Updated on December 27, 2015

Arranged Marriage

Arranged marriage, a tradition followed in India.

In India, it is a dream and pride of all the parents to search and select a matching partner (spouse) for their son or a daughter and get them married.

In this case if they both get marry, there will be lots of issues, misunderstand in their life. The reason being, both have come from different environment and culture.

One of the recent surveys says that there are more than 1000 divorce cases filed every month in major cities in India. It wasn’t the case early.

Since now-a-days the world has become fast and people mentality moved to instants and varieties, it is expected from spouse as well. If he or she is unable to show innovations in their routine life, it is getting bored.

What is the reason for increase in Divorce in the recent times?

  • Intolerance:

    • In this 21st century nobody is willing to tolerate anything, nobody is willing to compromise on anything

    • Specification sense had increased very much

    • If they want something in some format, it should be in the same format, no negotiation or compromise

    • The same thing is expected from a spouse. If they don’t get the response as expected, they were unable to tolerate

  • Ego:

    • Both the partners are having equal egos

    • Nobody is willing to compromise on their egos

    • It is a myth that if you compromise on your ego, it is treated as you are defeated
