Married Woman In Live-In Relation- “Can’t Permit Such An Illegality”: Allahabad High Court Dismisses Protection Plea With 5k Cost

Noting that the Woman is already married and is in a live-in relationship with another man, the Allahabad High Court dismissed her protection plea with 5k cost. A Division Bench of Justice Kaushal Jayendra Thaker and Justice Dinesh Pathak observed that: “We fail to understand how such a petition be allowed permitting illegality in the society.” Petitioner no. 1 (woman) is a major and she was in a live-in relationship with Petitioner no. 2 (major Man). They, in their protection plea, sought direction in the nature of Mandamus commanding the respondents not to interfere and disturb their peaceful live-in-relation by adopting coercive measures. To this, the court observed: “Can we grant protection to the people who want to commit what can be said to be an act which is against the mandate of the Hindu Marriage Act. Article 21 of the Constitution of India may permit a person to have own liberty but the liberty has to be within the ambit of law which applies to them”
