Live-in relationship not valid if one of the partners is married: Madras High Court

The Court passed the order while hearing an appeal filed by one P Jayachandran challenging the order of a trial court.

Jayachandran and one Margarette Arulmozhi were living together without any marriage.

Jayachandran was already married to another woman and the couple had five children. While they did not maintain any relationship, they were not divorced as per law. During this time, Jayachandran and Arulmozhi bought a house and they got it registered in Arulmozhi’s name by executing a settlement deed in her favour.

In 2013, when Arulmozhi died, Jayachandran unilaterally cancelled the settlement deed and sought to get the house back in his name alone. However, Arulmozhi’s father laid claim to his late daughter’s property and the trial court agreed.
