A bizarre accident happened few years back in
When do we actually think of marriage? As soon as we reach a marriageable age after slogging all through the way for a cosy job, parents and the society begin to haunt us with those dreaded words, “settle down”, the palatable euphemism that has become synonymous with marriage. The most incredible thing, which makes it even more appalling, about marriage is how the society so coldly ignores the fulcrum of the institution of marriage, the workings of a healthy relationship, to time and forces beyond one’s control. Most of the marriage journeys begin as a dangerous treasure hunt without any clues to find the treasure of happiness. This treasure hunt has only one certainty. Compromise. The present Gen-Y generation can no longer stand to compromise. With economic freedom in place, social freedom has to follow. Live-in relationships provide a suitable way by which relationships can work smoothly without the heavy burden of commitment. Unlike popular myths, live-in relationships are no longer about transactional relationship. Live-in relationships work on the greatest truth of life: Change is the only constant in this world. With the advent of globalization, live-in relationships have become the magic pill that can cure the illness of the system of marriage. Several couples have begun to start their lives together by cohabiting together to understand their partners in totality which ensures that their relationship remains fool-proof. Its heartening to note that few governments have shed their old mindsets and are now willing to embrace the change. Live-in relationships is no longer illegal in several cities of our country. Relationships are all about living in harmony. Although Social mores set the tone for living in a society, they have to adapt to the changing times. May there be change for the betterment of lives.
