Arranged Marriages in India

In India the number of successful marriage rate is much higher than any other part of the world. The culture, tradition given from childhood makes a person able to understand the importance of relations. Mostly Indians get married through arranged marriages. Marriage is a necessary part of Indian society. Although Indian society is much affected by of westernization but still arranged marriage is most commonly used path. India's conservative ethos is so ingrained that surveys show that a majority of the young are inclined towards arranged marriages. Arrangement of marriage is responsibility of parents and other elder relatives of any boy/girl. Almost everyone in India still rely on their parents wisdom, foresight and connections to find the right person for them. Besides family, friends and neighbors many match making services, personals and now internet personals provide opportunity for people to get together. Generally social network is used for search for bride or groom who is having suitable social, communal & economic status. In case of arranged marriage not only two persons come into agreement with each other but it is merger of two families, their culture, tradition, customs and values. Husband and wife accept the drawbacks and loopholes of each other.

They have some social bindings and restrictions put on them by elders of their families. Even in case of some disputes elders greatly help them to solve the issues and make their marriage life successful. The presence of elders is a very big supportive factor in making a marriage life successful.

Marriage is a big event in India and brings social realignment, biological reproduction and exchange of values, traditions and wealth.

At last I would say lets stick with our custom, tradition and system created by our previous generations.
