Over at the Nach Baliye 2 forum some of us touched on the topic of Live-in relationships...but due to the danger of the topic veering dangerously off-topic i decided to shift discussion here...
Salaam Namaste explored the whole concept of Live-In relationships...and i hear that there were many critics who slammed the movie because it did not portray 'indian values'
But you see, now i am confused. why? Because many a time you see television stars and they live in the same house...
Tanaaz and Bakhtiyar etc etc
So...if live-in relationships DO happen...then why was SN bashed for showing that? and why did the makers market it as "something that will shock everyone" lolz man am i confused or what?
So, ANYWAYS, i know that there have been many topic on "is marriage really needed?" and this one kinda relates to that, but is a little bit different (had to say that else mods may close topic)
What do you think of Live-In relationships?
Do you think that they represent the 'indian values'? Or is it something that isn't related to values. it's just different?
If you are living the life of a married couple, then why not just get married? i know there IS whole arguement on that, that you just need to love, don't need an authentication certificate...but i would like to know any other reason...simply for the fact that I'm curious :P
So...what about the kids? whose name would they go by? the mums or dads?
anyways, mostly im just asking what most Indians feel about Live-In relationships and if this is wide-spread or just restricted to the rich and famous?Edited by kisnakiradha - 13 years ago
Even though I was raised in the US since I was 1, I
am still dead set against live-in realtionships. I think its is morally
and ethically wrong. Why do you think god created the holy aspect of
marriage. I also feel that people who live together before they are
married, don't really love each other. Besides, think about the harmful
effect on children that result due to this. I personally have some
friends who are facing that very situation like this, and to tell you
the truth it is tearing them apart litterally! Anyways I just thank god
that my I'm not facing anything like this!
i dont think theres anything wrong with live in relationships...marrige is a big cometiment and peole live together before marige to see if they can adjust with each other.
I agree with you. Before I got married to my husband, we lived together for almost 2 years. By living together before marriage, we saw each other's true colors.
