Live in Relationsips

 Hi all,

I have a small doubt about live in relationships, If i am not wrong then there is nothing illegal about two unmarried couples livin together. Right ? 

My question is if there is a police raid then how r the live -in partners going to avoid all the harrasment  and questions by police, before proving tat the girl is a descent one and not any call girl or etc..

I hope my question is clear to all.

 IF EVERY THING IS  DECENT, HOW CAN A POLICE GETS A DOUBT RELATION ? & WHO CAN A COMPLAINT REACHES P.S?. SOME 3RD PERSON ONLY CREATES ALL THESE THINGS.

SO IT IS THE PROBLEM OF SOCIETY, NOT THE POLICE.HENCE  STILL SO  MUCH TIME IS NEEDED TO BECOME WESTREN  COUNTRY STYLE .

live-in-relationship couple shall not be and cannot be harassed by the police; The police have the right to invade on  privacy of a lady and gent under the suppression of immoral Act,  only when  the s*xual favour is bought for money.  There is a detailed procedure laid down in the Act for conducting such a raid.  The police, most of the times, while raiding, ignore the procedure intentionally and the result is that the case fails.

If ill motivated police official wants to get advantage of "live-in-relationship", the appropriate course of action is to take legal action by pulling him into court.  If any police official has ill motives, he may even harass the husband and wife, who have been married as per their religious rites, for the time being, by putting false allegations against them such as finding them in compromising position in public place.   The remedy available to such married couple is equally available to the couple of "living in relationship".

Rent lease deed, ration card, telephone bills and at least one bank account will be on joint names showing the residential address and that will give legal authenticity for them to live together.

Dear, live in relations are not accepted in our society. this is the culture of western country. be a decent man ,not spoiled your indian culture, better you marry with the girl. other wise what will happen with the children out of the relation ' bastered or called by any other name.

Practically the attitude of police is not found descent in such cases though legally it is not wrong.

I do not agree with Adv. Mr. Subhas. Live-in relationship is the oldest form of marriage. Either in eastern or in western. Marriage was introduced latter on. Therefore marriage is modern and live in is old pattern of male - female unification. neither it is immoral,nor it is illigal. it is only a choice of a particular person. I consider live in as a better system, where nobody is encroching other's personal liberty. i personally going with live in relationship more than 12 years. i have a daughter. i am maintaining a family life. neighbours and police never disturbe me and i openly advocated in favour of live in relationship.

Mr. Nikhil you are right that there is nothing illigal. Where question of police raid is involved, it is for pimps, not for gentle couple. when you are bold to go on live in relationship then be bold to say to public it also. if you or anybody requires information about its ligality, may contact me for further details. The persons in a live in relationship is always free to go on marriage.

Police may come but you told them you are in live in relationship. They are entitled to search for immoral traficking. The act is to save the ladies from immoral trafiking. You may read the concerned act also. It is available in Internet.
