we being in India have a differnt opinion on love marriages.. that is soon changing.. on a personal note i feel that people who are eligible for mariage have a right to chose their partner with whom they are going to spend the rest of their life's i feel it sholud not be desision that is forced..

Well I am from Canada so our thoughts and attitudes on love marriages versus arranged ones are quite different probably. We do not have a caste system here. As long as my children were happy then I would be too. I trust that I've raised them to be ok human beings therefore I trust in their own good judgement and choices. In the end we can only hope for the best.

Here in the united states, arranged marriages are rare and are often considered to be wrong. One of my friends in school was from India, and worked at a multinational company. His father was a preacher/pastor in India, who had moved to the united states for some time while he was a child before moving back to India. My friend agreed to an arranged marriage, because he understood that it was tradition, but made certain conditions like his parents must find a girl that had attended graduate school, traveled to the united states, etc. so that he could be sure that the woman he married would have some of the same views and experiences and ambitions that he did. The marriage worked very well for him and although started as an arranged marraige had lots of love and respect in it. This changed my view about whether arranged marraiges could work - it is interesting to see how different cultures can work!

well as per me i wud surely keep love marriages on the go well its their life so y shud we interfear for a short period of time the children need attention but after 14 each nd every child needs to get free they need privacy nd if parents donot give them that the child automatically develops a bad feeling abt them.
