The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled against legally recognizing same-sex marriages in a 3:2 verdict. The five-judge Constitution bench—headed by Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud—said queer people can enter a union, but the right to marriage isn't a fundamental right. It observed the legislature must decide on recognizing same-sex marriages, asking the Centre to form a panel to decide on queer couples' rights/benefits.
