Wat u mean may b live-in relationship without marriage. Yes dis is an old practice which was prevalent in many parts of India hundreds of yrs ago, still prevalent in some parts. But d agreement was oral only and accepted by socy. As u said, it is possible to sign an agmt b4 starting a live-in relationship. With or without an agmt, such relationships r valid and d children born r also protected legally as per a recent SC judgement.

This was a common practise and legal in Gujarat,
until a few years back.
A male and a female could sign the friendship agreement and co-habit with each other.
Very often it was difficult to get a divorce for an estranged couple.
So this maitri agreement was undertaken, to fulfil their conjugal desires.
