Slightly eccentric, quick witted woman who finds exceptional in the mundane and brings it to others with the help of her best friends- words.

Trust that he or she would be with me when I need, if not able to help will be my strength.

Judgemental attitude and humiliation.

Comment : We have to accept that a girl's skills, values and education all comes thanks to those parents. You cannot expect them to severe all ties and forget them just because she now has a husband. If she rings them for suggestions how to celebrate her husband's birthday or make his favourite food or how to engage with relatives, what's wrong? Secure people are inclusive and not exclusive. Expecting them not to keep a healthy communication shows the new family's insecurity.

Parents are the cocoon one loves to embrace. Once a girl gets married, she looks up to them for support and love but there are times when their possessiveness can shatter their child's dream. Have you ever come across such a case? What can one do in such a case?

Comment : Friendship is a large hearted relation. You adopt your friend's friend too. Primarily Vasopressin dominated which is calm.

Romance and marriage are passionate- territorial, insecure, jealous and violent. Oxytocin driven, not ready to share the attention of your love interest with anyone. Much less a potential competition.

The comfort with friends often makes partners feel left out and ignored. This is the reason the thicker a friendship is, more likely it is to be suspected.

Do old friendships break up once one friend gets married? Like it happened with Kajol and Karan Johar? He announced at his book launch yesterday that chapter is closed.

Comment : Live-in relations were termed as Gandharva Vivaah. There are tribes in North East where marriage is solemnised only after elopement and a live-in period. In Mahabharata the Shakuntala story is a famous example. Dushyant forgot her and she faced the heat from the society. If coming together is exciting and drifting apart is painful. Since personalities are dynamic, what we like today becomes a burden tomorrow. Marriage is a social contract that ensures that mood swings do not affect the children. The changed partner doesn't ignore the need of time, energy and resources required to raise children born out of the union. Marriage is a live-in with responsibility.

It might be a matter of debate whether Lord Krishna and Radha lived together or not, but live-in relationships find ample support in Hindu mythology. To mention one, Bhima lived-in with Hidimba and had a son with her by the name Ghatotkach, who later fought for the Pandavas and was always considered a legitimate son of Bhima.Does it mean that they fall in the grey area between legal and illegal? In other words, is it so that the Indian society and its political alter ego - the Indian State - do not approve of pre-marital sex and live-ins but still tolerate their existence? Much of the hue and cry against live-ins is the byproduct of a misplaced sense of culture and decency. After all, marriages are nothing but socially endorsed live-in arrangements.
