Many of our parents probably came together through some sort of arranged marriages, elopement or some were lucky to have love marriages then. Nowadays people start seeing each other from an early age regardless of approval from their parents or their other half’s castes and backgrounds. However, what Ive realised is though we like to ”get around” and make the most of our freedom to love another there is still a strong popularity behind arranged marriages. Having discussed this issue amongst my Nepali friends in the UK this further led me to believe that people will give arrange marriages a go provided that they get to know the other before anything materialises. Somewhat like a dating period. Sounds good doesnt it? Many people have their own reasons for following this method of marriage. Some do it because they respect their elders but some do it because they’ve lost their faith in love.
Love; I hope all the loved ones have a good Valentines Day tommorow even though I believe that tommorow shouldnt be hyped up that much. I dont know what will happen in terms of marriage for majority of us but it would be sad to lose faith in love. Nonetheless, I wouldnt mind giving arranged marriage a go 😉
