If we are not careful, it can lead us to be taken advantage of by unscrupulous people who pretend that the feelings of love are mutual, only to manipulate us for their own financial gain.In such situations, the dishonest person ends the relationship once they have taken all they can from their victim.In the United States, divorce does not carry any social stigma and the option is easily available whilst in India, the opposite is true.
Those seeking a love marriage may suffer rejection and relationship breakups many times before they are successful in finding their life partner. Additionally, for those who are shy or suffer from social anxiety, having their partner provided for them is a huge relief.
Some of the factors parents will consider during their search for a bride or groom include religion, caste, reputation, wealth, vocation, health and whether or not the potential partner is Mângalik.
The arranged marriage vs love marriage debate is one that will may never be resolved.
In the past, almost all marriages were arranged however in these modern times, many are opting to break from tradition and instead pursue a love marriage.
In a study performed by University College London in 2004, it was found that the feelings of love suppressed certain areas of the brain that are responsible for critical thought.
Love can cause us to be overly trusting, distort reality and make decisions we normally wouldn't make.
This dispels the myth that arranged marriages are more financially stable.
If you are concerned about money, you have the option of not dating somebody who is not educated or wealthy.
In my opinion, nobody can claim that one type of marriage is more successful than the other.
