Sex before marriage is illegal ? I dont understand why our society thinks that not being virgin will decide our Character, if we are virgin then we are carrying pure identity, if we are not we are to be called as characterless. Why ???
Just because we had a relationship or because we are adults just because we are not carrying any legal identity of marriage doesn’t mean having sex makes us characterless…
A Character cannot be defined by his/her being virgin , its to be shown by their thoughts , actions, and there so called narrow mind, its not there fault because our parents have never talk with us about it openly… because if they do it becomes shameful for them.
If the two consenting adults indulge in sexual intercourse before marriage, with each other or someone else who is not married , then its not at all ILLEGAL OR an offence punishable under Indian Law, also the consent given must be voluntary and its completely a matter of personal choice , for some people its moral and for some people its not.
Sex before marriage is also not a valid ground for Divorce in India
SUPREME COURT – THE APEX COURT ITSELF SAYS IN ITS JUDGEMENT THAT PRE- MARITAL SEX IS NOT AN OFFENCE OR CRIME
WHAT ABOUT POLICE ARREST ?
The police officers raid the hotels and arrest bachelors and maidens for having sex even if its not an offence in Indian law. They are only take the advantage of the situation. They cannot protest as it will bring them a bad name in this conservative society.
