According to the Madras High Court if a couple indulges in premarital sex it will be considered marriage! 

This judgement was given because of a couple who had not married but had two children. In order to make the man pay a monthly maintenance of Rs 500 to the woman, this judgement had to be passed where in a couple who lives together and has kids should be considered a "married" couple.

But this does not mean that just because a couple have sex before marriage that they are automatically married! By that logic more than half the population of this country are married! Do you agree?

Very difficult to comment without reading the full text of the judgement. Kamal Hasan married his spouse after fathering two daughters. If a man and woman stays together, have sex and children though they are not married as per the rituals, such cases can be treated as married. This cannot apply for the unmarried casual sex partners.

Though it’s not completely cleared from the news as media always makes news flashy, but if you see the Legal Definition of “Live-in” relationship, this situation is similar and Judge’s verdict is in terms of protecting her right as she was living with the guy from quite a long time (based on my understanding about this news). Even police added domestic violence charge in Suraj Pancholi’s (Jai Khan) case as they were also living together. “Pre-marital Sex” and “Living Together” are two different scenario and law only acts when case opened.

All these complications are coming because more and more couple are indulging in so called Live-in relationship without really knowing what it is, this has been taken for a fun, since there is no law which stops or controls these, court would have ordered this, here in our country whether it is relationship or a new product, the trend has been try and then use, i think this has got extended to the relationship also.

There is "Live-in" relationship law in Indian Penal Court to protect rights of people under that relation.

Agree. Premarital sex is not marriage. Why does india considers premarital sex as taboo. We are in 21st century and land of kamasutra... i think our country should grow up... consensual sex between 2 adults is fine.... why big deal about it
