Marriage Protection from high court Chandigarh
Marriage is a personal decision –
Marriage is a personal decision between two peoples. When a couple decides to get married to each other, then nobody has the right to interfere with them. Even their family members also. For example, A (Girl) got married last week to B (boy) who is wonderful for her. Maybe he isn’t wonderful for everyone, but he is wonderful for her. Maybe A is not wonderful for everyone, but she is wonderful for him. they are very compatible.
This is really kind of very personal decision. When somebody strongly opposes the marriage of a couple with violence, then the couple needs protection from them. At that time the couple needs physical as well as mental protection.

It’s the fundamental right of grownups to solemnize marriage with their free will and choice. But even in spite of a lot of commercial and educational development still, fundamentalist or conservative people think it immoral. Recent incidents of Honor killing have proved it. Still, in 21st Century people think the female child as a property of the family and forget that she is a human being also has desires, ideas, dreams, and a kind heart. The law seems to be on the side of free will having married as reveals from recent judgments of the Supreme Court as well as various High Courts.
