Amisha Patel is making no bones to admit she is in love but would check her compatibility withthe partner before walking down the aisle. The actress speaks to HTTabloid about her idea of a relationship.

With Emraan Hashmi getting married to her girlfriend and Ash-Abhi getting engaged, it seems marriage has become a buzz word in film industry. What do you think?
I do believe in the institution of marriage but I am not in a hurry right now. I still have to do lots of things. But before getting married, I would prefer to check how compatible my relationship would be with the person I'm tying a knot with.

Does that mean you prefer live-in relationship over marriage?
There is nothing wrong in living in. It provides a platform to check the compatibility in your relationship. When you live in with a person, you know him as much as he knows you. There is no scope for cheating or false promises. After a few years, if both agree to live together for whole life, one can proceed to get married. So, I think I will also check my compatibility with the person before tying knot with him.

What if he is not compatible? Will you leave him.
It’s not going to be a one-sided affair. It’s better to have broken relationship than broken marriage. So, I don’t have any problem in walking out of that relation. I don’t want to suffocate and spoil my whole life and the same thing applies to him also. It’s a matter of mutual understanding and commitment. As long as this commitment exits, relationship lasts.

So, you are finally in love with someone?
Yes, I am in love and it’s a wonderful feeling but let me keep it to myself. I am enjoying every moment of it but it will transform into marriage only when I realize that both of us are committed to each other for the whole life.
