Kerala HC Supports Same-Sex Marriage As Lesbian Couple Turns Brides After Overcoming All Odds!

After a long struggle against family and society, happiness finally came into the lives of Adhila Nasarin and Fathima Noora. The same-sex couple separated last June due to family objections. At the initiative of the Kerala High Court, they came closer again.

After Adhila and Fathima’s relationship became known, Fathima’s family kept her under house arrest. They filed a ‘habeas corpus’ petition in the Kerala High Court to verify whether Fathima was alive or not. The court ordered Fathima’s family to bring her to court. After hearing the details, the court allowed the two to live together. In a happy development, the two have again gone viral for a wedding photoshoot where they posed as brides.

Adhila said, “We just tried the photoshoot because we thought the idea was interesting.” The couple wants to get married at some point in the future. Same-sex marriage is not legally sanctioned in India, although the Delhi High Court as well as the Supreme Court are considering petitions on the matter.

Adhila expressed her frustration. She talked about how any form that has to be filled out asks for the name of the husband, wife or father. This is even more problematic when you consider the fact that Adhila and Fathima are not on good terms with their families.

In the viral picture, it is seen that both of them are wearing lehengas in the photo shoot. Sometimes they are swapping, sometimes kissing each other.  Fathima and Adhila have many supporters and well-wishers. They struggle with detractors who point similar barbs at them about their relationship being a “phase”, a common homophobic stereotype that plagues queer couples.
