A live-in relationship between adults is deemed consensual and hence any s*xual relationship is also consensual. Hence it cannot come under Section 493. Courts have held different views on the subject. There can be difference between a gullible less educated or uneducated woman and an intelligent educated woman. There are also shrewd women who trap gullible men.

What are the facts? What is the context?

Live-in-relationship does not attract Sec 493 IPC. However, a particular incident may attract Sec 376 IPC depending on facts and circumstances of the case.
