|Love Marriage Ya Arranged Marriage?|
Love Marriage or Arranged Marriage? Love Marriage is one in which a couple first falls in love and then, they get married. In Arranged Marriage, the parents of the two arranges their marriage and that is why the name Arranged Marriage.
Let me explain what I think with the help of two cricket scenes.
Scene 1: Last ball of the match, four runs to win, batsmen discussing something, bowler ready to bowl. All in readiness! The bowler balls, the batsman swings the bat and the ball goes over the long-on boundary for a huge SIX!
Scene 2: Last ball of the match, four runs to win, batsmen discussing something, bowler ready to bowl. All in readiness! The bowler balls, the batsman swings the bat and the ball goes high in the air. Keeper getting under it and he takes it!
Batsman in the two cases batsman was the same, bowler was the same, the match situation was the same, but, the difference was of that one moment, of the last ball! No one can say with surety that he/she will not love anybody or they will go for love marriage or arranged. It’s all a matter of chance.
Well, in my opinion, marriage is a relation that makes two lives a team for the rest of their lives and if understanding is there between the couple, then the nature of marriage does not matter at all. It is good if you know your partner for longer but, for this, love marriage is not the only option. The time is changing and the parents too are feeling that their children should marry the person they like and this is why the middle class mentality, today, is changing. Today, the love marriages are also getting the nodding of parents to go ahead.
Well, I said time is changing, but, there are many people, many families who haven’t changed or I should say, don’t want to be changed. Especially in the northern part of the country this can be clearly seen. The couples in love are brutally killed by their own parents just because they went against their acceptance. The Khap Panchayats in Haryana, UP, Rajasthan had been in the news for wrong reasons in the last couple of years.
There are two faces of a coin and both are different. But, the end result they make is a coin! I do believe it is the surprise that life gives to us when ‘one’ comes across ‘someone’ made for him/her, and the rest is all we have seen in the Bollywood movies. I do believe, if you love someone, tell your parents about it; convince them, make them know your love closely and if they give assent to you, alright then! But, if they are not fond of your opinion, then you have to make a decision, to take a step ahead or take one back. It’s on to you completely. If your love is clean, if it is pure, your love will win. Amen!
'Love' But 'Arranged' or 'Arranged But 'Love' Marriage! In my opinion, this is the question which needs answer and the answerer is none other than you yourself. What you say?
