[Info] On legalising Live-InsViews: 98

7 Th Thinking Hat I don't understand the need for a law on live-in arrangements. If a man and woman do not want to follow any custom of any religion and still expect the world to treat them as husband and wife, they can declare their husband-wife status before a registrar of marriage and get their relationship legalised. If they did not care/bother to do so why at all the state should bother to 'regulate' their rights and liabilities?. Why perform such unsolicited services when there are so many other issues crying for attention? That reminds me of the barber in Tamil proverb who is so idle that he started shaving cats of their fur.

In any case the law grants marriage status for live-in arrangements only after a 'reasonable' tenure of the relationship. If all along this 'reasoanble' tenure they did not bother/want to register their marriage then they do not need a law to 'regulate' their affairs.

So long as no third party rights are involved the state has no business to enact such law. If the idea is to protect children born of such relationship or simillar such purpose, it is best accomplished by compeling registration of married status rather than legitimising live-in relationships. Existing law provides a direct and straight forward path. Making an alternate route is uncalled for.

Yes, there is no, law prohibiting live in relationships. This respects the freedom of individuals. But there should not be any law to 'regulate' live-in arrangements too. It is lack of respect ro people who follow law /custom.
