have you ever had a relationship with anyone before marriage? Do you think that having relationship before marriage is acceptable in our society?

No. Neither my husband nor I had relationships with others or each other before we were married. To us, the marriage union is the most significant, unique experience in life, as two people pledge each to the other in a lifetime partnership. This wonderful experience will NEVER be known by those who do not keep themselves for their lifetime partner.

In Indian community it is still considered as bad.

GloomCookieLex, I didn't say it was bad. What I said is they are robbing themselves of a wonderful experience which comes after making vows of a lifetime commitment. I do not believe this can happen before marriage.

Obviously, things are different in your country. Here in America, it is rare you will find someone that hasn't had a previous relationship.

nwguy, you might think it rare, but there are still many, many, many who keep themselves for their lifetime partner.

Can anyone accept that his partner has had a relationship before marriage!!! I think it is not good to have such a relationship. Else, there is no meaning for marriages.

Yes I had a relationship before I got married and that too almost 2 decades ago so the society accepted that then, then I hardly feel society been rigid in present times. Now days I hardly see people getting married to their first relationship, every one have some kind of a relationship before getting married, its another thing that people name the fallen relationship with different names.

in society ike our Indian society it is definitely I say unacceptable.We think we want to have relationship only with one person.Thats what I think.I wouldnt really have physical relationship even with my fiance until we get married.it is important that we follow what is in ourculture than to adopt or copy other people.again if it is ones choice to have it.well what can we say.it is his own right!

I can't really answer that because I'm not yet married. But for sure, before you get married you are actually in a relationship with your fiance/fiancee. Right?
