A man after his second marriage took to the Supreme Court (SC) asking help with waiving off dues he owed to the first wife according to a report by Geo News.
According to the details, the man petitioned saying that after his second marriage, he was unable to afford both wives and therefore wanted to Supreme Court to allow him a relaxation by waiving off dues worth more than Rs. 1 million that he owed to his first wife.
The petition was heard by a three-member bench of the Supreme Court comprising of Justice Mushir Alam, Yayah Afridi and Justice Qazi Muhammad Amin Ahmed.
However, the judges did not seem to side with the man because of the odd nature of the petition and observed that it was his responsibility to fulfil what he owed to both wives.
“Why did you remarry if you cannot afford it?” questioned Justice Alam and the bench referred the matter to a trial court and disposed off the peititon based on withdrawal.
