Need help regarding live in relationship or maitri karar


Dear Friends,

For some personal reason, Me & my lady don't want to tie the knot or enter into relationship of marriage.

I & she both are HIndu & above 21 years. We both are unmarried. We are from Gujarat.

So, the thing i want to know is; can we just live together without marriage? Is it legal? Frankly speaking, if we do so then is it possible that some random police guy someday appears & can book me or her under some section or make us apart in the name of some law? ( asking you this question because you know this society & our family members are very much closed minded & orthodox people, so when they come to know that we are living without marriage.. i think, it's bound to happen)

Or for safety reasons, we should enter in some contract like Friendship agreement or Maitri Karaar?

What are the legal aspects & terms or conditions for the same? Also, please tell me What are the main pros & cons of each?

Thank you in advance!

Dear Couple,

You both are adults and can live together in Live-in relationship with each other. There is no Law which bars it in India and it's recognition is also been done by the Hon'ble Supreme Court Of India by confirming girl's right in Live-in relationships. Even the child's rights are also been recognised on same footing.,

Maitry Karar or Friendship Agreement has no legal sanctity except that you both willed to live together that's all, it will not amount to marriage with consent.

Please note, unless you do not do any unlawful act Police can not touch you simply by living together.

As said above, rights accrue to both the woman and children if born. You should make yourself aware of such rights.

1. Legally there is no bar in two persons of opposite s*x living together without being married to each other,

 

2. However, it is also a fact that ours is a orthodox soceity and as you rightly envisaged, policre may arrive & try to harass you or book you in various sections of different acts,

 

3. I agree with you that, to be in the safer side from the police over action, you should execute a Maitry Karar/Friendship Agreement to show to police, should they attempt to disturb you,

 

4. It should be a simple notarisedc agreement, inter alia, stating that you both are staying together willingly without performing marriage and are free to leave the relationship anytime without any notice.

The live-in relationship is not illegal in our country. the police if under the influence of some vested interests, try to harass or torture you, better approach the higher police officer or the court seeking protection. There is nothing wrong in such relationship, in fact so long this relationship is being maintained, everything will go on smoothly but once this is converted into marriage, the relationship will come to end very soon after that.
