Changing a surname after marriage is overrated and if it has to be changed, it's better to create one based on the quality you admire in you...

Trust is fundamental to any relationship. That goes without saying. But trust doesn't necessarily mean that both partners do everything right within a relationship. Trust is the fact that  if something goes wrong, then you both trust each other to make it right. 

We are all fallible. And in this world where we all feel vulnerable, we need a partner who would place their trust in us to do right by them and by ourselves in the long run.

 

 

A relationship needs love, understanding, acceptance, respect, trust and many other aspects to keep it working. Would a relationship work without mutual trust? How much weightage would one give to trust for a relationship to be permanent?

I guess the definition of love changes with passing time. Once you have been in a long relationship you realize that you don’t even feel the need to converse anymore simply because both of you are even thinking the same things. This kind of love brings with it a sense of comfort, the acceptability of long silences without them being awkward.

However while change is inevitable, boredom is not. I suggest now is the time to pursue things individually rather than as a couple. Have you always wanted to learn to play the piano? Or did your wife want to pursue mountaineering? Find the joys that made you tick ten years earlier but you may have sacrificed them or put on a back burner simply because you wanted to be with your partner.

And once you learn something new, bring it back home. Share with each other. Discuss your victories and your failures. You will have more to talk about, more to experience and who knows you both might just discover a passion that you both share and then you can pursue it together.

I think if a relationship is getting stagnant, that stagnation is more to do with us as individuals because we don’t leave anything new for our partner to discover. All the best.

After years of dating and marriage, a sort of stasis has developed in our relationship. I know we both love each other but increasingly it seems like we are together because we are, not because we want to be. How do we rekindle the love in our marriage?

Since it's a relatively new marriage, this is the time the couple should set boundaries around their space especially if they are living in a joint family. The boy should take the initiative to talk to his parents and reason that they would like to spend time with each other for some time before they can plunge into a big decision like having kids.

Any marriage, love or arranged takes time to find its ground. If a counsellor is not an option, then having a like-minded adult from within the family could be asked to intervene.

I am sure they will have plenty of examples from within immediate families where couples have opted for children later in their relationship. Those could be cited as well.

And if all else fails, just stand your ground. I mean, really they won't pressurize them to have sex without protection. (I hope)

Relationship in family gets affected by personal decisions of couples and that is sad. Its been hardly 4 months since my best friend got married and they do not want to have kids now. Their family is upset about this decision and they blame my friend (the wife) for this. How do they handle this situation

Comment : Completely agree. I have seen both OKkanmani and Alai Payuthe and then watched the remake as well. Loved the originals. Yet to watch OK Jaanu but I agree that relationships have moved beyond living-in. And looking at Shaad Ali's previous work, I doubt that it will be different from the original.
South Indian movie remake - OK Jaanu, Will it work in the Box Office?

Will OK Jaanu do OKK?

A young man falls for an older woman from his family. Is it the experience and maturity that he seeks? Or is it misplaced excitement?
