The Madras High Court on Tuesday said a couple in a consensual sexual relationship will be considered 'married'.
The judgement came during an alimony hearing. The mother of two from Coimbatore was left by the man, who fathered her children. A court in Chennai had directed the man to pay maintenance for the children. However, the woman was denied alimony as she did not have valid documents of a marriage.
