SC Reserves Verdict On Legalising Same-Sex Marriages 

| Updated: May 11, 2023 19:35

The Supreme Court, on Thursday, has reserved its verdict on a number of petitions seeking legal recognition of same-sex marriage. After a 10-day hearing in the matter, a five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud reserved the ruling.

The bench, also comprising Justices SK Kaul, SR Bhat, Hima Kohli and P S Narasimha, heard the rebuttal arguments made by senior lawyers, including AM Singhvi, Raju Ramachandran, KV Viswanathan, Anand Grover and Saurabh Kirpal, who represented the petitioners.

The Centre informed the Supreme Court during the hearing on Wednesday that whatever constitutional statement it made on arguments seeking to legalise same-sex marriage may not be the “correct course of action”, since the court would not be able to foresee, envisage, comprehend, and cope with its ramifications.

Everyone was assuming that the pronouncement would take the form of a writ, the bench had noted.

“We are all presuming that the declaration will be in the form of a writ that grant this or grant that. This is what we are accustomed to. What I was hinting was, as a constitutional court, we recognise only a state of affairs and draw the limit there…,” Justice Bhat had said.

The Centre had also told the court that it had received responses from seven states on the matter of same-sex marriage, and the governments of Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh and Assam had opposed the petitioners’ contention seeking legal sanction for such wedlock.
