Can a person file divorce Under Hindu Law within a year of marriage?

Under Section 14 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, no petition for divorce can be filed under any circumstance if the marriage has not completed 1 year of time span. But in abnormal or exceptional circumstances, The High Court is empowered to allow the concerned person to file a case before completion of one year.
