“Yes” he said, sliding his fingers into hers as she clasped them tight.
It was the start of a long and arduous journey, the conservative society would never accept this, they had defied all norms, it was an unholy union.
It was something they had agreed upon right from the time they started dating. They never expected it would happen so soon, 6 months it was since they first met.
Commitment would be voluntary, not obligatory, they did not want to be bound by marriage,
They had discussed about having a child though, should such an eventuality arise in their relationship.
The test results were positive, they were not ready for marriage but ready to have a baby together. They looked forward to a new beginning together, despite the challenges they knew it would be the start of a beautiful phase.

Author’s note- I was intrigued to read about the changing scenario of families 2 days ago on in “The Times of India”. An article covered 2 couples who choose to have babies without tying the knot. While they are committed to bringing up the child together and share their responsibilities they don’t see the need to bound by marriage which they think is not hassle free. It was an interesting article and got me thinking about the changing dynamics of society.
