No,Live-in relationship are not at all better than marriages because
in live in relationship there is no commitment.One person can leave
his/her partner any time.There is no life time assurance that ur
partner will always support u at any moment of life.It may happen
that ur partner is living wid u only because of some kind of
infatuation and after some time when that infatuation is over then
he/she can leave u.Bt in marriages there is a commitment and also
law of our country supports Marriages.they dont support live in
relationships.So if a person who is married to u leaves u or tries
to marry someone else then u can challenge him/her in court also.But
in live in relations u cant do so.So I beleive that live in
relations dont offer any guarranty but marrriages are like a bond or
commitment between 2 people and their families

I think marriages are not good. Because both people left their
parents and relatives alone. especially, ladies have to suffer a lot
today due to boy's cruelness.

In my point of view, Marriages are always better than any
relationship because your spouse is always for you.. He/she loves
you, liking to be with you, or do any things only because of u... No
one in the world can do for you except your partner.. And also dont
avoid your family or relation ..

Hai friends.. I think marriages are not good. because here i want to
say one good example.. suppose we want to buy one bike means.. fist
we analyse that bike characteristic and get details , which one is
better for us after that using . Suppose any one problem is
arriving,, we can change or claim for that. bt after marriage , no
chance for that. whatever happen,we will simply sacrifice our life.
In my point of view marriage life is like a jail life... life is one
so live it happily.... not slavely..

@Azeez : well Azeez u wrote very well... but this can only be
applied to things.... because things are perfect to our work......
but human beings are never perfect....u will always find pros and
cons in any person..... u will never get any person who will be
having only positive points. so when you involved in marriage then
you come to know what responsibility is??? am agree with your point
that if somehow we got the person which we don't like at all.... for
that we have so many options like we can be strict to change the
behavior of your partner or we can have deep talks and one the
important thing we must always share what we like and what we don't
like... this is also applicable to open relations.
At last i want to say one thing... if you want satisfaction
throughout your life......then go for marriage not for open
relationship.. because these are nor persistent...and one more thing
,here for marriage we also have to do hard work for finding our best can also go in the marriage
market...(matrimonial) you go for bikes or cars...and i hope
you will one day get good one...all the best

As per me... i think the most important thing in any relationship is
the trust... and its not easy to form that thing ...secondly... the
compatability factor...means what better than it is if both the
partner can live together. If both the families have no prob. I
agree that such thing is not that much favorable in our country but
look at the other side also.
What if u marry someone...and later find out that u cant live under
one roof... it may lead to divorce or any such bad consequences...
So its better to check your compatability and i think the best way
is live in relationship...

Hi!!!! The entire concept of live -ins suits the western people and
we indian are far behind accepting these things. Yet the youth today
is of the opinion that Live Ins shall be helpful for them to
understand their partners. If it just to understand your partner
there are many other things like talking on phone, chatting or
spending sme quality time with them.
For understanding whether to live wit a person or not will we have
to go against our society. We being part and parcel of our society
should never mess up with such things. For any realtion to be
successful we will have to sacrifice a little so same is the same
with marriages also. But we people today dont wanna sacrifice
anything and wanna have fun too which is may things worse.
So what basically we should understand is its not like in live ins u
understand your partner which will add up for a successful marrigae.
Live ins dont make successful marriages but little compromise and
trust makes it. So the entire idea of live in relationship has to be

I would like to say that marriages are better when compared to
living relationships. Because, Indian marriage system consists of
set of rules and regulations say register marriage or traditional
marriage. Where as, for living relationships there is no rules and
regulations and if any thing happens unpredictable in future, there
is no third party involvement. Also, now a days people are just
quiting themselves for small reasongs and especially this is more
with livings.
So guys i would say, go for nice traditional marriage and live your
life happily.
Nothing danger happens if you love your better-half after marriage.

Hi friends, we cannot forecast that marriage is better or live in
relation for someone. Its depend our personal choice and apathy. If
both patner want to live together it doesn't affect are they married
or not, because they are assured to each other. I oppose the my
frinds who says in marriage we can't live our partner. If spouse
doesnot under stand each other it will create woe.
We can't say our culture does not allow this, as you know we are

There are so many assumption people are keep in his\her mind that
living relationship is wrong or write but according to me every
thing's has some write or wrong points.
So wrong point to words live in relation ship that. You unable to
create a social relation's, back ground (family) support and some
time some or more economy problems are to be comes.
Which all problem's not yet come on arrange marriage. If you have
strong economy position then you can but not for longer time because
your mentality agree that men and women can free after some time if
they don't like to each other. If you are in live in relation ship
suppose you(women) got pregnant then after breaking the child future
are insecure. So you can better decide your better future.

