Courts are a carafe address for shocking verdicts. Sensational decisions are being taken with the sole aim of getting justice for the victims. Disparate verdicts in cases like sexual harassment, marital relations and family problems are becoming a hot topic. Recently the Madras court also gave a similar verdict. A man living in America was allowed to marry a young woman living in India. The peculiarity of this is that since the bridegroom is in America, the bride has suggested two signatures in the register. Apart from that, orders were issued to consider the marriage legally. Rahul fell in love with Vamsi Sudarshi from Manavalakurichi area of ‚Äč‚ÄčKanyakumari district in Tamil Nadu. While Rahul went to America, Sudarshini stayed in India. In this order, Rahul came to India for some time. Both of them decided to get married. But the registrar refused to respect their marriage. The distraught young women were asked to give reasons for refusing their marriage. The registrar officer did not give a valid reason and Rahul left America as his visa had already expired.

In this order, Sudarshini was asked by the Madras court to allow both of them to get married through video conference. Apart from that, they petitioned to legalize their marriage. Justice GR Swaminathan, the judge who took up the investigation of this lawsuit, said that there are no legal obstacles for young men and women to get married. The judgment revealed that both the signatures of the bride and groom can be done by the bride in the marriage register. It then directed the concerned registrar to register the marriage as per law.
