‘Traditional family system has been disintegrating widely and all the more it is emerging with new complexities. Ever-increasing anomalies in family relationships as well as marital life of the people have actually been deteriorating the quality of human life. There is a pressing need to assist our youth so as to make them sufficiently strong to bear with whatsoever circumstances of their life. It is desirable that family members understand the life adequately well so as to bring about coordination and integration in the family.
