A family when lives together with all family members up to 2nd generation like grand parents, parents, uncle, aunts and their children is called a joint family . The importance of joint family is understood by the Indians since time immemorial.

But while young people are going advanced with their lifestyles, they are shy away from living jointly with their parents and grandparents. These people are usually missed a lot of fun, caring, elder guidance from time to time which causes a lot of problems in the future like loneliness, frustrations. In the joint family , all members are equally sharing all expenses, works and other things with the other members of the family so the burden of work will not be felt by any single person. All children get equal share of love, care, guidance and education by the elder grandparents so that they never miss anything in their whole life.

Similarly they can also easily get help from their parents. Small children will get teaching guidance from their uncle, aunts, and other family members. The sharing resources with the cousins and sisters help parents to minimize the expenses on their child. On the eve of big occasions like marriage, birthdays, engagements, anniversaries etc., the whole work can easily be shared with all members so that the event will be successful. This will bring down the burden from the parents.
