No fundamental to same-sex marriage, says Centre
NEW DELHI: The Centre on Thursday told the Delhi high court that there is no fundamental to seek recognition for same-sex marriage, cming that marriage in India is not just a union of two individuals, but an institution between a biological man and woman as a family unit.
“Family issues are far beyond mere recognition and registration of marriage between people of the same gender. Same sex individuals living together as partners and having a sexual relationship (which is decriminalised now) is not comparable with the Indian family unit concept of a husband, a wife and children, which necessarily presuppose a biological man as a ‘husband’, a biological woman as a ‘wife’ and the children born out of the union between the two,” the go nment stated in an affidavit, while opposing a clutch of petitions filed by same-sex couples seeking legal recognition for their choice of partner.
Urging the court to dismiss the petitions, it said any interpretation other than treating a husband as a biological man and a wife as a biological woman will make all statutory provisions unworkable. The Centre said that marriage is essentially a socially recognised union of two individuals, which is governed either by uncodified personal laws or codified statutory laws, while cming that any judicial interference will cause “complete havoc with the delicate bnce of personal laws”.
The go nment also cited the Supreme Court judgment decriminalising homosexuality, contending that it only decriminalised a particular behaviour, but didn’t legitimise it.

If 2 girls or 2 guys love each other, what is wrong if they get married? Many nations have legalized same sex marriages. But Indian mentality is medieval, as they first never accepted intercaste marriages or relationships, and now they will never accept if a girl is in relationship with another girl or guy with another guy. Homosexuality is not a mental or a psychological disorder. It is natural and there is nothing wrong in that.
This is pathetic approach by the central govt. when the whole world is accepting same sex mairrage, India is going ancient. Family is about LOVE but not that everyone understands this???
If court has made same gender sex legal then not sure what is the problem here. its understandable that supreme court is trying to maintain the cultural aspect of the country. but with world evolving and rules must also change. LGBT society are no harm to any individual
Let individuals decide what they want and how they want to live....
SC has decriminalised same sex relationship only to avoid unnecessary harassment to such persons. But still it remains a sin ag inst nature and there cannot be a legalised marriage between people of same sex.
BJP saved our Bharat Heritage and culture. Long live BJP.
Sad day for India. Hopefully we have better go nments in the future
excellent decision by the Govt ; same-sex marriages should not recognized as it will lead to social and financial problems; if such marriages are allowed, next peacefools will ask that marriage with goats & camels shud also be recognized
