MUMBAI: In a pathbreaking step towards “legalising” live-in relationships, the Maharashtra Cabinet on Wednesday approved a proposal suggesting a woman involved in such a relationship for a “reasonable period” should get the status of a wife. The proposal is based on the recommendations of the Justice Malimath Committee which said that if a man and a woman are living together as husband and wife for a reasonably long period, the man shall be deemed to have married the woman according to customary rights of either party.

The committee had also mooted that the definition of the word ‘wife’ under Section 125 of the CrPc be amended to include a woman living with the man like his wife for a reasonably long period.

The proposal was passed at a meeting of the State Cabinet. As per Section 125 of the CrPc, the woman would even be entitled to alimony, an official said. As CrPC is in the concurrent list of the Constitution, the Cabinet proposal would be sent to the Centre for obtaining President’s assent, the official said.
