Many more people commit suicide due to bad marriage than divorce, NCRB data shows

NCRB's Accidental Deaths and Suicides in India report shows there were over 37,000 suicides for marriage-related reasons from 2016 to 2020, but only 7% of them were due to divorce.

Of the 7,239 marriage-related suicides in 2020, about 2,018 (26 per cent) were because of dowry related issues. Of these, 1,749 were women, and 249 were men. The previous year, the total number of dowry related deaths was 3 per cent lower, at 1,956.

In contrast, other marriage-related causes for suicide — such as divorce or extra-marital affairs, for example — claimed the lives of more men than women.

In 2020, divorce pushed 287 men to commit suicide, which is a little more than the number of women — 264. In the case of extramarital affairs, 724 men committed suicide, while the number for women was 636, or 14 per cent less.

Pre-matrimonial due diligence investigations and post-matrimonial dispute investigations are increasingly being handled by professional investigators. Earlier, parents, friends or family members used to verify the credibility and authenticity of the prospective bride/groom from their informal sources before deciding on a nuptial. However, the scenario is fast changing with matrimonial alliances being prone to forgery, cheating and legal disputes, cost of which is very high and damage irreparable. 

Therefore, to ensure the right alliance, many parents of the bride/groom and the prospective partners are hiring professional investigators to conduct due diligence. One key reason behind the rise of matrimonial investigations is the onset of online dating generation and social media interactions, which come with their own merits and demerits.

  • Many issues are lawfully considered as civil cases where questions between two parties are involved and police can not afford to give all time to that.
  • Minor violations frequently will not draw in critical police consideration, basically as the police need to give their thoughtfulness regarding high criticality matters. A private investigator can assist law enforcement in such cases, or can be hired by the client to discreetly extract crucial evidence which can be very useful at the stage of investigation and later during court trial.
  • There are certain matters in which a private investigator is more experienced and thinks more critically like personal or matrimonial disputes, financial asset trace, cyber forensics, digital forensics etc.
  • Some companies have their own team of private investigators to examine and investigate the internal security of the company. They are hired for this reason and also they have good knowledge of the company thereby making investigation procedure time efficient.
  • Some people do not feel comfortable sharing every detail with the law enforcement for want of privacy, time or to avoid getting involved in unwanted situations.
  • There are some matters that are not punishable by the law and not acknowledged for the same. These are the cases where people need investigators for their own closure like in the case of infidelity and family matters.
