Live-in relationships promoting promiscuity: Madhya Pradesh high court | Latest News India

In this explicit case, after the live-in relationship fell by, the accused man was threatening the lady and the household of a person with whom the lady’s marriage was mounted. His threatening resulted within the eventual cancellation of the wedding. 

The Madhya Pradesh high court has noticed that live-in relationships are giving rise to sexual offences and promoting promiscuity because it rejected the anticipatory bail of a 25-year-old man who was accused of raping a girl. The man was in a live-in relationship with the complainant who underwent two pressured abortions. The relationship fell aside and the lady acquired engaged to another person. But the person began blackmailing her resulting in the cancellation of the wedding. The accused despatched video messages to the long run in-laws of the lady the place he threatened he would commit suicide and the household (the place the lady was purported to get married) would even be held liable for the suicide.

Justice Subodh Abhyankar of the Indore bench of the high court stated that is the bane of live-in relationships. “Taking notice of the spurt of such offences in current occasions arising out of live-in relationships, this court is pressured to look at that the bane of live-in-relationship is a by-product of Constitutional assure as supplied below Art. 21, engulfing the ethos of Indian society, and promoting lascivious behaviour, giving additional rise to sexual offences,” the bench observed.

“Those who wanted to exploit this freedom are quick to embrace it, but are totally ignorant that it has its own limitations, and does not confer any right on any of the partners to such relationship,” the court stated.

In an earlier judgment, Justice Subodh Abhyankar-led bench had earlier stated single ladies don’t bask in carnal actions with a boy only for enjoyable, except she is promised marriage by the boy. “…barring some exceptions…it has not yet reached such level (advance or lower) of civilization where unmarried girls, regardless of their religion, indulge in carnal activities with boys just for the fun of it, unless the same is backed by some future promise/assurance of marriage and to prove her point, it is not necessary every time for a victim to try to commit suicide as in the present case,” the court had noticed.
