If you have reunited through marriage then you again have to get divorce from your spouse from court.

If your spouse also agrees then you can again go for MCD.

The marriage was performed as per the hindu rites and rituals and therefore the marriage is valid. Registered marriage is only registration after marriage.

1) non registration does not affect validity of marriage 


2) if  marriage was done in temple as per traditional Vedic Hindu rites marriage would be valid 


3) obtain divorce by mutual consent

Marriage performed as per Hindu rites and customs is as good as registered marriage.

In other words this remarriage is very much valid.

Give some time to this remarriage to see if it can be worked out or not.

There s no guarantee that your new life partner would be better than your present one.

So have patience and go for mutual divorce once again only as a last resort.

         You follow all the Hindu rituals for the marriage, so it's valid.

         So again file mutual divorce petition again for divorce.

- If there is any proof of second marriage than yes, you shall have to file divorce.

- Second, the divorce has to be with mutual consent else will not be easy to contest and can create many other grounds for the proceedings against you.

As per Indian laws, registration of marriage is not mandatory and non-registration of marriage does not ipso-facto make the marriage void. 
Hence, you have the option of judicial separation or divorce with or without mutual consent.

Once the marriage is solemnised as per Hindu Custom and rituals it is a valid marriage previous divorce with same spouse will not be counted as such if you are unhappy you need to take divorce again.

the marriage is not registered but it is a valid marriage However, if you two are ready to separate and are sure that no one will file any case in future then in absence of any written record, you two may separate.

Yes, your marriage is valid.  Simpliciter because marriage is not registered doesn't make it invalid.  Registration is not mandatory.

Whether the subsequent marriage between the divorce couple is registered or not, since the marrige was solemnised as per Hindu religious rites and customs, it is recognised as legally valid marriage.

If you are not happy with this then you may, if this marriage is more than one year old, file a divorce petition on the grounds of cruelty if there is no agreement for mutual consent divorce.

  1. As per the information mentioned in the present query, makes it clear that you have got married second with each other, but this time in temple and haven’t yet registered it.
  2. I would like to inform you that the marriage is valid as registration of marriage is compulsory now, but failure to do that won’t mean that your marriage is invalid.
  3. You can get it registered now also as there is no limitation period to that effect.
  4. And yes, again you will have to seek divorce before the court of law otherwise the marriage can’t be dissolved.
