In my friends circle, I have both married and unmarried couples. And to my surprise there is a stark difference between them. I saw, the couple who is living in were happier than the ones, who are married.

Is it really the scenario? Or my living-in friends are just an exception? Share views.A

At a basic level both are same, a couple living under one roof. What makes them happy or unhappy are the human emotions of love, likeness, compatibility etc. As long as a couple are compatible, in love, find happiness in each other's company, their relationship is a happy one. The moment when the spark starts to fizzle out and the day to day responsibilities adverserly affect their relationship (arguments over household chores etc), then happiness is going to going down irrespective of being married or living-in. The trick is to keep the spark alive and how much a couple long for each other's company.

its is simple. live in relationship was created by people who are commitment phobic. why do u guys even assume the partner will cheat or divorce you. having a attitude like that clearly states, you want to do things that will create problems in your married life

Bro forget about your circle nd all happy stuff. ." remember in live-in-relatn, exit is always an option easily and cheaply without any much hesitation " and in marriage its very expensive to exit.

Time being its ok, but in long run it doesn't work and later she may raise rape FIR if you don't agree to marry. Becareful

Live-in Couples have more understanding and more space which is beneficial in long run. About taking responsibility, live-in couples can be little hesitant. But then again it comes back to how much they love each other. Live-In or Married both the things is dependent on one thing and that is Love. Difference being, it is easier to move out of a Live-In relation!!!

Do you know any live-in couples living together more than 5 years and still living happily? Are these live-in couples looking for just a company, some one to talk to on reaching home, some one to quench your sexual urge or more. Did you get these answers from them first ?

That is fine but in long run it does not work because a relationship gets strengthened by taking responsibilities but in this case, the very purpose is not to take responsibilities. Also in this world every one needs a solid support system to be mentally and spiritually healthy but in this case support system is missing. Life is tough , very tough.....this is not a child play. Please ponder a lot before taking a plunge.
