I got the inspiration to put up this post from a bollywood movie I watched some months ago “LUKA CHUPPI” which means hide and seek. It’s a story about two lovers who were cohabiting with each other without the knowledge of their parents. Some people frowned at it while some supported it including some elderly people. This got me thinking if live in relationship is actually good or not.
Live_in relationship which can also be referred to as cohabitation is an arrangement where two people are not married but live together. Most times it involves active or frequent sexual acts. This arrangement is increasing in almost every part of the world even among the people whose religion frowns at it. Sometimes, the cohabitation can be for a long term or a short term but in most cases, it’s long term.
Religiously and morally, it’s not so cool. Cohabiting automatically means frequent copulation and this is premarital sex. Even though premarital sex is a norm nowadays, it doesn’t mean it’s right. Most married people started their Marital journey from cohabiting. It’s working for some while it’s not working for a good number of people. Some even give birth to children while cohabiting before they decide to seal the union legally while some continue to cohabit till old age or till the grim reaper comes knocking.
Looking at it from another aspect, cohabitation can actually expose some things about your lover that you are not aware of. Some hidden attitude or some shady things. Cohabitation can actually make you decide if you can live with this person for the rest of your life. There are lovers that do well while apart but the moment they are together, frequent unnecessary quarrels set in.
It’s a two way thing! Now, I want to know what you think about live-in relationship. From your own perspective, is it good or not?
