Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma got married in Italy and they also held wedding receptions at New Delhi and Mumbai. But, according to some rumours, they don’t hold a valid marriage certificate as per Indian laws. Therefore, they might have to marry again.
The good news is that there is another marriage Act under which they will be considered legally married couple.
The Foreign Marriage Act, 1969
The act states,
“The Central Government by way of notifications in the Official Gazette shall appoint such diplomatic Officer may deem fit as a Marriage Officer. Diplomatic Officer means an ambassador, minister, envoy or other diplomatic representatives or a Counselor, etc.”
“In order to solemnize a marriage under this Act, one of the Parties at least should be the Citizen of India. This marriage should be solemnized before the so called Marriage Officer in foreign countries.”
On the other hand, the couple is yet to comment on the rumour and let’s see what they say.
