Love Marriage Vs Arrange Marriage – GD Topic
LOVE MARRIAGE VS ARRANGE MARRIAGE
Marriage is a lifetime partnership between two souls, who come together to celebrate their journey of life with each other happily. In love marriage, individuals choose their partners by their own choice, they love each other and get married with or without the consent of parents. Whereas, in arrange marriage, parents and family members decide the future and partners of individuals.
“A GREAT MARRIAGE DOESN’T HAPPEN BECAUSE OF THE LOVE YOU HAD IN THE BEGINNING BUT HOW WELL YOU CONTINUE BUILDING LOVE UNTIL THE END”
STATISTICS – What Numbers have to Say?
Recent research conducted by statistic brain published on 7th February 2018, have revealed that over 50% of worldwide marriages are arranged. The research revealed that annual 26,250,000 worldwide marriages were arranged -making its percentage 53.25%. This means then global love marriages 46.75% almost making the two methods evenly split.
DESCRIPTION – Let’s take a Deep Dive
Both love marriage and arrange marriage have their own merits as well as demerits. But, the common quality needed in both must be the understanding between the couples. Love could blossom in arrange marriage and sincerity could be seen in love marriage if both individuals understand each other and accept their flaws. Besides, according to me arrange marriage would not be a good option for the modern generation, millennials are more sensitive and egoistic and less tolerant, unlike the older generation. This is the reason why today’s individuals cannot survive the complications of arrange marriage.
The concept of arrange marriage is not wrong just the millennials could not fit in. Love marriage, on the other hand, is the suitable option choice for the millennials because of its beauty of compatibility. Love marriage holds the characteristics which a modern couple is in search for. Love marriage allows individuals to know each other well and to absorb each other’s flaws through taking as much time as they want to get ready for marriage and this is what makes it easy to hold on to the lifelong commitment. Education and surrounding also play a major role in the preference of individuals. In rural and backward areas arrange marriages are still considered as a part of their tradition. Because of the lack of literacy, they still follow old beliefs and customs. In urban areas, individuals mostly prefer love marriage over arrange, due to their educated background.
After, all the above discussion, one cannot strongly favour any of the two marriages. One cannot say, love marriages are more successful or vice versa, as a successful marriage is not when a perfect couple meet, but it is when two flawed persons accept each other completely and happily. Whether it is love or arranged marriage will work only if both the partners are loyal and have an understanding of each other. Hence, the decision should completely lie in the hands of the individuals as it’s the couple who have to live with each other for a lifetime.
