You are absolutely free to establish a sexual relationship with your partner if you have completed 18-years of age. There is no prohibition to make any sexual relationship with your partner after the permissible age of 18 years.
You can’t be arrested by the police only on the basis that you are staying with your girl in the same hotel room. There is no such regulation in India that allows cops to arrest an unmarried couple found in a hotel together.
If a couple is live-in-relationship and staying together as a married couple then they will be considered married. The decision has been announced by Supreme Court of India.
As the couple live-in-relationship will be considered married couple then during this period, if the male partner dies, his property will be inherited by his living female partner.
Those couples who are constantly engaged in sexual relations with each other will be considered married couple irrespective of the fact that they are live-in-relationship or not.
The child born out of the live-in-relationship will be considered legal child and will possess all the legal rights and inherit the property of his father. The Supreme Court of India said that the child born out of prolonged live-in-relationship will be legitimate.
