Can a Couple Stay in a Hotel Without Marriage? | By Ishan [Hindi]
There are countless incidents where innocent couples are arrested from hotel rooms. The Police arrest them without any valid reason. In a lot of cases, such couples are even blamed for engaging in prostitution.
It made headlines when the Police broke into hotel rooms in Mumbai. They arrested some 40-odd couples found in these rooms. The police not only charged these couples with ‘indecent behavior.’ and called the parents of these couples but also charged Rs. 1200 as fine with morality lessons. All these couples were young adults. Anyone over the age of 18 can legally consent for any kind of physical relationship.
Then what was their crime? The crime was that they were unmarried couples. According to the Police, unmarried couples spending time together in a hotel room is ‘immoral.’
What Does the Law Say About it?
All the moral and actual policing would make you think that staying in hotel rooms is illegal in India if you are an unmarried couple. But there is no law in India that says this.
Yes, there is not a single law that says unmarried couples cannot stay together or book a hotel room. This is not all. Refusing to let out a hotel room to someone because of their marital status is a violation of fundamental rights.
Time and again, the Supreme Court has said that it is legal for unmarried couples to stay together.
Then why do hotels refuse to let out a room to an unmarried couple? Also, why does the Police arrest such couples?
The answer is simple. Hotels refuse because they fear the Police. The Police arrests because they love to teach ‘moral’ lessons to young couples.
The only exceptions to this rule are five star and other high-end hotels. These hotels do not ask any uncomfortable questions to their guests, nor do they ask for identity or marriage proofs.
