Centre: Same intercourse marriage towards our society, values

New Delhi, September 14

The Centre on Monday advised the Delhi High Court that marriage between similar intercourse {couples} was “not permissible” as it’s not recognised by “our laws, legal system, society and our values”.

The submission was made earlier than a Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan by Solicitor General (SG) Tushar Mehta throughout the listening to of a PIL searching for a declaration that very same intercourse marriages be recognised below the Hindu Marriage Act (HMA) and Special Marriage Act. Mehta opposed the aid sought within the petition saying “our laws, our legal system, our society and our values do not recognise a marriage, which is a sacrament, between same sex couples”.

He mentioned the plea to grant recognition to or allow registration of such marriages was “not permissible” for 2 causes — firstly, the petition was asking the court docket to legislate and secondly, any aid granted “would run contrary to various statutory provisions”. “Unless court does violence to various laws, this cannot be done,” he added. The counsel for the petitioner acknowledged that the affected individuals weren’t coming ahead as they feared reprisals and subsequently a PIL was most well-liked. The Bench listed the matter for additional listening to on October 21. — PTI
