful milestone for us to have been able to give this couple such joy and fulfil a long-held dream of theirs,’’ he said.,+thanks+to+new+technology&artid=zllKfsm5pO4=&SectionID=lifojHIWDUU=&MainSectionID=lifojHIWDUU=&SEO=Aakash,+Fertility,+Centre+,+mother,+egg,+donor,+ba&SectionName=rSY%7C6QYp3kQ=
