Arranged marriage ?
Yesterday my mom called and gave me a lot of E numbers.Hold on.I will tell you what an E number is.But promise me that you don't laugh.
In my place people don't usually go for love marriage.I mean it is wrong to fall in love.Here there is a tradition called arranged marriage.Our parents will choose a partner for us and we will marry that person.Earlier, the search was through brokers, who used go from home to home with lots of photos of grooms and brides.Now as internet is booming up we have lot of matrimonial sites.Coming back to E number, it is the register number of a person who has registered in matrimonial site(www.bharatmatrimony.com).We can get all the details of that person with that E number.So now you may have guessed that I have reached my "marriage age".True. :)
It is really a difficult process to find out your life partner.Next step after getting details of the person is matching of the horoscopes.My parents very well believe in horoscopes and they afraid that if I get married without horoscope match then my marriage life will not be a success.Oh God..Then comes his financial position,job,status,his parents jobs and character,his grandparents jobs,his parents' sibling's character and a hell lot of things.I always wonder whether I am going to marry his grandparents or him??
Why should we go deep into his family details and all.I don't believe that a person from a good family can always be good and a person from a bad family will always be bad.It can happen the other way too..Its time to get out of this conventional arranged marriage system.But as I have not found a person who suits me or as I haven't loved a person till now, I agree to my parent's wish and let them search for the perfect match.After all they are retired government employees and searching my partner is their new job. :)
So friends, we can have a discussion about marriage in your place too..Send me your comments okay..
Update: My laptop has reached my house.I will get it on 16th.After that I am gonna bore you with a lot of posts :)
