Arranged Marriage

Times are changing and it is now the 21st century. People go out and meet others, fall in love and get married. However, the tradition of arranged marriages still stays.
In India, marriage is a bond between two families and not just two people. The parents would meet with the children and their future in-laws to make the decision for their children. There were often times where the first contact between the engaged would be at their wedding.
Nowadays, Indians in America have loosened the restrictions and have taken their children’s opinions into account as well. They let the children “date”, or talk with each other while the parents are present. Then the children can decide whether or not they would like to marry each other.
Now, even children have taken charge of their futures and go “spouse-hunting”, hoping to have some influence over whom they are to spend the rest of their life with.
I believe there is nothing wrong with the idea of arranged marriage, but children should have the option of deciding whether or not they want to be arranged. Marriage can be viewed like a plant, but it’s your decision whether you want to buy one from the store or to grow one yourself.
Having parents that have talked about arranging my marriage since I was still in elementary school, I have had mixed opinions on this over the years. Previously against it, over the years I realized it might be for the better. Having your parents’ insight on your marriage could be very useful, but it’s best to ask for it rather than having it forced on you.
