The High Court of Allahabad has remarked that it is not against a live-in relationship but cannot offer protection when one of the live-in partners is married.
The Court remarked this on Friday while giving police protection to petitioners who were of marriageable age & desired a live-in relationship, & eventually got married to each other.
On Friday, a young couple was given protection because they wanted to live together. During the time that the writ petition was pending, they married.
The petitioners came to court fearing that they would be harassed by their family members and would not be able to live in peace.
