Transcript of Arranged Marriage vs. Love Marriage

For the most of Western history, marriage was not a mere personal matter concerning only husband and wife, but rather the business of their two families which brought them together. Divorce was not encouraged, but permitted if a man found some "uncleanness" in his wife. Difference between the two Arranged Marriage Continued A big question in our society today and what I have personally come to ask myself is which type of marriage is better, a love marriage or an arranged marriage. In an arranged marriage, the parents of the boy and girl decide what is best for the kids and arrange the marriage between them. On the other hand, a love marriage, something that we are most familiar with, is a marriage between two people who know each other and have come to love one another enough that they decide to get married and spend the rest of their life together. Most of the time marriage was also an economic arrangement. However, it was virtually impossible for a wife to divorce her husband. It was usually the patriarch who selected a bride for his son and who paid a "bride price" to her father. Arranged marriage also doesn’t mean that it is a forced marriage, most people in Indian, Asian, African and some European cultures allow for the youngsters to meet with each other, talk and see if they get along and prefer to be together, if so then they tell their parents and get married. According to statistics verified by UNICEF, Human Rights Council and ABC News, the average global divorce rate for arranged marriage is only 4 percent. The divorce rate for love marriage is a staggering 55 percent. Stats Also, a recent poll done in India about arranged marriage where 30,000 people were asked shows that 77 percent of people believe that arrange marriage is better. In the northern part of India, statistics show that 88 percent believe it is better. Having the same religion, linguistic group and socioeconomic background, allows for arranged marriages to last longer than love marriages. Arranged Marriage Statistics Data
