'Salaam Namaste', 'No strings attached', these are the mantras that the youngsters tell me. On asking them Why So? They would look at me and give a typical sounding answer “Uncle look at you, and also the other case in my family and one there and here and so on….”
“Live In” is also what they call. That is quite opposite in the commitments to Marriage. Funnily but sensibly enough, Opposite of “Live In” in other terms may also be called as “Die Out”. Which means if
But with “Live In”, Should one recall those happy ones as “…and they remained happily unmarried ever after…” Or I would call this situation as “United Un-tied.”
But in Live In what the new generation perceives as Win-Win I would perceive as a pukka “Lose-Lose”. To escape the misuse of law this solution has turned out to be surrogate solution. But both parties are actually loosing out on binding.
But, rather than a surrogate solution, I would still hang on with improvement in the law and making the marriage practices (like not accepting dowry) more practical through mass awareness instead of a blind laws. And recommend the 7 Habits of highly effective people and families and would atone the practice of the very divine 7 vows and rounds that make a successful marriage.
What do you all think?
