With the passing years, India has developed the concept of love cum arranged marriage. This kind of marriage is fast gaining popularity. The very concept of love after marriage is a beautiful and soothing feeling. However, Indian society still prefers love after marriage instead of love before marriage. Thus came about the idea of arranging the marriage of a couple and then allowing them to spend enough time knowing each other. Another view was that the couple chooses each other and receives their parent's approval of the relation after a though rough discussion and formal talk.
Love - arranged marriages carry the concept of the couples choosing themselves and the parents give after checking on their child's choice. The love marriages have become much prevalent in this country, but there are still many families who believe in unity of choice. The parents are liberal enough to allow their children to choose their own life partner, but the children too keep the dignity of their parents and ask for their consent before taking the decision of marrying the person of their choice. In this kind of marriage, no mental grudge is seen on the either part of in laws, rather a lovely relation of mutual understanding is developed between the new member of the family and the elders.
Love - arranged marriages not only bring happiness between the couple but also between the two families, because the entire association is based on mutual understanding and love.
