The seven-letter word 'Divorce' derived from the Latin word 'divortium' which means separation, causes a person to be looked down upon and shamed for being bold and unapologetic about being single again. Divorce is considered to be a stigma, especially in India. A person is brutally judged on his/her character just because of a procedure which helps him/her end a relation, which is legal according to Section-13 B of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 and Section-28 of the Special Marriage Act,1954. Getting divorced does not mean a person is weak, rather it means that he/she has the audacity to stand up for himself/herself and to get out of a toxic relationship. The society should be supportive and equally respectful towards people seeking a divorce. Through this research paper, the researcher wants to take a closer step towards ending the big taboo in Indian society - the Divorce.
