Live in relationships

Namaskar friends. I am glad I am not in New Delhi right now. The massive electric grid collapse in India swept people back to the dark ages. The cascading power outage cut power to 620 million people in the world's largest blackout before the lights started coming back on again. I woke up to this news today. To add to that, I met with an accident. It was my fault. I was pulling out of the parking lot and did not see the car in front. Luckily it was in the parking lot and was not at high speed. However, both the cars were damaged. My car is in the body shop and I am now driving a rented Nissan Altima. I went to the gym today after nearly 15 days of gap. I am so tired now. I wish someone could serve me some Chicken Biryani right now. I am craving for it. Welcome August! It feels likes I am just counting days and the month is over. Nothing "new" had been achieved. Aamir Kahn has made us all think now. Wow! the popularity of his show is amazing! Sadly, its over now. I hope that there will be a Season 2 of it. Congratulations to Gagan Narang, who won the bronze medal for India, in the 10-meter air rifle event, at London Olympics. You did us proud!
Do you agree that some songs just stick with you, because of the time frame it was made in? One such song for me is today's Song of the day: from the movie Tezaab. Madhuri was an overnight sensation with this movie for the song "Ek do teen'. However, the song below is my favorite for many, many reasons that ONLY some of my classmates can relate to. :-)

The more I think about a live-in relationship, I believe that, it will be the way of the future. A live-in relationship is an alliance that people enter into, in order to satisfy their various needs. Some people enter into one, because they believe they are madly in love. Others do the same because they believe it will help them understand and know their partner better and will also aid in sculpting a better future with this person. The best aspect about live-in relationships is that it allows you to find out the compatibility ratio between you and your partner, without admitting yourself into the constitution of marriage. Live-in serves as the perfect rehearsal for a married life. A main disadvantage of live-in relationship is social censure. Because these relationships have not yet been awarded the stamp of social acceptance, they are looked at with scorn. Many couples in live-in relationships prefer to call themselves married fearing rejection. This primarily causes problems in relationships. I loved the episode of Aamir Khan's  Satyameva Jayate, where he talks about this institution in India, where like minded, single (mostly senior citizens) can come and choose a partner to have a live in relationship with. Brilliant! India, is really moving ahead. Helps people to get out of  loneliness. Someone to share the ups and downs of life with. I know of a couple who are in a live in relationship for 25 years now. They were high school sweethearts. We constantly ask them, what is their secret. Their constant answer is, "not getting married." Now, this says a lot. Your thoughts?
