Two lesbians in Delhi decided to get married but their families are opposed to this marriage and threat them. The couple asked the court for protection.

The girls are together since 15 years ago. They have then decided to get married but their families have threaten to kill the couple:

"Our family members can take harsh steps against us. They even threatened to kill us. We were married on the 22nd and are now in court seeking protection." their lawyer said.

In India, the marriages are not recognized by the law but we will see if the court will allow this protection or not to them.
