A major question for which an answer is urgently required for the youth all over the world at present is to know whether to choose cohabitation or love marriage? Love marriage has been the practise for quite some time and is accepted as a normal thing. Living together or cohabitation is a new concept which has not been accepted as a normal thing. After great consideration and arguments living together has been accepted as an interim step during which period one is able to determine whether to proceed with marriage or leave it after some time.
Know about cohabitation
This period helps to understand whether the proposed partner is willing to spend the rest of his life with you or not. In other words the period of living together has been accepted as an intermittent period in which the proposed bride and bridegroom live together and try to understand whether they are having the same thought processes, ambitions and plans about the future life. In this article I am going to examine some of the key features and advantage of living together so that one can understand them clearly and accept it as it comes in his way during his initial days of family life.
Helps to understand whether you are compatible
Living together provides an opportunity for both the parities to understand whether the other person’s attitudes and perceptions about love and life are of the same type as that of the other one. It can simply be said that it helps in understanding whether the couples are compatible with each other. One will understand how to handle some special habits of the partner like sleeping with switched on TV, hogging the sheets etc. It also helps one to understand how to share life with the other one. If you are not able to adjust, luckily there is a way out for you as it is not too late and the wedding bells have not started ringing yet. Most people thing living together as a taboo, without understanding this practical and useful aspect of the system. As everybody knows marriage is not a walk in the park and every possible step has to be taken to prevent the possibility of mismatching. As live in relation is a safe step in this regard, people are progressively getting attracted to this system.
No need to fear the stamp of legal separation
When a marriage becomes incompatible the only way out is to opt for divorce. It is true that divorce helps one to end the horrible married life where husband and wife are at loggerheads always, but it leaves on you the most dreaded stamp of a divorcee. This stamp makes other people little hesitant to start a new relationship with you. But in a cohabitation system when it is not working satisfactorily, the partners are at freedom to come out of it at anytime they wish. It is hassle free and no legal procedures are involved in it or relatives will not dig their nose into your life.
Freedom to end anytime, if it is not working
In married life problems often starts without any reason at all. But, in cohabitation it is very easy to end everything the moment one of you decides so under mutual agreement thus giving you an opportunity to try and find someone better.
Marriage is not felt as a scary deal
It is often found that marriages often fail because one of the partners fails to understand its seriousness. Another problem with marriage is that one of the partners feels that the spouse is not matching to him/her. Universal increase in divorce rate is another thing that contributes to the apathy of youngsters to this noble institution. Living together helps one to understand how it will go once you get married. This decreases the fear about marriage.
Live- in relationship helps you to form stronger and deeper bond than in a normal relationship. Your partner’s likes and dislikes become your likes and dislikes. Live-in relationship helps one to find out how one can keep his individuality and adjust in married life by properly understanding the likes and dislikes of your partner.
