It is so much better to live in a joint family. There is no loneliness and the kids are always taken care of. They learn to adjust and accomodate. Unfortunately I live in a nuclear family coz of no option. 

I live in a nuclear family with my husband and children. Sometimes either family side visits and the house becomes a happy joint family. I wonder what it is like living in a joint family as opposed to a nuclear family? Is there a better option? Any experiences?

it is the dream of every parent to have a lavish wedding for their children. Many times they spend beyond their means. This is common in India because children are considered to be the private property of parents, that's why the honor killings. The boy and the girl should have a final call on how they want their wedding to be. It's their  wedding after all. And it is a very sensible  decision to have a good amount of savings before you enter wedlock. Call both sets of parents together, convince them to give you all the money that they want to spend on the wedding. You can buy the stuff for the house, travel and do so many things which will last long perhaps the entire life time.

I recently got engaged to my long time girlfriend. The two families are more than happy for us. Unlike most love affairs, we did not have to go through the troubles of covincing our parents about our relationship. However, the parents now happen to disagree with us on the way we wanted to get married. They have already started to prepare for a big fat Indian wedding. On the contrary, we want our wedding to be a simple affair; a court marriage followed by dinner. We both don't understand the rationale of spending so much money to please the society. More importantly, we don't want to enter into a marriage penniless. We both are having a tough time convincing our parents for this. Help!
