live in relationship as shown in salam nameste is not better that marriage.
it will spoil our culture.as we are indian it is our culture only which differenciate us from rest of the world.

also the child born under such condition will not have secure future .moreover society will always look up to this relation as a sin.

well preeti, as per my personal opinion, i don believe in live in relationships. But then live in relationships do have their benefits.
living relationships can helpa person to decide whether he can spend his whole life with a particular person or not. many ppl end up marrying a wriong person and then cry for the whole life. after all we have only one life to live and we shd live it to the fullest. But yes, as u said, having a child after livin relationships can be detrimental for the child. one shd not go for such life long resposibilities from livin relationships. livin relationships can be a prerequisite to maariage but not an ultimate aim. once a person realizes that he is compatible with his mate, marriage should be the next step.

well ruhani some how our opinion matches ,thank god.

well i too agree with you but one think i want to add is that no one wants to marry such kind of person who was having live in relationshipin his past life,atleast i don't.

also live in relatioship is the culture of west and also of the page3 ppl.

live in relationship excited everyone but it is only upto young age.
after that no one wants to have such relationship with the oldperson.
so a person needs a securityin his old age and for such security on should get married rather than having a live in relationship.

well preeti, firstly let me tell u very honestly that on the personal front i m very much against livin relationships etc. But as we r here to prepare for GD, its just that i m trying to put the opposite views to make things more helpful :)
ok so cming to the professional front.
Firstly,livin relationships do not mean just sexual relations. its the way the world predicts it. of course, such relationshios shd involve emotional aspects as well. as i said earlier livin relationships can b a prerequisite to marriage but not an ultimate aim. but yes, i feel strongly that havin a livin relationship is much better than marrying a wrong man and crying for ur whole life. If the things go well in such relations, a coupla can be assured to live rest of their lives happiy together as they already know that they are compatible with each other. rather than putting one's precious life on risk by marryin an unknown person,its much much better to hav a livin relationship,judge each other and then get married. its all abt culture. we cannot say that western culture is bad and ours is good. just ponder over it:India has second highest no. of aids patients in it after Africa. Only difference is what they do openly, Indians do under a cover.

well as far as marrying a person is concerned ,one can also marry a person if he/she know each other well(love marriage).

but here the case is different.here aperson stay together.live like a married couple but not actually married.

marriage gives us a sense of protection.ppl will not look up to them as a sinner. u say see the compatibility but if u r so much concerned abot your future then u must also see the kind of relationship u r involved.

whats the difference between love marriage and live in relationship.
the difference is that u have a proper name to your relation and also secured future.

what if after spending 3 years with aperson u dont feel the the need anymore than the difference is just a divorce.

also such relation is given the name of prostitution because u r staying with him for long and suddenly you broke and find another person.

i finally agree wid u both ruhani and preeti .... u dont believe in live in relationship and so dont i.... but love marriage is also a part of live in relationship... couple generally continue in a relationship before they marry..... so.. its all the same... doesnt make any relationship offcourse u cant stay in live in relationship for life long.. but staying together for say some days... is obvious OK... coz in love also the same thing happens... u live in and u have sex... in love u dont live together but u have sex its all the same... why blame then a new trend of live in relationship.. but u can have a live in relationship only if ur sure tht ur going to marry.. other wise.. the society wud not only despise the gal.. but also the guy... :D

well it jus shows todays youth jus dont wan to tie a knot with (anybody)whom they don know n they wan to see if really they can spend rest of their life with the person . it shows openess which has com into our culture (MTV CULTURE) it shows that indian women (traditonally thought to b a housewife) wan to live her life on her own terms . she hav her own ambition n did not wan to b in a relationship in which she can not fulfill her desires . and the best part of it is that both partners r indepedent n yet always there to help each other , but this relationship shouud always be taken in a right perspective.

I agree with you Kidd that love before marriage is also the part of Live In Relationship. But if the couple knows their responsibility and stays together just to understand eachother, i don't think its wrong. But if they stays together just for fun its wrong and they also have to face the society. When we say that it is the Western culture and we should go for them, we should also understand that it is considered as bad there as in India. Only thing is that no body there want to interfere anybody's personal life as indian likes much.

Thanks Kidd

This is just my thinking that only the thing which we call as society is responsible for all that. We know that its human tendensy that we go only for the things which are restricted for us. Adam and Eve is the good example of that....
So the need is to change the society, which enjoys interfering matters of others. :?:

Hi ppl,

Wow!! I'm really very surprised to see the views on this topic .. everybody agrees that live - in is ok as long as they get married at the end .. just like in salaam namaste right?? Saif does propose to her at the end ..

I don't know if u ppl realised but, "the society" that everybody is referring to is u and me .. if we stop commenting / looking down upon ppl who are in a live - in relationship and accept them .. then soceity accepts them ..

Someone here spoke about prostitution .. so if one were to get married and had extra - marital affairs .. is it more respectable than a live -in relationship ? ..

If it is issues about security and support system .. i do agree marriage is better off at most times since u have a family to fall back upon .. (2 in fact .. both parents and in-laws) .. But then, "society" looks down upon love marriages too .. so is that wrong / bad?

And please ppl, don't limit Indian culture to a sari - clad woman with sindhoor on her forehead and mangalsutra round her neck, waiting with a pooja thali on karva chauth for her husband ..

Indian culture is infinitely greater than that .. its about respect, care , love, open hearts and minds .. We need to respect the other person's views and choice ..

That said, it does not mean i consider it great and that everybody should follow it .. it is an individual's choice .. And as far as kids are concerned .. parents shud take care of their kids .. whether they are married or not .. that is a different issue all together ..

Someone said security and name for the relationship .. what security do u get in marriage and i presume we are talking about security for women here ..

financial .. today women earn enough to sustain themselves .. lots of families in India are supported by the woman's earnings ..

emotional .. if the husband does not care .. where is the security? family.. but the same problem can be seen in love marriages too, where the families refuse to accept them ..

i can't think of any other ..

name .. i really don't think that will matter .. how do you know a couple is not married unless they tell you .. relationships are about care, love and commitment .. not names ..

i know its a pretty long story here :wink: ... but i wanted to bring all these points across ... and another thing .. i'm not in a live - in relationship .. so i'm not defending myself .. :D

Hi all
I went through the discussion...
How does a live in relationship starts?
It starts when two people r close to each other get attracted towards eachother..and then start living togther...
Now comes the turn in the relationship as earlier they were friends now they have other responsibilities also..which are somewhat same to those after marriage, but as they r not married their commitment towards eachother is not to the fullest because they think that at any point anything can happen...like the society, parents opinion and thier own opinion also...they hesitate to do the things with full comitments ...that's why 87% of the live in relationships end in a negative way....

So when u like someone why go for that go for love marriage, anyway u know him/her very well.

so guys what a way to kno each other...thatz really absurd...dont u kno your partner well in simple love marriages....??????
well many r of the opinion that itz ok 2 have a live in relationship as long as u get married...but what we r actually discussing is if live in relationships r better than marriage?
Is the drastic step of having sex so important to know ur partner well?? would u never feel guilty in ur future, 4 having done so??What if the relationship does not culiminate in a marriage....and the the livin partners get married to other individuals???Now in context to our esteemed culture....what if the children of such marriages get to kno in later life that one or both of their parents had sex before marriage with some other partners...???Why only the child, wud u have a face to show to ur husband/wife if he/she getz to kno this...???
Well there r many other ways to kno ur partner in a much better way than have a live in relationship...There can only be one purpose of havin such a relationship ....viz ...satisfying lust...and temporary fun...
