    What is your opinion about live in relationships?

    Concept of Live in relationship in the western countries is well known. Now with the legislative changes the concept has started spreading in the conservative Indian society. While hubbers from India are also welcome but it would be better if the audience from more experienced western word narrates their experiences so that we can now its good or bad effects in advance rather to repent afterwards.

    I'm not a fan of this type of relationship, but I am older and come from a different era.

    As far as I'm concerned, if I'm good enough to live with, I should be good enough to marry and my partner should be willing to make this type of permanent commitment.

    If it's a matter of trust, then there's no relationship anyhow.

    I think whether or not it's a good idea probably depends on lots of factors, such as the quality and seriousness of the relationship, reasons for cohabiting, etc.  My husband and I lived together before we were engaged, but we discussed that marriage was on the agenda.

    I think if you're in a serious relationship and both agree on the terms of living together than it's probably fine.  On the other hand, if living together is being used to test the relationship or simply to save money, then it's probably not a good idea.  Similarly, I would think that if one of the people thinks it's "sinful" to live together or somehow wrong, then it's probably best to wait until marriage!

    It's been reported that 52% of all weddings that currently take place in the U.S. are between couples that (have) lived together. Having said that the reason why the majority of people move in together is (not) to get married.
    Quite often it's a case of two people feeling like they are "in love" but are (not ready) to get married. One person is always at the other person's house. One day they reach the conclusion that it makes little sense to be paying rent on two apartments. The combination of convenience and financial benefits of sharing expenses with someone you love is the deciding factor in (most) instances.
    Naturally there are some people (women) in particular that believe if you live with someone they won't marry you. The truth is if a couple (really) wants to get married they will get married whether they lived together or not! Most relationships do (not) lead to marriage whether you live with your mate or not! If they did we'd all be married to our Jr. high school sweethearts! Living together is a (choice) that should not be made with any "hidden agenda".  Awhile back I wrote a hub on this subject. http://dashingscorpio.hubpages.com/hub/ … ng-Married

    "Live in Relationships" is still a Taboo in conservative Indian society, and will remain for the coming years. Though it is acceptable in some parts of metro cities like Mumbai, Delhi where influence from west is more pronounceable. But it's a sin for normal Indian mind, because it's not this way we have been taught. And there is nothing wrong with the Indian culture, i think, because if we have been brought up this way, why don't carry on like this, keeping in mind things are normal here without adopting this activity.
    I have seen my friends scolded by their parents and demanded to stop this at once for doing this activity.
    And i know Indian couple who lived together before marriage, and are happily married after, so IT's all about what goes inside your head, your thinking.
