On 12th May, 2021, the Punjab and Haryana High Court while hearing the case of Ujjawal and another v. State of Haryana and others stated that a live-in couple cannot be granted with legal protection. In this particular case, a 18 year old girl was in a live-in relationship on her own will with a 21 year old boy. The petitioners stated that the couple was getting life threats from the side of the girl’s family and her relatives as they fled off from home and started staying together. The petitioners also mentioned that they should have the liberty to live on their own wish as they both are adults. The Court, to this, clearly mentioned that this petition cannot be granted as it will disturb the social community as a whole. Ujjwala, the girl and petitioner 1 is a resident of Paati Dhaman Sahib in Haryana Jind mentioned in the petition that she is of the notion and constant fear that her family and relatives might kill her partner, Manpreet, petitioner 2 who belongs from the same place as hers. The lawyer from the petitioners’ side stated before the Court that the couple should be given legal protection as per the petition as this type of relationship might put an end to the dowry demand nature in marriages.
