On 24th of march 2010 one historical decision taken by The Supreme court has made much uproar in the Indian society whether legalizing the live-in relationship is justified or not.I think this decision has got many plus-minus points. It has become controversial. India is a country known for its family values. One who has gone through the novels of R.K. Narayan knows nicely what Indian values mean. Marriage has got the most sacred position. Everything revolves around the family. There are few religious gurus like Jain mini Tarun Sagar Maharaj who define FAMILY as FATHER AND MOTHER I LOVE YOU. In such a country where marriages are fixed by parental permissions and decisions in most of the cases and horoscopes ref. R.K.Narayan s THE BACHELOR OF ARTS and where marriages are not contractual refere the news of Bradd Pitt and Angila Jolie if I am not wrong it is quite interesting to witness its possible consequences. Among the intellectual class it is now taken as a post-modernist move guided by materialistic pursuits. The western countries have experimented it. What the result they have got. Divorces. We should not forget the satirical statement made by Oscar Wilde that divorces are made in heaven. It has got its resonance in the western society. Marriage institution has failed there miserably. Marriages are done wearing paper wedding gowns. They know the fragility and futility of this institution. They are skeptic. There doubts we can understand. For them it is a sort of experiment. knowing each other before marriage -is their custom. They are men of brain and not of blood. For them live -in relationship is the best possible way to avoid divorces and legalities associated with it. For us Indians it is a one-time event. It is something related with the divinity. It is a bond supposed to be made in heaven. It is name of discipline. It is a name of surrenderedness. It is name of oneness. It is a name of ultimate communion. We should not disturb our culture so easily. Such moves by the apex court of India seem to be pre-matured and blind. It has no vision no foresightedness involved. It has repercussions. Like demolition of institution like marriage insecured parents because in India old parents are mostly dependent upon their pro genies .In India we do not have bio-parents and homo-sexual daddies yet. Here living in Old-age home is not a choice but a compulsion. Living in Old-age home demoralizes the morale of aging parents. God knows how fast we are going to adjust with this new change.

Live in relationship is the most frivolous and dangerous living ,more so for the woman as she can become pregnant,contract AIDS and STD s.More than that Indian Society gives value to sex after marrige and treats like gutter PreMarital Sex and PostMarital Sex. Some Celebrities,Sportsplayers,Politicians Children and Rich people s children have Live in Relationships which is a convenient shortcut for uninhibited sex and no responsibility for the emotional damage when the couple break up.I strongly condemn Live in Relationships no matter how many precautions are taken sexually as the toll also is emotional and children born before marriage are insecure and do not respect their parents.Any circumstances and arguments,premarital intercourse and Live in relationships are harmful to the couple and encourage Premarital Sex and Sexual Promiscuity which I condemn to the core.
