Live-in relationships growing in metro cities

 
 
By Jaya Khare
 
In big cities live-in is a trending social practice and is considered hip-hop and modern by youngsters. Live-in has been in currency in the West for long but in India, it is a new import that is being imbibed blindly. It is forgotten that our social system is drastically different from the West. We have our own set of values and customs that have been guiding us for centuries. 
 
 
 
There is no point dumping the age-old traditions that are rooted in cultural values for something that is ethically not a thing to be proud of. Such fickle relationships undermine the noble institution of marriage and make people rootless and destabilised due to the lack of a central locus that could hold them in their integrity.
 
 In their obsession to achieve success and money, youngsters are striking relationships of convenience which are transient and uncertain. The risk and uncertainty are making people mistrustful of each other and relationships are breaking fast. 
 
A relationship is not a deal or a professional contract that expires after a point of time. The beauty of a relationship lies in its longevity and stability because that shows a person’s sincerity and commitment for another. If that basic premise is ignored, we are left with nothing to hold us together.
 
 Such disintegrated and wandering psychological status leads to social dissentions and isolation, which subsequently lead to depression and destructive activities. 
 
We have been seeing now how American youngsters are shooting their friends and colleagues the every other day. This is a sign of that isolation and lack of affinity with each other in society. We in India have to guard against such blind import of a faulty system. Just because it is a western thing doesn’t mean it has to be good. We must be discerning in our choice. 
 
The West appreciates India for the integrated family system that holds people together in a moral binding. The West is grappling with the problem of social disintegration and taking help of Indian spiritualism to find peace. Prospective lovers must choose wisely and thereafter live together forever in a family bonding. 
 
There is all the time an option in the world to pick and choose, but once chosen, that person must be celebrated and each others’ achievements and shortcomings shared through good and bad times. That is the essence of togetherness and a happy life which must not be diluted.  
 
A live-in relationship soon loses its sheen and leaves a person high and dry in a while. It is a glittery pitfall, a refuge for those who fear to take responsibility, which must be avoided if one wants to live a fulfilled life.- Window To News
