Paths become soothing when there is someone who accompanies you throughout. Life is a path which is combination of flowers and stones. The flowers congratulate you on your success while stones laugh at your failure. But success and failure seems significant when there is someone, whom with you can share your victory and defeat because if that special person is with you then those dangerous stones hurt less and those flowers smile more. It is not easy to find that “someone” in life because devoting yourself completely for that one person matters a lot. Marriage is one of the kinds that brings two soul mates together and unite their different paths as one. There are two types of marriage; love marriage and arranged marriage. The basic idea of love marriage is that two people choose to be together without involvement of third party while arranged marriage is something which is planned by two families to bind their children in a relationship. Success and failure of both types of marriage depend entirely upon the behavior and understanding of persons involved. So it is intricate to say which is more successful however I am more inclined towards arranged marriage. So here are some substantial points which explain the advantages of arranged marriage.
A lot of people believe that arranged marriages is a good way for young men and women to find their life partner. However, there are those who are against this type of marital union and think that it impedes on young people’s freedom to choose. To know more about the two sides of this argument, you have to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of arranged marriages.
Advantages of arranged marriage :
Statistics indicate advantages of arranged marriage include fewer divorces. While the divorce rate for first-time newlyweds in the United States is nearly 50% before the first ten years, couples whose marriages were prearranged experience greater longevity. When it comes to choosing a suitable mate, fathers and mothers may really know best. Parents may possess the knowledge, wisdom and understanding of their own child's character and nature to choose a suitable life partner. In certain cultures, if the bride's family has a close relationship with the groom's, her parents are well aware of the socioeconomic status, belief system, or genetic makeup. The goal for both families is to enter into a contract that will prove to be permanent. Permanency ensures that both the bride and groom's parents and siblings will enjoy a long lasting familial and in some cases, entrepreneurial relationship. Intermarriage is not uncommon between two or three families that enjoy the advantages of arranged marriage. In such cultures, divorce is viewed as an insult to both families, as it not only breaks the covenant between husband and wife, but also between two clans or castes that have invested money, possessions and pride into the union contracted while the children were just infants.
