Live in relationships
Can first cusions brother and sister lived together in live in relationship in india? If Yes, Then what document required for proved it.
There are no laws prohibiting live in relationships.
Courts have recognised live-in relationships. The Supreme Court has held that, a live in relationship should be a ‘relationship in the nature of marriage’. Merely spending weekends together or a one night stand would not make it a ‘live in relationship’.
The court, in one case where it was looking into whether the live in partner is eligible for ‘alimony’, it held that to be given alimony, a live in relationship must comply with certain conditions:
1. The couple must hold themselves out to society as being akin to spouses;
2. They must be of legal age to marry; they must be otherwise qualified to enter into a legal marriage, including being unmarried;
3. They must have voluntarily cohabited for a significant period of time.
There are no documents as such needed to “certify” your live in relationship.
