    In my views nuclear families are better than joint families because the youngsters of today are too busy in the rat race to adress the problem aged people in the family ...If it is a joint family there is too much of interference of the elders in the family who restrict the freedom of the youngsters..The bond is stronger if relatives live away as it is said ABSENCE MAKES THE HEART GROW FONDER

    Point: I think Nuclear family and Joint families have different aspects and everybody sees according to his current situation whether it is advantageous or disadvantageous. I too have been brought up in joint family but what I have seen, the experience was not good.It involves a lot of quarrels, different temperaments, views and preferences, lack of privacy and freedom, spying on each other, interruptions and restrictions specially on females due to which they lose their wisdom to grow in their life in terms of career and they keep on engage themselves most of the time into the kitchen as well as they became conservative .Hence being a girl I support the Nuclear Family where there is no restriction

    Point: Joint family work as an ideal society. In joint family, as we know that more people live together. This is the main advantage of J.F., because in life we face many problems nd at that time, who stand with me, those are not others. they are our family members. EX- if your wife is at home, suddenly she slipped from stairs and at that time you are out of station. at that time your father, mother, uncle, anyone who present there,

    Point: Marriage is the only institution where love is unconditional and life absolute. And so the parents of the couple should allow unconditional independance and absolute freedom to their children to live and enjoy their marriage in its fullness. As long as matrimonial indepenance is guaranteed, joint family concept would contribute more towards serving the cause ofcommunity development than the nuclear family system.
