wedding---oldLove vs ‘Arranged Marriages’

Marriage is a social contract between a man and a woman. Marriage is a legal contract between two persons that leads to kinship. Nowadays, one can hear about love marriages and arranged marriages, which have some differences between them.

Unlike arranged marriages, love marriages are more common in the Western World. Well, what exactly is an arranged marriage and love marriage? An arranged marriage is a marriage which is arranged by persons other than those who are getting married. On the other hand, a love marriage is a marriage which is arranged by the partners themselves.

In arranged marriages, the couples must the consent of their parents. On the other hand, in most of the love marriages, the partners will not need the consent of the parents, or elders.

Unlike love marriages, arranged marriages are more stable. Divorces are seen less in arranged marriages, and there is a great family bond.

In arranged marriages, the parents will be thoroughly investigating the background of the bride and the groom. They will be looking into every aspect, like wealth, health conditions and habits. In love marriages, the couples are not worried about any background investigations. It is just love that runs in their blood.

When talking about love, love has to be developed in an arranged marriage, as they will only know each other better after the wedlock, but in a love marriage, the couples have always been in love, and there is no need to develop it.

In arranged marriages, the couples may not be able to understand each other very well, and also not know the likes and dislikes of each other. Another thing that is seen in arranged marriages, is that men are always more dominant than the women. In love marriage, the couples get to know each other ahead of the wedlock. In such marriages, no one seems to be dominant person over the other.

  9. Guys! Both are good. People said, arranged marriages are much stable than Love marriages. We have to realize some thing here. Even in arranged marriage, there r some fights and misunderstanding between the couple, but their family members will stay with them and solve their problems (almost). But in Love marriages (no problem if both sides parents agreed heart fully), they r lack of parents support, due to this they will be in problems (ALMOST). U know one thing, all arranged and Love married people will face the same type of problems (with little variances) in their running life, arranged marriages looks stable (with parents and relatives support) while love marriages looks unstable (because they r lack of support most of the time). Naturally the most of the Love married people punished by their parents not by the society. In fact Love marriages better and more stable than arranged marriages if both sides parents r going to agree. In India, all most all parents thinking that, they loving their kids with no bounds. In return they (almost parents now a days) expecting kids life for their happiness and pride in the society. Mainly this role is playing in kids marriage time. R u thinking that, all people who had arranged marriage r happy? NO NOT AT ALL (some people r there but very less). U go and ask them and find out, how many people r crying silently (lonely) to keep their parents pride in the society.

    My suggestion: Don’t try to debate on this type issues. Both r good. Soon or later u r going to be a father or mother, so at least u should not give such a problems to ur kids. Love them and put them in good track but don’t expect their life in return. As a parent, u try to renovate your self all the time and try to reach them and try to understand your kinds life style and their thoughts.
