PCOS cannot be termed as impotency: Madras HC

The Judge also prompted that the present generation views marriage quite lightly.

The Madras High Court recently observed that Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS / PSOS) cannot be termed as impotency, as reported by Bar and Bench. The marital dispute in relation to which the High Court was approached also led Justice V Bhavani Subbaroyan to remark that the present generation does not take marriage seriously.


The case before the Court was tied to a marital case where the wife's PCOS condition was raised as a factor for strained relations.


"The term 'PSOS' by itself cannot be termed as 'impotency'. Impotency is different and unable to give birth to a child is different, owing to various physical and mental reasons," Justice Subbaroyan observed while addressing certain misconceptions surrounding the condition.


During the hearing, the Judge was also prompted to remark that the present generation views marriage quite lightly and that they file for divorce or attempt to 'break a marriage' for unimaginable trivial reasons.


The High Court made these observations while dealing with a plea moved by a woman to quash an original petition (OP) before the family court to annul a marriage.
