Comment :

In a relationship what problem could be bigger than incompatibility or not understanding each other? A good worthwhile relationship can only evolve if there's both.And you want to deal with it because of it.It's going nowhere in the long run if both exist.A relationship needs to be nurtured and that can only happen if one or the other wants it to work so if there's no understanding or the will to understand each other it's only going to be going south.

Comment :

Which society is? Through the years we have had all kinds of relationships prevailing.Some more acceptable than other.A few years ago living together was oh such a sin, today it's par for the course despite being a holier than thou society.So yes Indian society might be shocked, grumble, chafe and gossip but will usually let those who want to indulge well alone.After all, even if society objects- and we are a hypocritical one at that- it is nobody else's business is it, other than the people involved?

Comment : Sambandham was a ceremony to establish the right to cohabit and acknowledge a sort of partnership between a man and a woman. Families arranged these, which did not depend on individual choice, though divorce could also be contracted. A woman could have Sambandham with a male of her same caste or of superior caste. But, Sambandham cannot be considered synonymous to concubinage. It was regulated because it could only be contracted after certain rituals for the brides, which were mandatory on the pain of excommunication.’

Comment : Editors please remove the term polyamory from the blurb...I have not used it anywhere in my article ,let alone here.It gives another entirely different picture of a coupling arranged through sambandham like the gentleman above said.Thank you
