Any couple who have sex to be considered married, Madras High Court rules
This means they would also need to divorce should they break up
Either of them could register the 'marriage' if they can prove they had sex
The legal registration could be done without the other persons approval
If an unmarried couple have sex they are considered husband and wife - and would have to divorce if they split, an Indian court has ruled.
When two people of legal age, 18 for a woman and 21 for a man, indulge in sexual gratification this should be seen as a 'an act of total commitment' and marriage by law, a judge at Madras High Court said.
The court said that the registering of a marriage as well as a wedding ceremony were only formalities to gain societys approval.
It also said that once two people have sex this becomes a total commitment with adherence to all consequences that may follow, including needing a decree of divorce should they want to sleep with someone else.
In addition, should either of the two wish to register the marriage they can have their marital status declared by a Family Court as long as they can supply proof of a sexual relationship.....

Anyone else accidentally read that as ‘Indiana’?
“Indian Court Recognizes Gay Polyandrous Marriages”
My college roommate would have had more wives than you could shake a stick at ...
that’s what i thought too... indiana
well, that’s kind of like a hasty common law marriage.
I guess I’m weird, but I actually find that young woman attractive. I saw her being interviewed on TV about a month ago.
Imagine if that were to apply here!”
There would be a whole lot of professional athletes with a harem.
Give her 10 years or so.
She is funny as all heck.
“Do you ever blink?”
She paused after reading the question stared straight into the camera and slowly closed and opened her eyes. “No.”
Glad you posted that, I think that’s one of the funniest memes ever!
there is a certain biblical precedent for that.
She is attractive and she has a great attitude about that particular meme. :)
I supposed that would also mean that anyone not having sex is legally divorced. Oh, this is going to be bad.
You get it ,
But moreso : 'Indian Court Recognizes mixed sex Polyandrous Marriages with multiple spouses'
Why cant that work?
A better idea is to discourage opposite sex couples from pro-creation without marriage and vice versa. And no same sex parents.
“Proof” of sex? Hmmm...photos? Used condoms?
I don’t see this as a negative, but then again my wife and I have only ever been with each other.
Catholic canon law once said something similar: which is why Henry VIII was committing a form of incest when he started chasing Mary Boleyn’s sister...
I saw on ‘The Tudors’ that he might have birddogged their mother as well! Harry was a real piece of work.
