Recently, while watching the trailer of an upcoming rom-com which deals with a provoking subject involving advantages and disadvantages of arranged as well as love marriage, my mind started generating views and opinions about marriage.
Despite being a rigid supporter of love marriage always, I also started thinking about the benefits of having an arranged marriage. Gradually, as I went through an in-depth analysis of the same, eventually I thanked God for making me realise that love marriage was, is and will always remain better over an arranged marriage.
Ergo, for all the bachelors and spinsters out there, who feel baffled on which kind of marriage to go for. And if you think to get into an arranged one, then this one is surely for you. Coz these 10 reasons will make you rethink before going for an arranged marriage. Have a look at these reasons!
How can one think of marrying a stranger? 'Do anjaane ajnabi, chale baandhne bandhan'. Yes, that is what happens when you decide to get into an arranged marriage. But in a love marriage, you know your partner in out. And as they knowing each other perfectly is one of the secrets to a successful marriage.
So do you still want to marry 'an Ajnabi?'
Ji aapko khaane main kya pasand hai? (What do you like to have)
When your marriage is an arranged one, these questions become an integral part of life, for initial years of tying the knot. Coz when you tend to tie the knot with a person you have met once or twice, how can you even think of asking his/her likes and dislikes.
But when you decide to marry a partner you have known for years, you don't need to waste precious moments of your married life in asking silly questions like 'Ji aapki pasand kya hai?'
After being in a love marriage for two years now, I always thank almighty for blessing me with such a great partner, who loves me for the way I am. Yes, that's what is the best thing about marrying a partner who loves you for what you are. In this way, you get to be the person who you actually are and love the kind of personality you are blessed with.
Are you a person who loves to accept challenges of life? Then you surely should get into a love marriage. Coz when you truly love someone, you happily bear the pain life gives you to achieve the love of your life.
When you marry a person, you don't get attached to your partner only. Because in our society marrying a person apparently makes you tie a knot with his family too. So think of spending whole life in a family you haven't ever been into. But in a love marriage, you know your partner and his family too. After knowing his family for an enough time, it makes you get rid of making any inconvenient adjustments post marriage.
When you love your partner deeply and madly, you never ever think of treating him badly.
Even in the present era, where girls aren't less than boys in any ways, Indian families still believe in dowry system. Not just illiterate section but well-educated families of brides have to pay a handsome amount of money to the groom's family. Be it expensive gifts like a car or a bungalow. Or a big amount of liquid cash, a girl's family has to fulfil each of groom's or his family's wish.
But tying the knot out of love never forces bride's family to pay a price for their daughter's happiness. In a love marriage, your husband to-be never does something that would hamper your lovely relationship.
Marriage isn't about a healthy relationship in bed, it is about commitment and loyalty towards your partner. Loving each other for a long time teaches you to stay loyal and committed to each other. In this way, love marriage becomes the safest option ever. *blink*
'Raja ki aaegi baaraat rangili hogi raat' this isn't surely the case when you marry a person out of love. Knowing each other perfectly helps you stay away from building castles in the air. Coz being true to each other never lets you expect something which can bring disappointment to your way.
As they say, priorities change when you step into your married life, and then you gradually tend to lose all your friends. But have you ever thought of the amazing life you will lead if you will find a best friend in your husband or wife or life partner in your best friend? *Ting*
