10 Reasons Why Arranged Marriages are a Hit
Marriages in India are surrounded by a whole lot of hoopla. So, even though they say that marriages are made in heaven, the couple has to come together on earth, after all. Most women often dream of falling in love and being with their prince charming, before they finally settle down and decide to tie the knot. But we think arranged marriages could be quite a cool thing too where sealing the deal isn't as tough as it seems, like in love marriages. Here are 10 reasons why arranged marriages are a hit.
Family bonding: Arranged marriages are usually done with the support of the families where both the involved parties are of the same religion and follow similar rituals and rules which make it easier for the families to bond. After all Indian marriages are never really just an alliance between the boy and the girl, they’ve always been family affairs. And marriages are known to bring families together for the fun that unfolds.
Socially acceptable: Arranged marriage set-ups are socially acceptable since the boy and girl have been chosen after detailed research not only about their career and financial prospects, but also that of their families' and relatives. So you’ve got everyone agreeing to the match and making merry.
A fresh start: If you’ve ever been in a bad relationship or had a long standing one that didn’t work out, this is your chance to start afresh and wipe the slate clean. In arranged marriages, the couple usually knows very little about the other, so your past won’t bother your present much and you can make a fresh start into a new life.
Mutual respect: In a setup, where your parents choose the groom, they make sure they select only the best. And that means you both can have a mutual admiration society without judging each other. After all every relationship requires a certain amount of respect and arranged marriages are the best situations to instil that.
Commitment: In arranged marriages, everything is serious. You’ve got families involved and nothing stays just between the couple, thus the level of commitment is way more. So if you are one of those who is troubled by the fact that anyone can break your heart, perhaps you could opt for an arranged marriage.
承诺：在包办婚姻中，每件事都是认真的。家庭介入，而沒哪件事只是那一对儿之间的亊，如此这承诺水平就大大提高。因此，如果你属于那类受如下实情困扰的人 - 谁都能让你心碎，也许你可以选择包办婚姻。
Date and Discover: In arranged marriages, since the couple doesn’t know each other that well, they get a chance to date each other after marriage and discover themselves and their relationship. It keeps the spark in their relationship alive and makes it more interesting to slowly get to know your partner.
Appropriate Differences: The first and foremost condition of looking for the right suitor in arranged marriages is to see to it that there’s an appropriate age difference where the prospective groom is older then the bride, earns more than her and is at least a few inches taller. This may be a male chauvinistic attitude, but in the long run, it does help since men do have big egos that require stoking.
Financial stability: Financial stability is another factor that’s of prime importance in arranged marriages. This also makes sure that your future life-partner is not a drunkard, a jobless loser or someone who will resort to taking rash decisions.
Same set of values: Since arranged marriages are done after taking into consideration every aspect of life, the couple usually end up having the same set of values and beliefs.
No trial and errors: Unlike dating, arranged marriage is the final step and there isn’t a trial and error policy. If you are in it, it is for good and there’s no scope for trying it out for a while and taking it forward only if you like it. You have to seal the deal and then do whatever you want to.
