Physical intimacy and premarital sex have become mainstream over the past few decades, giving rise to live-in and open relationships. The concept of ‘live-in relationships’ has received noticeable approval from the youth as well as from a small broad-minded section of the generation preceding ours. Even a decade back a live-in couple in the neighbourhood would make the neighbours curious but now it is more accepted. Indian youth are also more open to test the waters in a relationship through living in first, before committing marriage.

Men and women are today openly accepting their views towards open marriages and live-in relationships and continuing to live life normally.
