Well friends,today i have attended my relatives marraige in the morning and i was very happy to see all my relatives at one place because we met after a long break.Most of them were our family members who lived together in my childhood.My family was very big with 80 members,and used to enjoy alot at that time but after some days most of them were shifted to another places due to their personal reasons and now we are just meeting once or twice in a year.I missed my family members alot.What about you friends ? Did you ever enjoyed staying in a joint families ?

These days, things are running too fast and there is a possiblity of fights if we live in a joint family. I have been with my uncles and those were horrible experience and I won't like to be living with them at all. We got different places to live and to make matte worse, we don't even like to meet each other, no matter how important an occasion is. I have not seen my cousions for 8-9 years now. I have been with them for 7-8 years when we used to be living with each other! So, my answer, I don't like joint families at all. In fact I hate it!

It's very sad to here about your bad experience.But,i think if you can meet them once talk to them and solve the problems then it would be better for all.I know that its not that easy but nothing is impossible.

That is impossible now. The relationship has gone so wrong that it now can't be normalized. They have given us ample wounds and thus we can't be with them or even think of being with them for all eternity!

The concept of joint families is now totally obsolete. But I am a product of joint families. So I have a fascination for it though I believe that this is not possible now a days as our mentality has changed altogether.
