Cultural dating perspectives
The truth, surprisingly, is the exact opposite, many of the youth in India prefer arranged marriages, as it gives them the time and the ability to enjoy their youth without the constant worry and struggle of relationships that comes about in western culture.The west generally believe that one needs to have live-in relationship or a long courtship before they can get married to know whether they are sexually as well as generally compatible or not.Whereas in the west people do not take the idea of marriage seriously until after they know a person for a number of years or feel like they know everything about the person.One way of looking at this difference is that after marriage you tend to accept your spouse’s differences and habits more easily than when you have a choice.Like I’ve mentioned above this article is not to convince people to consider arranged marriages or to say they are better, it’s only to show that what we perceive as a wrong way of living or of giving up ones rights is not the way the situation is looked at in other cultures.
Many Indians look at marrying a person they don’t know, gives one “a lifetime to learn to love them”, as opposed to the American ideal of learning a person inside and out before entering into marriage.
When people think of arranged marriages, they often picture a boy or girl forced into a relationship in which they have absolutely no choice.
However, in reality, this is simply not the case, before the marriage becomes official the potential bride and groom have the opportunity to meet each other and decide whether or not a relationship is something that they would wish to pursue.
A relationship not bound by marriage is more easily broken for the smaller nuances in life.
After marriage you tend to accept what you have rather than look for someone better as people often do while courting or dating.
