Live-In Relationship And Indian Culture

This is the topic which has many point of views. In India it's more controversial among rural areas. This article describes many point of views about live-in relationship. This article also will tell you about advantages and disadvantages of it as well as Supreme court of India's decision about it.

Live-in relationship

Live-in relationship is being taken just like premarital physical relationship by many of the Indians. Its not just about physical relationship. If two love birds wants to stay together to support each other or they just like each others company, they can do that. It's nobodies business to interfere in their life. They are not harming anybody, they are not doing any crime. Why should others do have problems with them? And many people puts topic about Indian culture. I don't think that Indian culture is such narrow minded. Its just few (or many) Indian people make it. There's a good example of Hindus Lord Radha - Krishna. According to the mythology Radha and Krishna lived together but they never married. Then whats the point of worshiping Radha - Krishna on one side and while cursing a couple in relationship today.

Decision of Supreme Court of India for live in relationship

The Supreme Court said that if a man and women stay together without getting married it can not be considered as offense. Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan, Deepak Verma and B S Chauhan these were the three judges who concluded that if two adult and sound minded people wants to live together it should not be considered as offense. They also said that there was no law which prohibits live-in relationship and premarital sex.

Live-in relationship and Marriage:

Yes, of course, marriage is a good option. Personally I am going to do marriage instead of live-in relationship. I just want say that stop cursing the couple in live-in relationship.
  • Live-in relationship is good if you want to understand your partner before marriage.

  • Many of the people stay in live-in just because they don't want divorce and such matters after marriage.

  • There are not much problems in live-in relationship because each partner keeps freedom. They dont have to stay with many restrictions like in marriage (at least for Indian marriages where women have bucketful of restrictions).

  • If a couple in live-in understands each other and they feel that they can stay together for whole life they should get married.

  • In many arrange marriages partners take much time to understand each other. There can be many problems as you don't know much about your partner before marriage.
