Basically no need to discuss marital affairs in public but above statement is given because there is no other way to get rid of it, so discussion on politician's marital status can be done but it might be ok only in positive way.

Other countries like Britain, USA, Canada, France etc. are much advance and free in this matter and any marital status or affair does not make any difference and interference is very less in private lives as compare to India.

Why marital status/affairs should not be open :
The very first reason is that: Nobody likes his/her personal life to be expose in public and everyone have right to keep privacy and same politicians. They should be treated as normal person who get up in the morning and start work and after finishing work spending his /her time with their beloved ones.

Why to debate publically about politicians marital status/affairs when it has nothing to do with their work ? Rather than discussing someone's personal affairs, important matter of work , politician's shortcoming , his/her work performance should be discussed .

Recently media attract the attention of whole country or world towards two politicians by exposing their marital status / affair. Comments been made by the member of both the political parties and nothing been gained by this except a interesting story. So it's a totally waste of time. Politicians should be leave alone with their marital status /affairs

Conclusion: Marital status and affairs are very very private part of one's life, even if people want to know about their favourite ones it should not be exposed on big scale. Giving information about someone should not be changed into exposing someone openly. It should be openly debated only if the person belonging to the story is comfortable enough otherwise there is no right to hurt someone personally.
