Live-in Relationship: A move towards marriage
According to Indian culture and Indian mentality staying in ‘live-in’ is a big sin. But now -a- days things are changing, especially in metro cities. Marriage in the 21st century is so much different than it used to be, people don’t think in the same way, the previous generation used to think.
Our priorities in life have a completely different perspective. Our generation is not ashamed or afraid of a failed relationship. Earlier, live -in relationships were looked down , but now it is very much necessary to know a person properly before getting married. And there is no better way than a live-in relationship.
Here are 10 reasons why every Indian couple should live – in together before marriage:-
1. Live-in is a real test of a relationship:-
A relationship is much more than just a perfect date. You may think that you have found the right partner for yourself, but the day you start living in with your partner, you will realize how compatible you are with each other. When you start living together, you will be able to find out that whether there is a boredom or awkward silence, or you both think alike in most of the issues or you have a disagreement with most of the things or not.
2. It will help in balancing your relationship:
You all may learn to balance the relationship, daily chores, expenses, together. With time, your partner’s values and priorities will become clear and will help to see if these are really what you both want.
3. You will deal with each other’s imperfections:
Living-in leaves no space for any pretense. You see your partner for who they are. Accepting with all the imperfections is another aspect of a live-in relationship, it is an eye-opener. You get to find many new things every day.
4. You will get to know whether you can manage a house or not:
To manage household kinds of stuff is not an easy task. Especially when you are young, managing the finances where you both have the challenge to afford a lifestyle which you are used to that sometimes takes a lot in a relationship.
5. Is it just attraction and infatuation?
At the initial stage of a live-in relationship, there would be a lot of passion, love, and affection, but gradually that first flush of romance is settled down. Are you both looking for existing together? Do you make each-other comfortable all the time? And the most important question – is there only a connection beyond physical attraction?
6. Can you compromise for each-other:

When you get into a mode of arguing and land up fighting together, do you know what to do that time because you both are living together under one roof.

7. A chance to know each other emotions and feelings:
Every relationship takes time to evolve, no matter how much you love each other; it takes the time to take adjust with each other. In India, parents are always involved in our smallest things.

8. You would know what you actually want:
Many people don’t realize what they are doing or going into. Whether they are ready or not for the long-term commitment or not. And maybe sometimes you get to know after sometimes and just don’t love each other anymore as you used to do. The live-in relations give the practical reason about what exactly you want from your married life.
9. How compatible you are with each other:
A lot of Indians couples prefer staying with their parents after getting married. It is important to live in together to evaluate that where you stand as a couple. It may happen that certain habits you won’t know about your partner unless you are staying with them. There’s a chance that your relations might not work out. You may realize that you are not compatible enough, and may decide to split. A failed relationship is thousand times better than a failed marriage. Living in can decrease the chances of getting a divorce.
10. It will be easy to reach on a conclusion:
Living together is not like watching a romantic film. Here your love will be tested time to time. If you may love each-other even after watching your drawbacks and irritating habits, there is a fair chance of a successful marriage ahead.
