Why a live-in relationship could be a good idea

A relationship should be between two people and not the whole world. So the next time your next-door Mishra Ji gasps when he hears about your live- in relationship, you can ask him to mind his business. Live-ins in India still makes eyes pop and are a little off from our conventional sanskar, they are still a pretty good idea.




1. 50-50:

Think about all the extra money the both of you can save! Split everything from rent, food, electricity just everything. Having one home makes it more convenient, you end of saving more money from the very start of your relationship and also have more time to give each other after your long day of work. Take a romantic holiday with all that spare cash and fall in love over and over again.

2. Compatibility:

Love is a lot like a backache, it doesn’t show up on X-rays, but you know it’s there. Well, couples these days don’t want to that backache for life, which is why live-in is the best time to find out how compatible the two of you are. It helps you see the good, bad and ugly in a person after which you can decide whether it’s worth all the effort.

3. Sharing:

Well apart from sharing a home and bedroom, you end up sharing responsibilities. From buying groceries to cooking a meal, you play an equal part in making the house function. It can either bring you two closer as you bond over the little chores you do together or you realize that it’s not your cup of tea.




4. Freedom:

Marriage is really tough because you have to deal with feelings and lawyers! Live-in relationships save you from those nasty situations. Every normal couple argues and even fights. As long you come back crawling to each other with an apology and makeup, it’s all good. But if you end up living your little ego cave, live-in gives you the freedom to walk out of the relationship without having to deal with the nuances of a broken marriage.