See the real fact is that human's are social animal and they need

once, but I completely disagree to this point, it is never so. There
is no point in telling that it is not our culture basically how long
can you keep your culture this closed way? Things are changing in
rapid space.
No one have time for each other every one is busy in their own life.
So why interfere in peoples life when they want in that way. And if
this is the way a boy and girl want to keep their relation then they
would be allowed. In other case also they would have all kind of
relations. So why just in front of others they should not go in a

What culture? I hate the fact that KAMASUTRA originated from India
but when we talk about sexuality, we start talking about 'holy'
culture. KAMASUTRA was our culture.
Now, my opinion is - let it be to your choice. If I like it or I met
with a situation where I had to live-in, don't judge me. I agree
with Riya. I am a modern man. I will have girl friends before
marriage. Sex is there in a relationship. The only difference in
live-in is we are staying together. Having said that, people in
live-in should be really have a strong opinion on what they want,
because there might be emotional attachments and heart breaks later
on. But even long term awesome relationships might develop even from
live-ins. So "live and let live" is my agenda.

you are looking to only one side of it, you are not looking to the
richest culutre of the world where lord rama, lord krishna were
born. Still as compare to live in relationship or love marriges the
percentage of arrange marriges is far better this is only beacuse
arrange marrige give you security and trust, while in live ins we
have seen that couples broke over a minute dispute which can be

Live in relationship has become todays trend. It is a fact that this

has stareted in India also. But it will never hav a value of a
married life. Married life is really a commitment you make with your
life partners. But in current world if you see marriage also has
become a live in relationship. It is like a ship, which can even
sink in between or it can reach the shore. If we see in both cases
we don't have any guarantee of the life.

Everything has its pros and cons. But according to me the advantages
of marriage are much more than those in live-in relationships. It is
not always necessary that two unknown individuals marry each other.
If one wants to understand the other person there are many other
ways rather than going in for live-in relationships. They can meet
each other regularly and speak their heart out. Only when they feel
comfortable should they marry. Thus, the security and commitment
from both parties can be assured in marriage as well as
disadvantages of live-in relationships can be done away with.
Marriages are better than live-in relationships.

only when he or she gets married they will understand the real life.

friends according to my point of view live -in relationships are

more better as compared to that of marriages because in live-in
relationship we get proper time to understand a person .and after
spending proper time with a person you can know that this person can
adjust with you or not .He or she is capable to understand you or
not and many more things like that .But in case of marriages you do
not have that option whether a person supports you or not love you
or not you have to be with that person because you have made a
comitment and a lawful relation. And rest depends or varies on a
person thinking that what type of person they actually need.

As Vimal has said: A relationship works out on the trust factor.
Marriage or live-in-relationship both has its pros and cons. In
marriage you marry a person and settle down. It depends on the
partners how the relationship between them works out to. Many
marriages have happy endings and many dont even last for a month. It
is same in live-in-relationship as well. Both can either have happy
and sad endings. According to me the need for today in a country
like India is that we take the positives of both the cases. For eg:
A guy and a gal should meet officially in presence of their
families, and families should also try and give them comfortable
time and space to understand each other. They should spend some
quality time with each other to try and understand each other. Also
families should see to it that they should not force their children
to marry before the right age as it hampers the relationships as

Well according to me marriage is better in any ways because in case

of live in relationship we give our partner a chance to avoid
responsibilities, we cant blame our partner if he or she leaves us
as they can neglect their partner legally, but the bond of marriage
is so strong that one bound to fall in love with his spouse even in
the case of arrange marriage, because marriage is such a great thing
when a couple starts to live together they must love each other, we
hear "happily married", do you hear "happily lived in an open
relationship" ever?not for our country atleast, girls of other
countries are strong enough to face reality or to overcome when her

well, i think live in relationship is being liked by those people
who are very much of western minded, want to stay away from
responsibility and go for only joy. marriage is a commitment to
remain with each other in every state of life and for that both of
them have to sacrifice and their sacrifice results in a happy
married life. unfortunately we are very fond showing ourselves
modern but can anyone of us kiss his girlfriend or boyfriend before
our parents??? no... because we are basically Indians, we know our
traditions. no one is perfect and one cannot get a person as per
his/her liking, one has to adjust. one who does not adjust, cannot

But in westren culture does belive live in relation. They change
his\her life partner randdomly. In our culture marrage life is life
long but his culture relation is like a pleasure. They broke his
relation at one moment also. In our marrage life affection
occure&our family is like a heaven place. So don't follow westren
