Supreme Court does not promote live-in relationships: Allahabad High Court

The Allahabad High Court dismissing a writ petition, to give protection to an inter-faith live-in couple from their families, held that the writ jurisdiction is an extraordinary jurisdiction not made to resolve disputes between two private parties. The Court further stated “Law traditionally has been biased in favour of marriage. It reserves many rights and privileges to married persons to preserve and encourage the institution of marriage. The Supreme Court is simply accepting a social reality and it has no intention to unravel the fabric of Indian family life.
