Husband & Wife Equal Partners In A Marriage, Wife Best Suited To Be The Guardian Of A Husband In A Comatose Or Vegetative State: Bombay HC

The Bombay High Court held that in a marriage, husband and wife are equal partners and the wife is best suited to be the guardian of her husband who is lying in a vegetative state. Court directed all concerned authorities to accept her status as a guardian after she cited mounting medical expenses to gain access to her husband’s finances but the bank refused. Division bench of Justice Ujjal Bhuyan and Justice Milind Jadhav were hearing a writ petition filed by one Rajni Sharma, whose husband Hariom Sharma is in a state of comatose, a vegetative state, with no signs or prospect of revival. Hariom Sharma suffered cardiac arrest while jogging in November 2018 and has been in the said state ever since.
