  • Arranged marriage in India

    Hello Friends.......

    Arranged marriages have been traditional in Indian society. Even today an overwhelming majority of Indians in India have their marriages planned by their parents and other family-members.

    # Arranged matches are made after taking into account factors such as age, height, personal values and tastes, the backgrounds of their families (wealth, social standing), their castes and the astrological compatibility of the couples' horoscopes.

    Marriage in India is considered a very important institution, with important financial aspects involved (dowry). Although most marriages are arranged, very few couples in India opt for selecting their partners by themselves, based on their direct interaction with those partners. This is often termed as "love marriage" in India. Love marriages tend to be more common in urban areas as contact between people of different gender outside the family circle is still frowned upon in the rural areas. Among overseas Indians, many marriages are still arranged with the assistance of the parents Even the so called love marriages in India generally happen with the approval of the parents, although they sometimes be reluctant to give their sanction for it.

    n India, marriage is thought to be for life,[3] and the divorce rate is extremely low due to societal and family pressures on the consequences of a separation. In India, 1.1% of marriages result in a divorce compared with over 45.8% for USA[4]. The arranged marriages generally have a much lower divorce rate[5]. Nevertheless, the divorce rates have risen significantly in recent years.

    "Opinion is divided over what the phenomenon means: for traditionalists the rising numbers portend the breakdown of society while, for some modernists, they speak of a healthy new empowerment for women."[6]

    An arranged marriage is effectively the result of a wide search by both the girl's family and the boy's family[7].


    Thanks.........

    Wedding venue in Ghaziabad paves the way for a memorable and heaven-like marriage. Marriage halls not only cater to the requirement for marriage parties or wedding hall when large scale gathering takes place during marriage ceremony but also offer low and affordable fees.

            Love and Arrange marriages both are good at their place. The main thing that matters is the understanding either it is a love marriage or arrange marriage.

              People's mentality is changing there is not doubt, but some where love marriage is not successful as compared to arranged marriage, because love is the relation between two hearts, two souls and two brains, it is not about physical existence,appearance and looks; In such a short age (18-25-27) we can not really experience the meaning of love, so it is better to go for arranged marriage because our parents know us better than we know about our self.
