A live in relation is no substitute for a family.
FAMILY OR LIVE IN?-- a sonnet


It’s difficult to say what virtue is
And what, in fact, does constitute a vice.
Why to indulge in a debate like this?
In my view saying this much will suffice:


Youth do want the company of someone
And the carnal pleasure he or she gives.
But yet commitment they want to have none.
It’s through commitment, society lives.

Without a family there is no home,
Family means sons, daughters and parents.
Outside countries like US, England, Rome,
The live-in a society resents.

Why avoid one’s responsibility?
Is family such a difficulty?
