Newly divorced couple sign deal to share custody of their dogs

A couple in Mumbai struck a deal over the custody of their dogs as the two parted ways. The couple had been married for 18 years and had rescued and adopted two Indie pups during that time. But as they separated, they did consider the welfare of their pets.

The couple had filed for the divorce in February this year, but had clarity as to how to share the custody of their two dogs.

In the divorce deal the man won the primary custody of the dogs, while the woman can take the dogs, for a continuous period of one month thrice a year. The wife would get “visitation rights at convenient times with prior intimation”, according to a report.

The couple split as their lifestyles and habits did not match.
