Name: living relationship

why living relation if u can go for marriage... i dont like the concept of living relationship..

Name: Naina
Country: India
I cannot deny that the idea of "live-ins" as an alternative to marriage probably was of Western origin. But besides stating this, I don't understand what the argument in this article is based on besides fear and hypothetical worst-case-scenarios in which most Western style relationships are doomed to failure and sad children. Instead it seems to me that when Indian culture begins to feature aspects borrowed from other cultures, it can never alter outright, instead those aspects can be inculcated into Indian values. It may not be an easy fit, but negotiating this is how change and progress occur. Why does the author think live-ins are only resorted to while waiting for somebody better to come along? For some, myself included, an unmarried marriage-like relationship is simply an alternative to marriage. I do not wish to be married yet. It has nothing to do with how I feel about my partner or any need for rebellion against society, I simply don't think it's necessary, which may be a hard idea for some to grasp. The fact that live-ins are already a popular idea in India suggest there is some need for it felt by those embracing it. Have some faith in your children to make a good decision for themselves, even if it isn't the one you would have made.

What do you think of Western culture? Do you think it really pollutes India culture? Have you ever tried to see the positive aspects of Western culture?
