Cultural dating perspectives
A daughter is said to marry into a family in India.Marriage is not perceived as a relationship between two people but as a relationship between families and especially between the girl and her husband’s family.
One way of looking at this difference is that after marriage you tend to accept your spouse’s differences and habits more easily than when you have a choice.
Typically, the burden for the arrangement of the marriage is on the parents.
It is the father’s responsibility to choose and make the arrangements for a husband for his daughter.
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.
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.
