Young Indian women support Live-in relationships, reveals a survey

"Ladko se door rehna." "Boyfriend/Girlfriend acchi baatein nahi hai."

For the longest time that I've known the Indian society, concepts like having male friends, sex, late night parties and relationships are all considered to be taboo. Thankfully times are changing and young girls are opening towards live-in relationships.

According to a recently organised survey by the new application, InShorts, more than 80 per cent millennial think that live-in relationships are still considered a taboo in Indian society while more than 47 per cent Indians are of the opinion that marriage is better when choosing between marriage and lifelong live-ins.

The survey was conducted in the second week of May, and captures the views of 1.4 lakh netizens -- 80 per cent being in the age group of 18-35 years.

"Live-in relationships, even after being legally recognised by the government, are a forbidden subject of discussion in Indian households. Our current survey was focused on capturing the sentiments of our Indian youth on such delicate issues," Azhar Iqubal, CEO and Co-founder, Inshorts said.

Other statistics reveal that 86 per cent Indians believe that lust is not the sole reason behind live-ins, while more than 45 per cent say that it is more of compatibility testing before marriage.

Also, the report mentioned that 45 per cent respondents say that since Indian society constantly judges unmarried couples staying together, any move by the judiciary to support this will not have any effect on their mindset.

Ouch! That's the harsh reality of the society, we live in. India is progressing but why aren't our minds?
