लिव्ह इन रिलेशनशिपला' मंजुरी

कायदेशीररीत्या विवाह न करता पत्नी म्हणून पुरुषासमवेत एकत्र राहणाऱ्या कोणत्याही महिलेला यापुढे पत्नीचा दर्जा देण्याच्या भारतीय दंड संहितेतील प्रस्तावित तरतुदीस बुधवारी राज्य मंत्रिमंडळाच्या बैठकीत मान्यता देण्यात आली आहे.

एखादी स्त्री पुरुषासमवेत त्याची पत्नी म्हणून "लिव्ह इन रिलेशनशिप' या नात्याने अथवा विवाहबाह्य संबंध ठेवून ठराविक कालावधीसाठी राहत असेल, तर त्या स्त्रीचा "पत्नी'च्या व्याख्येत समावेश करण्यात येईल आणि त्या स्त्रीला पोटगी मिळण्याचा कायदेशीर अधिकार मिळू शकेल, अशी सुधारणा भारतीय दंड संहितेमध्ये करण्यास राज्य मंत्रिमंडळाच्या झालेल्या बैठकीत मंजुरी देण्यात आली आहे.

राज्य सरकारने घेतलेल्या या निर्णयामुळे महाराष्ट्राच्या पुरोगामी विचारसरणीवर शिक्कामोर्तब होते, असे वाटते का?

I think this is a good step ahead. Unmarried ADULTS should be able to do this. They should marry ONLY if both of them want to rear children.

producing and rearing a healthy child should be the sole purpose of marriage. everything else could come without the knot.

I do not support this. This gives a clear path for men to ignore the divorce case and still live happily with the other woman. This may be justice to other woman, but what about his first wife and children?
It gives him full opportunity to run away from his responsibilities. And Since the legal duration of this live-in-relationship is not decided, its going to be a way of legal Polygamy for many.

This is not acceptable. If they want to have a leave in relationship without the knot then they should bear the consequnces. Do not make this unetheical relationships legal

"लिविंग टूगेदर" ही जरी कल्पना परिस्थितिला अनुसरून करू दिली असली तरी, कांग्रेस सरकार आता केवळ पुन्हस्च निवडून येवू इच्छित आहे, आणि केवळ त्या साठी हा खुश्किचा मार्ग कांग्रेस सरकारनी काढला आहे. "लिविंग टूगेदर" या गोष्टीचा महाराष्ट्रात मोठ्या प्रमाणात दूर उपयोग केला जाणार, कारण ह्या गोष्टिचा जोरात वापर तो करतील ते वेषा बाजार करणारी मंडली, "लिविंग टूगेदर" या मार्गाने कांग्रेस सरकार "वोट बैंक" जागृत करू इछिते. कारपोरेट वर्ल्ड मधे जरी "लिविंग टूगेदर" ही गोष्ट प्रचिलित असली तरी पूर्ण महाराष्ट्राला ह्या विक्रुतित टाकण्याचा अधिकार सरकारला नाही, आणि सकाळ वृत्त पत्रानी अयुषात एकदातरी "समतोल" लेख व "समतोल विचार सरणी" च्या "कमेंट्स" टिपण्णीना आपल्या वृत्त पर्त्रत व ब्लॉग वर "वाव" द्यायला हवा...

एकतर्फी कांग्रेस वादी विचार सरणी सोडावी आता, आजचा जगात वृत्त पत्र बर्याच प्रमाणात कायदे घडवतात त्याचा विचार असू द्यावा...

This law is just to protect women who are living a married life without having any legal proof.

Live-in relationship is not very common in India. However, there are people who end up living together but cannot get married due to myriad reasons (death threats from parents, different religions, other commitments etc).

Live-in relationship is purely personal matter between two persons of opposite sex. It is obvious such a couple is enough matured and aware of consiquences of maintaining such a relationship.
In view of this fact the question remains what Government has business in approving such relationship and making it legal. Suppose Goverment declares such a relationship as illegal, can it really stop such relationship? Answer is - certainly NO
Therefore, it is felt that making such a decision and approving it lagally do not have any jestification.

Niranjan said...

I think this decision will cause men shy away from the live-in relationships which I think is good for traditional marriage system. People want to be live-in relationship simply because they do not want commitments and undue consequesnces. Now if a man has to pay alimony to his partner even if it is just a live-in relationship, why would he be in such a relationship in the first place. So this is a good news for so called protagonist of our culture and values.

This is very wrong . think about kids. there is no 'sanskar', no respect, nothing. our indian sanskriti is very good. don't give this permission. first you think about career and then other things.

Josho said...

First of all ,don't think marriage as a holy/divine thing.It was just an arrangegemen for men and women to live with a mate.
Our mind has been trained to conform .Suppose I am married and my spouse has illicit relation then ,either our relation will be broken or it will be just an compromise for childen and so called family status.
In live in relationship you can enjoy life like marriage and if you want to depart then you can depart without any catharsis like situtation and there will not be concept of adultery.
We are only male or female ,husband and wife is coercion on nature.

No legal protection/rights should be given to the women in the live-in relationship because they enter in this relationship out of their own sheer choice and risk. If they want legal protection then they should enter in wed lock. They know very well that this relationship can be easily broken that's why then enter in this relationship.

