Live-in relationships now legal in India

India a country of cultural values and ritual ceremonies cannot afford to plunge into western society. But since growing economy and people getting more and more aware, india finally has to step ahead and walk with the rest of the world by legalising Live-in relationship. Yeah it sounds absurd that a country like India would allow its citizens to do that, but its fact. the state cabinet on Wednesday gave its green signal to amend Section 125 of Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) which seeks to protect the pecuniary interests of the ‘other woman’. However, it would need the Centre’s stamp of approval to become a law.

The definition of the word “wife” would have to be change which is under section 125. The amendment done would be like a woman who believes in Live-in relationship or want to have polygamous relationships is legal. The state has proposed a reasonably long period for that woman to stay with the mate, but has not defined duration of that period specifically.

In a country like india this is one of the odd step taken, but still its a better one. Now i cannot wait to see all the mess happening at center (parliament) when this bill is proposed. I can see the opposition throwing chairs and lady MPs withdrawing support, talking about usual indian stuff.

But its a good start for the teenagers :P they do not have to hide out from the neighbours and can live freely like a normal society :)

cheers !!

  1. Live in relationship is the greatest threat to India. It destroys Indian family system. It cannot build healthy society by any means. Live in relationship says that “live for yourself, not for others”. It should not be legalised by any means. It is not the solution for domestic violence or dowry harrasment. Livein relationship does not have commitment or sacriment. It is built up the pillars of money, individualsm, liberty and fashionable life style. It is very fragile that it can break at any point of time. Religiously, morally and legally, it is a high-tech prostitution. If it is legalised, marriages will vanish soon and India will go to dogs! Ultimately India will become another America, where there is no proper culture or no proper family system.

Save Culture!

  3. ITS GREAT. THOSE WHO ARE IN REAL LOVE AND ARE OPPOSED FOR MARRIAGE BY PARENTS AND SOCITEY AND SHIT CULTURE CAN JUST LIVE IN SETTLE EARN MONEY AND THEN GET MARRIED. ITS COOL AND SIMPLY A STEP OF HUMANITY TO ALL PEOPLE WHO ARE IN LOVE. THIS IS THE TIME WHERE LOVE IS REALLY RESPECTED. HAT OFF TO JUDGE

  4. Yes, ramesh raju is right but every thing is to break something. and this is human right to get what he feels comfortable…..

  5. I dont know why people like Rameshraju are saying things like ‘it is a high-tech prostitution’, ‘India will become another America, where there is no proper culture or no proper family system’. I think he doesnt know that every country has their own culture and own moral values. And moreover, we told that indian culture is the greatest? If you start to judge cultures then you will be fasict like hitler one day. As far as Line-in relationship is concern, i think it doesnt matter. I dont say marriage is a bad idea, but you know whatm, you have love, trust and respect for you partner then, it doesnt matter whether you are married or in a live-in raltionship.

    Last comment for Mr Rameshraju will be, did he know that america has a huge no. of indians and still the hottest education and job destination for indians???

  6. in my opinion that living relation is not good for india and indian people. it`s destroy indian family and indian heart.it`s black mark of indian culture and also destroy the youngerst future.

  7. I think living realationship is not our culture.if this type relationship has not succed than many problem would be face on us. i want to say that only one thing man will never understant woman and woman will never understand man that’s the one thing man and woman will not understand himself.

  8. Those who support legalization of live in relations in India are short-sighted craps who are not able to forsee the threats involved therein. Relationships are not just about physical gratification. In India a relation is a bond not just between two people but a bunch of them called a family. Its only our culture and trends that have created the concept of a family. If these get eroded there will neither be a family nor any future. The generation to come will just be a like a ship without a radar.

  9. Unless the two individuals are mature enough to understand that live in relationship is not a game that one walks into one day and walks out of the other, I think it’s a pretty cool concept. It should be for convenience of the two individuals to “be together” , not for ease of getting out.
    Example- if there is family/society opposition, live in is a good work around, atleast you have LOVE – that’s the most important part.

  10. For every rule, there are people who follow it and there are others who try to violate or misuse it. Same goes for live-in relationships. If we have integrity, it will help us otherwise, there is no law to strengthen our integrity.
    Today’s youth is more liberal and open-minded, but due to old rigidities of society, people of different culture are not able to mix and live harmoniously in our country.
    So, I feel that live-in relationship is a hope to bring more acceptance and boost liberal sentiments in the country and make our country a truly democratic country …

  11. Did we hear of the oldest profession in the world ? Is it not true that ever since human memory is recorded, there have been instances of man seducing the other woman or the woman seducing the other man. The Indian values have been undergoing changes. Even 50 years ago, there was a joint family system, all living under one roof; nolonger so, the couple look for a seperate apartment even before getting married. With the internet culture overtaking all other cultures nothing is any more taboo. Moreover, there can be many, many genuine reasons that a couple want to stay together without creating encumberances. How many young wives are there in India with a child or two, whose legally married husband has deserted? Live-in will avoid atleast children and their misfortunes in most cases, and both will have an option open to rectify the mistake, if it was so. Both will not treat the other as their private property and will learn to respect each other and be more matured in the process. So, nothing is wrong. Anyway, no values are left in Indian society, politics, business and even religious activity except one value and that is HYPOCRISY.

  12. i have seen lots of people are against the fact that “live-in-relationship in India is legal now”. I want to ask them “WHY??”. They are taking it as a reason of break down of Indian family culture in future…but I want to ask them if the Indian family culture has been already broken down…coz, in early days we Indians used to stay in a joint family with our uncles, aunts and lots of cousins. dont you think this system has already broken down?? after that we used to live with our parents or parents in laws after marriage…but now most of the couple live separately after marriage. is it not an example of breaking down of indian culture?? We call this live in relationship a legel prostitution…is marriage not a legal prostitution?? In live in relationship people atleast know each othef and they have some feelings for each other..but sometimes in marriage people does not know each other. As we believe in “HAPPY MARRIED LIFE” we used to stay with our spouse after lots of difficulties. and the child faces the worst thing in his life. At least the couple have a choice to understand that they are compatible or not and hence a third person will not be the victim of their difficulties…I have faced these problems and for what I left my house..If my parents had taken a decision like this..may be my life would me much better than this
