Same-sex marriage: The Centre has opposed same-sex marriages in the country saying that it is not comparable with the Indian family unit concept of a husband, a wife, and children.
The Centre on Sunday filed an affidavit before Supreme Court and opposed the legal recognition of same-sex marriage.
Centre told the top court that same-sex relationships and heterosexual relationships are clearly distinct classes that cannot be treated identically.
The government apprised the Supreme Court that living together as partners by same-sex individuals, which is decriminalised now, is not comparable with the Indian family unit concept of a husband, a wife and children.
