The truth, surprisingly, is the exact opposite, many of the youth in India prefer arranged marriages, as it gives them the time and the ability to enjoy their youth without the constant worry and struggle of relationships that comes about in western culture.
The west generally believe that one needs to have live-in relationship or a long courtship before they can get married to know whether they are sexually as well as generally compatible or not.
The divorce rate in India is only 2%, compared to parts of the world where 50% or more of the love marriages end in divorce.
Cultural dating perspectives
A relationship not bound by marriage is more easily broken for the smaller nuances in life.
After marriage you tend to accept what you have rather than look for someone better as people often do while courting or dating.
It’s not like the couple see each other on the wedding day for the first time or just once before the wedding. There is usually a period of months or even a year or more after the couple are engaged and before the wedding, where the couple get to know each other, meet, talk and discuss the future.
This time after the engagement to the wedding day is sort of the dating period for the couple.
It might seem like an easy matter for a father to arrange his daughter’s marriage, but religion and caste systems make it a daunting task.