GOOG said...

NO!

It supports a chunk of those cunning women (believe me there are literally lakhs of such women in India) who have been harassing their husbands and his families- extortion as a mean to gain money. With this law, they can live with another male. What about her kids? in the court she uses her kids to get more maintenance and law will eventually help mess the lives if such children because she will never let her husband have the custody of kids.
There has been rampant increase in such abuse of pro-women law (the law as such is right like in any other country) for the monetary reasons. The parents use their daughters as a 'cash-cow' to extort her husband.
The other side- her husband can also be in live-in-relationship with another women. The law however is ignoring children. It will promote adultery making it more and more socially acceptable. Its anti-social. Its a law for sex-starved male and females. Our nation is on a road to an insecure place for raising a family. "The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children."
--Dietrich Bonhoeffer

-When I came to USA in 1995 I was confused where to raise my family. However now I am happy that my kids are being raised here rather than in an insecure place which promotes immorality. Adultery is THE most common cause of divorce here in USA - but the laws in US help the couple separate unlike in India. An average US citizen is moral, ethical and a considerate parent. I doubt that about Indians living in metros and the fast-changing small towns in India.

The said law which will be implimented should be implimented for life time.Present government will impliment the law and the coming government of any other party after the elections will dissolve the law,it should not happen! By he implimentation of this law many such type good relations will be protected by law.
The couples coming under this livein relationship,specifically the men should not turn faces to the responsibilities of the family and the childrens they have.He must have to fulfill now the responsibilities towards the both.
Giving protection to this relationship will give a break towards the adverse effects. I give support to this law.

It seems that sakal as well as Pune pratibimb blogs are stuck at same "live-in relationship" subject for >a week,during which few good as well as bad newsworthy subjects have been ignored.

Time to move ahead & also seek opinions of bloggers about topics of the day in stead of putting few inconvenient ones under the carpet.

Increasing load shedding,total apathy to terrorism's effects/victims,increasing ambit of reservations,CYGs & the good show being put up etc could have been few such topics.

आजच्या गतीमान युगात थांबून चालणार नाही म्हणून सकाळने गतीशील व्हावे व कुणालाहि अभय न देता राजकारणातील गैरसोयीचे पण सत्य मुद्देपण जनतेसमोर आणावे तसेच सध्याच्या मिडियाच्या पक्षपातीपणाबद्दल पण लिहून प्रतिक्रिया मागवाव्या तरच ख-या अर्थाने सकाळ आपला निपक्षपातीपणा सिद्ध करू शकेल!

How it matters which political party government comes in power in Maharashtra. All are "Godbole" (sweet talkers) of no use to the common people. Top to bottom the government that includes the ministers, politicians, bureaucrats - all are sailing in the same boat of corruption. Who cares for the country and the people - My Foot ' appears to be the answer. So, its Sheikh apna apna dekh culture.

पाश्चात्य संस्क्रुतीचे अंधानुकरण करुण काहीही साध्य होणार नाही. भारतीय संस्क्रुतीला आजही जगात मान आहे. मी स्वतः परदेशात रहात असल्यामुळे मी हे सांगू शकतो की, आपली संस्क्रुती कधीही बरी. काही क्षेत्रात आपण जरुर त्यांचे अनुकरण करावे. पण ह्या " living together" नवीन प्रकारामुळे जे नवीन प्रश्न, ज्या नवीन समस्या उद्भवतील त्याच्याकडे लक्ष दिले पाहीजे. narrow minded विचार करुन किंवा फक्त आपल्यापुरता विचार करुन जमणार नाही. ही संकल्पना सर्वजण मान्य करत नाहीत त्यामुळे आज जर दोघे लग्न न करता परदेशात एकत्र राहीले तर कुणी काहीही बोलणार नाही कारण बाहेरील देशात कुणाला कुणाबद्दल जास्त आपुलकी नसते. जो-तो आपापल्या विश्वात रमलेला असतो. पण भारतात जर हे घडले तर त्याला समाजात मान मिळणार नाही. लोकांचा त्या जोडप्याकडे पाहण्याचा द्रुष्टीकोन बदलणार. तुम्हाला जर एकत्रच रहायचे असेल तर लग्न करायला काय हरकत आहे. लग्नासारख्या पवीत्र बंधनापासून दुर जाऊन काय मिळणार आहे? " live-in together" ही संकल्पनाच मुळी न पटणारी आहे. ज्याने हे खुळ बाजारात आणले आहे. त्याने एकदा बाहेरील वोश्वात डोकाऊन पाहावे म्हणजे कळेल की लग्नाला किती महत्व आहे आणि लग्नामुळे काय-काय साध्य होते.

Whats difference between Randigiri and live in relation ship?
I think next step of government is legalize the prostitution , publish rate card for tourism. They never think about the problem the child born from this relation going to face or what happen to existing married life.
These ministers never responsible toward public. Now onward minister's or high profile person thinks 'Bhai kal kahi pay alag ladki ya ladkay kay sath ek room may dekhay gaye to problem nahi ab to sub kuch legalise kar diya hay' that my right or that's important to prevent AIDS.
