A. Dear Client,
Having sex in the pretext of marriage(pre marital sex) is a crime.
If the girl complains there is every possibility that you might land up in trouble.

A. Answer is yes. Because in such cases it is presumed that the consent for relationships was not free consent but it was taken by false promise of marriage thus it was obtained by fraud. So it falls in category of rape. So u have to be very careful and prepare ur ur defence before she actually take steps. For more brief u may call me in case of need

A. This has been used many a times as a mechanism to harass the boy by the girl as there is a law under which a girl can raise a complaint of rape when sex is done under the pretext of marriage. Good news is that recently the Supreme Court has said that these kind of case should not be treated as rape. But this SC precedent will be raised in court when she files an FIR and that results in a court case. So till the time it goes to court and finally gets dismissed there is possibility of harassment at the hand of the girl, so, you need to be careful.
