Arranged Marriage- An Adventurous Journey

Love marriages are said to be the ‘new’, ‘cool’ thing that is trending like a speeding train. Arranged marriages are often claimed to be pointless as parents believe that one should not talk to strangers but instead marry them. I see arrange marriages as an adventurous journey filled with exploration, risks, excitement and love that only grows with time. When you are married to someone, you don’t really know or even understand them, yet you eventually don’t fall but grow in love. As everything that falls breaks, but everything that grows gets stronger and becomes unbreakable.
I look at arrange marriage as a project assigned to people by God. Just imagine, how much fun it would be to get to know your partner by noticing the little things he or she does and figuring out his or her likes and dislikes. To try and understand what makes him or her happy or sad, so that you can do something to get that smile on his or her face. It’s like God has shown you the way to a beautiful journey, and now it’s on you to take it where you believe it deserves to be.
