Abstract Live-in relationships, is considered taboo in traditional Indian society, have gradually emerged as a significant phenomenon with far-reaching social and cultural implications. Live-in relationships, in modern Indian society, challenge traditional norms regarding partnership and familial arrangements. This form of cohabitation, wherein unmarried couples choose to live together in a relationship akin to marriage. Several factors contribute to the increasing acceptance of live-in relationships in India. Urbanization, globalization, and exposure to Western cultures through media have influenced Indian societal norms. Younger generations are more open to exploring alternative lifestyles and relationships. With more women entering the workforce and achieving financial independence, there a shift in attitudes towards traditional gender roles and marriage. Couples often prefer to test their compatibility before committing to marriage. This paper will cover social legal aspects of live-in relationships in India. Through amendments, the law has had enough of a chance to characterize these societal changes. It can't be static; while looking at the historical backdrop of how Hindu regulation developed, it is apparent that it was never static yet sporadically different to address the troubles introduced by moving cultural examples at different moments.
