The Supreme Court observation justifying live-in relationships should be looked upon as the judges' personal views, senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu said today.

"There are many issues which are not crimes as per law. But we, Indians, follow certain values that are inseparable. It (Supreme Court observation) is not a judgement. It is judges' personal views," Naidu told reporters here.

The Supreme Court yesterday observed that live-in relationship between two adults cannot be termed as an offence. The three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan, Justice Deepak Verma and Justice B S Chauhan observed that living together is a part of life and when two adults want to live together, it is not an offence.
