According to me, I don't think so live-in relationship is better than marriage because in living in a relationship are parents will never agree to that and without informing them we will leave another person so it will not be good for us and our parents also and his parents will not accept us in that situation like if I live in with him before marriage in a relationship so yeah it will not good so according to me I think so that it will be better if we will share with our parents if they will agree then we have to get married directly so after live in a relationship not accepting these types of things it is bad for other people and relatives it is to insulting your parents will also feel insult people will backbite about the couple and parents.

From my point of view, marriages are better than living relatioships.

As we all follow our culture.

Our cultures don't take living relationships in a positive way. Being in living relationship, doing everything to make your partner happy, giving your best to make your partner loves you, working together for better future, being physical, thats all while when you get married you have responsibilities of your family, partner and in future your childrens resposibility, you become more mature and more understanding, you will be having a happy family.

Suppose if you are in live-in-realtionships and its not working out then you can't move to your parents house but in marrige if there is some problem You can share it with your parents also and you also have support of law.

It's not only like that living relationship doesn't work at all. Some living relationships are enjoying their lifes as they want and being happier than married couples but as you know and I said it firstly culture is must important.

So i'll definately say that living relationship is not better than marriage.

I m totally disagree with mr. Azeez comments on marriage. Your thougt may make happy only you not other. If everyone think like that then you can't amagine how our life's become dirty. If every sate led man doe't like to marry & and make comfort to take divorce he become to take interest in single. Our generation become losser. How our generation become good life. If there parents wants self fun only. My conclusion is that.

Marraige is the best thing for everyone for better life.

Hi all.

I believe that marriages are better than live-in relationships by all ways. If anyone want a life partner then why not marriage. In Indian culture marriage is legal as well accepted. Lets forget about culture if we think about our personal life also we should go for a committed relation rather than a non-committed, in committed relation there is security for both not only for girls. But there is not a single committment in live in relationship. They are free and can ditch their partner for other without any fear. Lets suppose in a relation if one partner is in a problem and other helped him/her but at the time other one has any problem he/she can sinmply run away from the problem by leaving his/her. No doubt marriage means responsibilty but real way resposbility makes a man somehow perfect and a good person. If you are in a relationship then why not you choose marriage you should have that much faith on your partner or else you can live freely as a single.

We are Indians the culture is important to us. I really support to Marriage. Because in Marriage The couple have Mutual understand for each other. In marriage couple don't loose their parents. The relationship but two families have understand for each other. In our culture marriage plays an important role to improve relationships between the people. After marriage if the couple have decided to live individually they can divide legally by the court. The court will give some time to reduce the egos but the couple in that time if the couple can understand to each other the proposal of divorce will be cancelled.

I cant understand whats wrong with people.....
The only reason people can say live-in is not good is the status of women, n how life becomes difficult for them
But how can a love less marriage be better?

It always becomes a problem for the woman to lead her life post a live-in break up, as a divorcee is better accepted & respected

If anti-live-in people are saying that live-in lacks TRUST....then why are they so keen to have the trust of the legal document?
In a live-in the only thing that keeps the couple together is love & TRUST without any guarantee

Having said that,if men can cheat in marriages, it becomes all the more easier for them, cuz they can escape with the plea that they had not committed in the first place

What holds a relationship is trust, its very difficult to find a man whom u can trust,in case of live-in, & he is actually serious, why doesnt he want marriage?the possible reason being that he still wants to be sure......

This very reason why people go for live-in is questionable.But then,a love filled live-in is way better than loveless marriage.

My point is rights n security of women.What will happen if the guy leaves her?Unfortunately they are never given respect in our society, although lives of men from broken live-in never change.Women dont even get same legal protection.

But then if the guy is serious, then the couple can marry later too...which is most advisable if they have a kid.
But theres no reason to say they degrade our culture!!!
There are so many things in our culture that are disgusting.....n why do women have to take responsibilty of culture always?
we live in 2011, where we can adopt anything good from any culture, once u r an adult & capable of thinking

Hello Friends! I read many comments over here, some of you agree with 'live-in relationship is better than Marriage'. I really respect your thoughts. But I want to ask you - Is Living-In Relationship lives long? Is there any assurance? Is there any trust?Is there any commitment? I think we should respect our culture. Marriage increases the tolerance power of two. It not just increases the understanding between the two persons but between the two families too. If there comes any problem in marriage, atleast there are many people like their parents. Who really overcomes the problem.

So I strongly feel Marriages are more respectful. Its shame to compare between marriage and Live in relationship.

Hai friends. I think live in relationship is better than marriage because here we can have a chance to choose our soul-mate. But in marriages we have to adjust with some one whether we like them or not.

One can be independent and free and need not be under control of wife or husband and mutual respect will exist in live in relation ships. In marriage we may or may not have chances.

So I support live in relation ship than marriages.

Well I oppose live-in-realtionships because of many reasons. Firt one is there is no commitment in live -in raelationship. Your partners can leave you anytime in the middle of any problem, and they will have not to bear any responsibilites of other partner, you cant claim in court for the mishappenings because live-in-relationships are not legal in India.

Second one is live-in relationships are not succeed in a long run because there is jus an infactuation which is happen for a small time, and also get over in a very small time so you have to face all difficulties afterwards.

Third one is that suppose if you are in some live-in-realtionships and its not working out then you cant move to your parents house but in marrige if there is some problem You can share it with your parents also and you also have support of law.

Fourth one is that there is no family in live-in relationship whereas you get a family in marriges, fifth one is live -in-relationships also detereoate our indian-culture.

In this fast n farward world we want everything quick and good. so dat marriage. keeping in view indian govt also permit live lin relation in some states like talk about what is live in relation. it is like living with anyone without any serious commitment and marraige is living with a serious commitment. it depends on us we belong to which cultre. what we like, what we think perfect for ur that is my culture. so if I find live in relation is better then marraige, in our generation then definately i will go for live. its all depends person to person.u r wise ,so if u find live in is god for u then nothing is wrong there to go for an live in relation.
