Living in partnership is a foreign culture. After independence many of the foreign cultures were adopted to India. This is one of the cultures incorporated in Indian culture. So a person living with a woman without entering into an institution of marriage is called a living relationship. As per the Apex Court decision a man and women living together without a wedlock is not an offense in India. Live-in relationships are widely common in India’s metro cities. Still many of the Indian families are not willing to approve this kind of partnership. Compared to the old days, now it has many legal measures, even the same as marriage. As per Article 21 of the Constitution of India every individual has the right to choose their life partner.
