Q.

Cohabitation or live-in relationships, a common phenomenon among working professionals in metros, has crept into Dakshina Kannada district, among students of mostly professional courses. About six years back there were a few cases. At present it has become so common that people have accepted it as a part of life, unless it involves their own child.Anita, a lecturer, said: "When I first came here, I was shocked. Now, it's too common. It is common among the faculty too."- What is your take on this?

The difference between living-in-relations and the traditional way of living-in-marriages , is the deteriorating moral standards of the present day generations . It reflects the failure of the parents to inculcate the moral values and standards into the life of offspring . The burden of materialistic life dictating both partners to work for an extreme comfortable living coupled with the vanishing culture of joint family system where other elders take the responsibility of ensuring moral standards plays a big role reflecting the current deviation . But such practices and surrogate families are long in existence abroad and it is a question of time it spreads in India too . The concerned individuals would simply brush aside the objections of the elders by saying it is their personal freedom to live a life of their choice . There is very little the concerned parents can do in such cases . Would the parents take more pains in teaching the right morals to their kids alteast from now on ? ...more

What is not an acceptable behaviour for our children is surely not acceptable in case of any others' children also. Such a differential acceptance is hypocrisy.

Yes that is a new trend.... catching up the world over. It is up to individuals to decide how they shud live. The merits and demerits would be known only after some time. Any way the institution of marriage too is rotten in many ways ! Thats why this new experiment is spreading !
