Supreme Court Rejects Same-Sex Marriage and Civil Unions in India

The Supreme Court rejected the recognition of same-sex marriages or civil unions in a recent case, stating that they are not permissible under current Indian laws. However, there was a minority opinion within the Court that recognized the right of queer couples to enter into civil unions, even if they cannot marry under the existing legal framework. This means that while same-sex marriage remains unrecognized, the Court acknowledged the possibility of civil unions for LGBTQ+ couples.
