Let us tackle the basic traits and the principles of a love marriage:

  • Usually, love marriages do not involve parental interference.
  • It usually begins with a casual fling and sometimes it is also love at first sight which is followed by a period of courtship.
  • case of love marriages, an engagement comes only after the couples decide to take the step forward.
  • Compatibility factor between the couple is tested prior to marriage.
  • Parental consent remains secondary in love marriages.
  • Stability depends on the couples themselves and so does the decision to marry or live separately over a period of time if the relationship does not work out.

On the contrary, arranged marriage involves:

  • Parental scrutiny of the family and boy and girl followed by an arranged meet-up of the prospective bride and groom.
  • Love eventually happens in an arranged marriage. Compatibility factor remains untested and therefore delayed, as the couples get to know each other over a period of time.
  • Parental consent is a vital part of arranged marriages.
  • Arranged marriages are dependent on certain external factors such as parental approval and the general approval from members of the extended family.

These are the basic outlines that separate a love marriage from an arranged one. What do you prefer!
