HOW DOES SOCIETY JUDGE A LIVE-IN SON-IN-LAW?

All social institutions and superstitions are man-made things, so is the way we think of the gharjwain. There is no any hard and fast rule that women should live in their husband’s house and men should not live in their wife’s house. A couple can choose any residence, wherever they feel comfortable. It is not that big a deal even if they favour living with parents or in a separate place of their own. I have no problems being a gharjwain. If a situation arises for me to choose this option, of course I am ready to accept it.
