In Garb Of Protection Petition, Live-In Couple Seek Seal Of Approval On Socially And Morally Unacceptable Relationship: P&H High Court

Punjab and Haryana High Court while hearing a protection appeal of a live-in-couple had rejected the same by stating that, seeking of approval of live-in-relationship is morally correct but socially not accepted and no protection can be granted. The petitioner couple had stated that, they are living together in a live-in-relationship but planning to get married soon. The petitioners were expecting a threat from the girl’s family and that’s why they had filed a protection application.

Few days back there was a same petition in Punjab and Haryana High Court which was rejected by Justice Anil Kshetarpal by stating that, if protection is granted to a live-in-couple from their relatives then it could disturb the society.

On 10th March, 2021, Punjab and Haryana High Court did not approve the new concept of live-in-relationship where the parties used to state that their relationship is not a marital relationship. The Bench of Justice Arvind Singh Sangwan had held that, claiming specifically that it is not a "Marital Relationship" is an abuse of the legal process because it cannot be legally tolerated in society.

In this case, Gulza Kumari Vs. State of Punjab, Justice HS Madaan was hearing a protection appeal of a petitioner couple who were living together as a live-in-relationship. The Court had held that, as seeking of approval of live-in-relation though morally correct but socially it is not acceptable hence, the Court had dismissed the prayer for protection.
