The Supreme Court’s judge­ment that sex with one’s mi­nor wife is il­le­gal and will be con­sid­ered rape is hardly sur­pris­ing since child mar­riage by it­self is un­law­ful. While some ortho­dox fam­i­lies marry off their girl chil­dren early, the child-bride re­mains with her par­ents till she be­comes a ma­jor. The SC rul­ing will help en­force the law and is welcome.
