A Lok Adalat held in Khandwa has brokered a unique agreement among a man, his wife and his live-in partner, granting the latter an exclusive 15-day access per month to the man in question.

The court also asked the man to spend another half of the month exclusively with his wife.

As per the order issued by judge Ganga Charan Dube on Saturday, the wife and the live-in partner will live under the same roof and share space with the man they love for a fortnight each, following a mutual agreement between them.

The house of the man, who retired recently as a state electricity department employee in Omkareshwar, has three rooms and as per the agreement, he will stay in the middle while remaining two rooms will be occupied by his wife and his woman friend, separately.

"The middle room will have an access to both the rooms and the court directed the man to spend a fortnight each with both of them," said government advocate Ashwini Bhate.

As per the agreement, the live-in partner will also have equal share in movable and immovable properties of the man they love.

His wife had filed a complaint with Lok Adalat alleging that her husband spends most of the time with his woman friend and for the last two years she has been staying with them at their house.
