    New Delhi, Oct 21: Like married couples, live-in partners are not liable to pay maintenance if they stay together only for sexual reasons, the Supreme Court proclaimed the judgment on Thursday, Oct 21.

    Buzz up!
    "If a man has a keep whom he maintains financially, and uses mainly for sexual purpose and as a servant, it would not be a relationship in the nature of marriage," stated the court.


    The announcement came in a case, where a woman demanded alimony from a married man as they both were in live-in relationship for 14 years.

    However, the Tamil Nadu High court had ordered that the woman would be given maintenance against which the man had approached the Apex court.

    Finally, the Supreme Court on Oct 21 set aside the High Court's verdict and stated that the man is not liable to pay for maintenance of his live-in partner.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
