Restitution of Conjugal Rights


Restitution of conjugal rights is a petition filed by a husband or wife as a remedy to restore their rights to cohabiting with the other spouse. The guilty party can be directed to live with the aggrieved party through a decree of restitution of conjugal rights.

The attachment of property can be used to enforce the decree of restitution of conjugal rights and the court may also punish him/her for contempt of court if the party complained against still does not comply. But under no conditions, the court can force the erring spouse to consummate the marriage.

There are three important requisites to be fulfilled:

  • Spouses must not be staying together.
  • Withdrawal of a party from the other must have no reasonable ground for such withdrawal.
  • The aggrieved party must apply for restitution of conjugal rights.
