SOME INTERESTING LEGAL UPDATES
(Women Must Read It)
Recently Delhi Court announced that premarital sex is immoral & no religion permits for it. While ruling on such cases the court remarked “In my opinion every act of Sexual Intercourse between two adults on the assurance of promise of marriage doesn’t become rape, if the assurance or promise is not fulfilled later on by the boy: the Judge said”.
After reading this judgment I really felt to write such article on my blog to spread such awareness among the women of my society. It is my humble request or advice to all prudent women of my nation to have at least some understanding of laws of their/our land. However by such decision we cannot conclude that “we should not fall in love/trust etc. etc… but it’s simply mean fall in love but not blindly, we should not ignore our rights and consequences of our acts. Your man should be a person with at least some common and general values. Law alone can/will not protect you in toto (entirely) you only have to make some laws for yourself to protect and maintain your own dignity, always be vigilant towards your rights and liabilities law alone can’t help to those who take advantage of it/or sleep over their rights.
Marriage Laws Amendment Bill 2010:-
The Union Cabinet has approved the introduction of new Bill “The Marriage Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2010 which amends the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 as well The Special Marriage Act, 1954. The extremely necessary change which has been brought up by such amendment is by bringing/introducing “Irretrievable Breakdown of marriage”- as another ground for Divorce. Few years back this ground was highly emphasized by the Division Bench consist of Justice Reddy, Justice Chinnnappa and Justice Misra in the case of Ms. Jordan Diengdeh V/s. S.S. Chopra.
