IndiaNewsonWeb: 11 Oct, 2017, The Supreme Court has given a major decision on forced physical relations for a minor wife. The country's largest court has said that forcible physical relations with a minor wife will be considered a rape. Although the central government was not in favor of it. In response to a petition demanding extension of the age of consent for sexual intercourse between husband and wife, the government had said that child marriage in India is a reality and the marriage institution must be protected.

According to the law, girls should be married at least 18 years of age. In the case of boys there is a provision of 21 years minimum age. Although Indian law also recognizes child marriage as legitimate, in which there is a connection between husband and wife. The legally valid age of physical relationship with consent is 18 years and if the girl's age is less than that, such a relationship is considered to be a rape. However, sex with the wife of less than 15 years of age is not considered a crime when they are married.
