I think now a days love marriage is common, but there are still love marriages which does not works? From my point of view, Both are good if the match is proper. Be it love or arrange, never upset your parent for this. Now what about you?

Mine own marriage is a arrage marriage and I am very happy with it.But I am not against love marriage.I prefer any marriage as long as it is successful.In love marriage we get the chance of choosing our own partners.In arrange marriage our elders select our partners with their blessings.But in arrange marriage also there is love but it is after marriage.None marriage can exit without love.In both kind of marriages there is love but there is time difference.

Marraige is like singing a duet song when you know nothing about the rythm and the lyrics. Both invloved should contribute perfectly. They gotta knw when to pitch in and when to stay mum. They gotta balance the melody when the other is out of tune. Be it a love marraige or an arranged marraige, if the partners are not committed, it just won't work. As far as my personal experience is concerned, I found arranged marraiges successful to a rate of 99 percent (All I know who went for arranged marraige are happily staying together), while the success rate of love marraiges was just around 55 percent. My experiences cannot be counted on as actual statistics of the globe. But I do believe in the role you play in your marraige. Nothing succeeds unless you put some efforts from your side. All the best...
