Arranged marriages - beginning or end of love?

In India most marriages are, unlike in the west where people chose their bride or groom on their own, arranged by the parents of the bride and groom. At first their parents usually post a matrimonial insert in a national English newspaper in which they describe their children and how the groom should be like, where he or she is from, what language they speak and so on.After deciding on one of the replies to be the most suitable they arrange a meeting for the two families to meet at dinner. During this encounter the bride and groom are able to talk to each other for the first time and decide if the other person really is an appropriate choice. Only then after their children agree to marry the other their parents set an engagement date, or at least it should be this way. This way of arranging marriages already goes on for years in India and is seen as completely normal. In western regions this way of getting married is very outdated. People go out on dates and get to know each other, fall in love and marry at last. In India it is the other way around. At first they marry and then they fall in love. It is said that there are more divorces in western states than in India. This may be true but people should not forget that in India filing for divorce is still not acceptable in society. So many couples stay together although they are unhappy. But since their parents take care of the situation and make sure to pick a good choice by going into detail when describing the appropriate partner for their child, it is way easier to find somebody in India than in the western states. Furthermore the people searching for a marriage are they clear and specific, even with looks. Some would say that it is superficial, others would say that it helps clearing up any misunderstandings of what qualities the other is searching for. To sum up I would not say that an arranged marriage is the key to finding true love, people need to get up and find it themselves. But it could be a good alternative if the person is completely hopeless. At the end it is your choice you have to live with. From P.W
