Delhi HC: A woman is free to live with whoever she wishes.



An adult woman is free to live wherever and with whoever she wishes, the Delhi High court has ruled, as they have reunited a twenty-year-old woman with her husband.

The ruling by a bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rajish Bhatnagar comes at a time when moves by UP and other ruling party government states to enact laws on "love jihad" have sparked a debate on the freedom and right of an adult to marry someone that person chooses.

The HC directed that the woman in question should be permitted to reside with Babloo, brushing aside the allegations of her family of the woman being minor and kidnapped. The order by Delhi HC came after Allahabad HC passed out rules in favour of a woman's free will to choose her husband.
