When either the husband or the wife has, without
reasonable excuse, withdrawn from the society of the other, the aggrieved party may apply,
by petition to the district court, for restitution of conjugal rights and the court, on being
satisfied of the truth of the statements made in such petition and that there is no legal
ground why the application should not be granted, may decree restitution of conjugal rights
Explanation:- Where a question arises whether there has been reasonable excuse for
withdrawal from the society, the burden of proving reasonable excuse shall be on the person
who has withdrawn from the society.
