With 'Ok Jaanu' releasing this weekend, I'm pretty sure that if not anyone else, but couples in a live-in relationship would go to watch it. Bollywood has been coming out with movies that talk about modern day relationships and how fragile they are, but are they really? Well, the answer to that question depends on every couple, because the definition of a "perfect relationship" is different for everyone. I personally believe that imperfections are what make a relationship perfect. From petty fights to cute make-ups, love is something that should be embraced for what it is and not be forced to be something that it is portrayed on the celluloid.
Live-in relationships came into the Indian culture long back, but it is still somehow frowned upon. Call it a personal choice or a regressive attitude; it has not been very appreciated in the society. But couples still do it and I think it is necessary to live with someone before you get married to that person, just so you know you both know what and where you're getting at. So here are 10 things you will definitely relate to if you are or ever have been in a live-in relationship with your partner.
You can be stupid in front of your partner and not worry about them judging you. This is one of the best things about a live-in for you can be totally yourself.
Everyday chores seem to be more fun as it will involve cute fights, laughs and a bit of chasing each other around the house. Household chores will add that extra romance in your relationship.
It's date night every night, unless it's a boy's night our or a girl's night out. You don't need to plan to go to a fancy place, you can just break open a bottle of wine, get under covers and rent a movie. There, you have that perfect date!
Say hello to more common friends which in return means more fun night with all night parties and chats. It's obviously more fun when you know everyone in the group you are hanging out with a bunch of people. A live-in relationship lets you know your partner's squad better.
You develop common habits like reading or solving puzzles together just so you can bond even more with each other. Try and read different books and discuss the stories with each other, leaving the crucial parts as suspense. This is a healthy practise for couples in a live-in as it serves as a great conversation to exchange.
