In India, marriage, a term including committed live-in relationships, is not the same it used to be. It's a much more live, dynamic and much-discussed entity. We have many more expectations of each other and of our marriages. And a good thing too. For marriage can give us a lot more than we think, if we configure it right. And the irony is that it's not too difficult to do this. But it does require us to think of marriage differently . Not as a sacrament, but as a relationship. Not as an instrument of bondage, but as one of bonding. Not as a space where we discharge our duties, but as one where we enrich ourselves and enhance our personal growth. Dr Vijay Nagaswami, Psychiatrist, Relationships Consultant and Author, knows a thing or two about the subject, having worked with a few thousand couples in over twenty seven years of Couple Therapy and Individual Psychotherapy, having authored four books on various aspects of marriage, having written articles in major national and international publications including a column for The Hindu called The Shrinking Universe and having conducted the "Connect Right" conversations, seminars and workshops groups of couples and corporate entities. If you would like to understand the New Indian Marriage better or would like to work smarter on your marriage, then you’ve come to the right place.
