Live–in relationship pros and cons to make the right decision

by Richa Dhingra, Wednesday, May 09, 2018

Being in a live-in relationship was considered a social stigma until it was legally approved. A guy and girl living-in together are looked down upon by the society, especially elders. But let’s discuss what makes two people start living together, in the first place? Couples who want to get married but analyse the pros and cons of a living-together set-up go for this arrangement. Couples who want to refrain from the legal hassles of marriage start living-in. 

Supreme Court legalized live-in relationship and children as legitimate.

Often when we meet our partner, we put our best face forward. The other person barely gets to know the real side. Also when both partners are busy and don’t get time for each other, choose this set-up because by living together you get to spend some quality time together and enjoy their presence. If you’re planning to move-in with your partner, then here are the pros and cons you need to weigh.

It depends on two individuals to make their confines a paradise or a wreaking hell. Make sure you divide your finances and know your investments well so moving in or moving out won’t be a financial disaster for either of you. Emotionally, you need to be strong and value each others’ space to allow personal growth as well.
