Your life doesn't get better by chance.. it gets better by change.
We live in a dynamic world and it is essential that we adjust ourselves according to time, it is necessary to cope with the changing environment. Also most of the times, these changes are for the better. We cant hold on to traditions that do not match our today’s interests and routines. Like the females of the family should not be asked and expected to starve till their husbands and other males are done with their meals. However, this is still prevalent in some areas and households because of the same traditional mentality of people that was at the time of 80’s. This is ofcourse not wrong or harmful to anyone but this might hurt the feelings and patience of the females who are not familiar with such practices.

We have witnessed a lot of changes in our society in the recent past.One such change is the introduction and acceptance of the live-in relationships. In a live-in relationship a boy and a girl start living together before their marriage so that they get to know each other better. Everyone is familiar with this idea as shown in some movies like “luka chupi” and “de de pyaar de” This provides a better insight and understanding about your partner, their likes and dislikes and also about the long term compatibility of the couple.

Not only the couple is in advantage of knowing each other’s habits but also the families get to know the other person and this is obviously a plus point for future peace in the family. But the society hasn't welcomed this concept yet knowing its pros. It remains constricted to some areas in the metropolitan cities. Rest of the society is not yet open to such a concept.

People see it as inappropriate, some criticize it on the grounds of it being the ideology of the western culture and some think that the couple might cross their intimacy limits before marriage that might prove to be . They don't welcome this change and want to stick with the old traditional way of thinking. This doesn't mean that the old traditional way of thinking was wrong. It is just that it suited the old times. But now it is the need for change and adaptation of the new customs if they provide some better insight. At last I'd just say that any day a live in relationship is better than a failed marriage. Rest.. The choice is yours!!
