marriage registration is compulsory?

The Supreme Court had asked states to make marriage registration compulsory - 

So what does this really mean? I understand it is compulsory in Maharashtra but then what happens to those in Maharashtra who have not yet registered their marriage? What is the implication?

Just like the case of a man's conversion to muslim religion if done only for the purpose of second marriage without seemingly following the religion, then such a marriage is not valid

Simillarly - if a woman undergoes marriage rituals and refuses to register the marriage and continues life as unmarried and in maiden name for all official purposes - then is the marriage considered valid? or not? And how does the compulsory registration of marriage affect in this case?  Also I was told that it would make a difference if the woman was a government servant in any capacity.  Is this true?

Now a days every couple to be registered their marriage, which is helpful in the future, but if it is not registered the marriage is always valid



Supreme court had ordered to make the marriage registration mandatery because it solves many legal problems like- to proof for legal heirness , proof for nominee , and most important to be considered as legal husband and wife on documents and a legal proof to get visa easily for foreign country and also it will restrain human traffickling .
