My 2 cents on JF VS NF


Joint Family

Pros : You will have a family to help you whenever in need. For eg. if there is a working couple with small kids in the family, there will be people at home taking care of children. So you don't have to rely on caretakers thus saving the expenses too.

Since there are many people in the house, the house chore duties can be delegated, so that it wont be tiring for single person and also will save domestic help expenses. (I know I am too worried about savings LOL but cant helpSmile)

Lastly, emotionally, its a very nice feeling that you have a big family around and also for moral support whenever you need it.

Cons : Conflict of interests with family members with traditional mindset defintiely leads to tensed atmosphere though not often.

Secondly, Your freedom is definitely restricted in joint families.

Lastly, Intrusion of privacy. Some people like to keep their lives as private as possible. So constant nagging from other family members becomes very irritating.


Nuclear Family

Pros : The biggest advantage is freedom, Yeah, you can have things in ur own way. One does not have to make big adjustments and sacrifices.

Cons : One has to rely on maids for maintaining household. And it becomes more difficult when both husband and wife are working. And with small kids around one has to depend on nannies. I personally don't like the idea of leaving ur kids with nanny as I don't trust people easily. 


Conclusion

 With little adjustments from both sides and giving enough space to each other the concept of joint family can very well be worked out. If the above condition is fulfilled, then I don't mind preferring joint family(not the overcrowded one for sure), else Nuclear family is a safe bet which obviously comes with lot of responsibilities and dependence.

If the individuals concerned give enough space and respect to each other, then joint family is good. Otherwise even with a few inconveniences, for me, a nuclear family is always preferable.

Sneha, very well put together post! ClapThumbs Up
I personally like the kind of arrangement 'Sarita ki Devrani' has. Paas ke paas and door ke door. That will help enjoying all the benefits of both worldsBig smile

I agree, both have their own advantages and adjustments to be made. However, it is very difficult to have a joint family where all are of adjusting nature.
