Can an invalid Hindu/Christian marriage be separated without legal procedures
Hello Respected Sirs,
My wife and me want to separate with mutual agreement, and unconditionally. When I asked my wife for the legal procedures, she advised me that there's no need of any legal procedures and we can leave each other as if we were never married, and that she'll never interfere in my life in future.
According to her, this may be possible since she is Christian and I am a Hindu, and we were married through "7 pheres", and our marriage was never registered, so it's an invalid marriage by itself.
However, my question is if suppose I agree to her advise and separate without any legal procedures, and afterwards I go for a second marriage and then my first wife comes back with an evil intent, then how will the law respond to this situation. Will I be punishable under law?
Your expert suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
