LIVE IN TOGETHER RELATIONSHIP

MAHARASHTRA GOVT HAS DECIDED TO AMEND 125 CR.P.C TO INCLUDE WOMEN IN LIVE IN RELATIONSHIP.DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ACT HAS ALREADY PROVIDED PROTECTION TO SUCH WOMEN. NOW MY QUESTION FOR DEBATE IS CAN WE LEGALISE SUCH RELATIONSHIP AS MARRIAGE AND WHAT ARE THE COSEQUENCES OF LIVE IN RELATIONSHIP IN CASE OF LEGITIMACY, SUCCESSUION ETC ????????????????

more moral decay

Sanjeev Dudhat (Lawyer)     17 October 2008

State has no business of moral policing. The decay is there very much in society a b-initio. it is only to protect women from very further exploitation that live-in-relationship is being given due cognisance. it will be incorrect to criticise the State for moral decadance.

N.K.Assumi (Advocate)     17 October 2008

I concur with Sanjeev. Morality or its decay has no place in legislation. As long as it is within the competence of the legislature to enact, it can come out with the Legislation. It may effect some personal laws, but that is no ground to challenge the Legislation. What the Maharsthra Government is contemplating is in the best interest of the Women who are often exploited by men. Time has changed and so too our law should keep pace with the changing times.

Living in' relationships are to a certian extent of the stupid practices adopted in our institution of marriage. We have progressed from type writers to laptops, coins to smart cards... but Our attitude towards marriage never changed.



Women has graduated as CEO's of MNC's from a home maker. Men do drive a BMW  and wear an Armani, but the wife in their dream still is a saree clad women with bindi in the fore head, may be a burkha, children cinging to her hands etc. He is yet to have this digested that the car that speeds at 140kmph can have a women in the driving seat.



Living-in relation is mostly a decision made by the new generation women. Men were always ready for a "liability free" s*x life. But for women, it is a bold step she is taking or a kind of challenge she is making on the male section who still fancy to live on the money of her father, fancy to get a slave at home and bed, fancy to keep a Sati-savitri at home.



Women today understand her more. She know her wants and desires. Men will no longer be able to hide their inability or weakness under the "sanctity" cover of marriage.



Living-in, is a challenge and the bold one do survive. You might see them desperate and broken after few years. But their life is much better than the prisoners of marriage.
