Christian Law


Christians in India have had different laws on succession. The British Indian Government enacted the Indian Succession Act of 1865 on the recommendations of the 3rd Law Commission. This Act was intended to be applied to different communities in British India who did not have a law of their own in matters of succession. It was specifically provided that it would not apply in the case of Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs or Janis. But its provisions were to apply in the case of Christians.The Christian Law of Marriage in India is governed by the Indian Christian Marriage Act of 1872.

Marriage, as is seen in Christian tradition, is not merely a civil contract nor is it purely a religious contract. It is seen as a contract according to the law of nature, antecedent to civil institutions and by itself an institution. A marriage among Christians is traditionally understood as the voluntary union for life of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others, and Indian law follows suit, so that India does not allow for the possibility of same-sex marriage as it has been celebrated by some churches in other countries in recent years.
