Why a Joint Family ? 

A joint family is a fun way to in live every day. Each day is an affair of errands and each meal a celebration. This system is declining in our country. Granted there are disadvantages, but take it from me, who has lived her entire life in a family of 10, with cousins and relatives all around, in a small little world of our own, I wake up every day with a smile on my face and a feeling of acceptance. These are some of the best reasons why a joint family is a blessing in disguise-

  • Unity in Diversity –

With so many different personalities under the same roof, a clash of opinions is obvious. But you get to learn a lot and a fun round of discussion has never harmed anyone.

  • Spontaneous activities –

Whether a movie, a restaurant outing or a quick drive, you never have to worry about getting bored.

  • Fun road trips –

Road trips with always be entertaining, with loud music or a friendly banter. Memories will be in the process of making.

  • Food is always around –

You will never have to worry about being hungry. Your kitchen will always be stocked with a variety of good food to eat.

  • A ready made peer group to grow up with –

Friends will always be there for you in guise of your cousins. They’ll be there for you..!!!

  • Someone will always be around –

A parent will not have to worry about their child being alone at home.

  • Learn to adjust and compromise –

You will learn to embrace a little discomfort. Learn to forgive and forget. Adjustments will become a part of life and it will help to groom your personality.

  • Share your problems –

Someone will always be free to lend your problems a ear. They will provide a solution and you can be tension free again.

  • Responsibilities

You will learn to accept responsibilities and grace your manners and behavior.

This experience has groomed me to stand where I am today. I have my entire family to thank for it. We fight, we love each other, we stand for each other, and we have misunderstandings, but we are ONE.
