“It hurts to have been in a loveless marriage”, Sachin Shroff opens up on divorce with Juhi Parmar


Television’s popular couple Juhi Parmar and Sachin Shroff parted ways after eight years of marriage. The duo filed for divorce on December 2017 before legally ending their marriage on the 6th of July, this year. The reason for this devastating split was given as incompatibility. The two decided to call it quits before the relationship got suffocating.

Post the divorce, the Kumkum actress had even revealed how she could never fall in love with Sachin and that their marriage seemed more like a compromise.

In an interview with a leading daily, according to Pinkvilla, she stated, “I knew Sachin before our marriage but there was no courtship period as such. He expressed his feelings and we got married immediately after that. I was not fully convinced personally but his love was the biggest driving force. I thought that I will fall in love with him but I still don’t know if I can label it as a love marriage. After few years of our marriage, our relationship hit rock bottom. It was difficult for me to accept that it’s not working out and I was just struggling to keep it going. Finally, I decided that it was best for both of us to separate and Aashka Goradia helped me and stood by my side.”

The effect had to be heart-breaking for Sachin who decided to break his silence explained how it was indeed lack of love that put their relationship apart. “The divorce happened with mutual consent, amicably and in a dignified manner. Unfortunately, and by Juhi’s own public admission, she was never in love with me. One-sided relationships are doomed from the beginning. It’s said, it’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. But the fact is that it hurts to have been in a loveless marriage. Nothing I did could make Juhi love me”, he said.

On asking if he would consider the idea of getting married again, he said, “I am more realistic now and I realise that love must be two-sided for a relationship to be successful. It’s too early for me to think about another relationship or marriage. I am still healing emotionally, as I was deeply in love. Let God decide what he has in store for me. I look forward to the rest of my life with optimism and happiness.”
