Time is flying and our children are growing fast. Even if your child is in just kindergarten, before you know it, they will reach marriageable age too. Very scary...right? We are seeing how the whole concept of arranged marriages is slowly becoming a thing of the past. Nowadays, children are asserting their feeling of self-identity from much earlier age. Whomever our child chooses as life partner, we all bless and wish that they should always be very satisfied and happy in life. Coming to the point..... Having a boyfriend/girlfriend or dating concept was not that common in our days but nowadays its become quite common. How comfortable are you when you come to know your child has started dating or has a BF/GF? Have you communicated your feelings to them? As parents, Do you or your Dh have any preferences or wishes on what type of partner your children should select for themselves? Have you tried to bring up this topic and communicate your wishes to your children? What would be your reaction on live-in relationship if ever your child wants to try it out? I am opening up this topic. Will join in with my inputs too. Just started off with few questions. Please feel free and not hesitate to add in some more if you want to. Lets talk on this topic more and refrain from judging others.
