The Changing Trends In Marriages

16 Oct

Marriage is a bond of two people who decide to spend their whole life with each other. Since traditional times, marriages have been an important part of the human society. Be it any country, community or religion, marriages are the foundation of human relations. There is a famous saying that marriages are made in heaven. This means that every person is destined to meet his/her life partner someday. While, some people do believe on this concept, there are also some people who do not find this statement practical enough.

It is indeed true, that some people do fall in love with someone during their lifetime and eventually marry them and swear that it was destined. But there are also some people who are not able to find their life partner miraculously and have to rely on different mediums for selecting the right partner. This does not mean that their marriages are not beautiful or they have to compromise. Instead, they just chose their partner in a more practical way and fall in love with them later.

In India particularly, love marriages are a comparatively new concept. Arranged marriage has been and still is the major wedding concept. Parents select a suitable life partner for their children and give blessings to them for a beautiful married life. While, earlier it used to take a lot of time to find a good partner for arranged marriages, today the presence of many matrimonial and matchmaking websites have literally made it possible to select a good partner easily without any problems.

Matchmaking websites provide suitable options to an individual and the person can get to know the other person by chatting, meeting and spending some time with him/her. The internet has virtually made it possible to find the desired life partner from any place, profession, age and status. While some websites charge some amount of money for their services, some of them are free and do not cost any money.

It only depends on the choice of the individual that which medium they want to choose for selecting the right life partner. Some may like to fall in love first and then marry while some may want to marry first and then fall in love. Both ways have their own set of advantages. Whichever concept they like the most, matrimonial websites are there to help in finding the right life partner. And who knows, if the selected person is actually the soul mate decided in heaven.

5 Types of People You Should Never Marry

4 Sep

It is a widely acknowledged fact that marriages are made in heaven. However, the choice of free will gives the option of rejecting or accepting a prospective partner. Everyone has their own preferences and dislikes, which is what decides the kind of person they want to spend the rest of their lives with. Marriage is a lifetime commitment and therefore, requires careful deliberation to make a calculated life-altering move. For this reason, it is important to choose the right man/woman for yourself to spend your entire life with, as any wrong decision vis-à-vis the person, would culminate into a disastrous and unhappy married life. Enumerated below, are 5 Types Of People You Should Never Marry:

  • Any professional matchmaker would advise you to avoid a person, who is not culturally compatible. Culture here, does not necessarily mean the geographical area, but includes different viewpoint about life, a variation in thought process and mindsets and a difference in attitude. Such incompatibility is sure to cause discontent if put together.
  • A person who lives in the world of vanity should be avoided. You do not want to marry a person who is engrossed in front of the mirror, and is not capable of holding a single quality conversation with you, as he/she does not have any time from fussing about their looks or themselves in general.
  • Career is an important part of everyone’s life, however, one who makes it the “only part” part of his life, is definitely not going to do well after marriage. People, who are obsessed with their career and work, will never make any time for their partners, which renders them incapable of accepting a spouse.
  • A person, who is interested in you only because of the way you look on the outside, should always be avoided. These kinds of people are fixated on physical appearances only and do not care about any factor in a person.They are always looking for beautiful faces and move from one to another, until they find one.
  • If you happen to meet a person via matrimonial services, and find out that he/she has lied about their biography, no matter how minimal it may be, it is always a good idea to avoid such people. If they cannot be truthful about basic information pertaining to themselves, who knows what skeletons are hidden in their closets.The information mentioned above should always be kept in mind while choosing the right person, as ultimately it is your choice that would spell out happiness or sorrow at the end.

  • Sagan or magni: This is the biggest function that happens before wedding. It is an engagement ceremony where the bride and groom exchange rings with each other. This function again is followed by exchange of gifts between the families of the bride and groom-to-be.
  • Sagan or chunni chadana: At this occasion, the sister-in-law of the groom-to-be presents chunni to the bride-to-be. She is then, fed with boiled rice and milk by her mother-in law. It is followed by a havan and Tika ceremony held for blessing the bride and groom.
  • Sangeet: It is the time when the true Punjabi character comes out, and the whole bride and groom family enjoy themselves in the loud music and dancing. Punjabi sangeet is loud, colorful, cheerful, and full of life. It reflects the true character of Punjabis and their philosophy of living life to the fullest.
  • Mehendi: In this ceremony, the bride’s hands are decorated with beautiful henna designs. The henna is seen as a good ‘shagun.’ Even, the groom applies a little bit of Mehendi on his hand. The henna color connotes love and luck.
  • Vatna: The ceremony is performed few days before the wedding. Vatna, a paste, made from turmeric, barley or chickpea flour, mustard oil and turmeric is applied on the bodies of the bride and groom-to-be. It follows a ritual bath performed in the presence of the respective families amidst the rhythms of traditional Punjabi wedding songs.
  • Chuda Ceremony: This ceremony is performed at the maternal uncle’s place. The bride-to be is put on with a set of red and cream ivory bangles, also known as chuda. The chuda is a marriage symbol, which she can take out only after a fixed period. Also, a havan is performed by the priest to put iron bangle with shells and beads along with a mauli on the girl’s hand. The ceremony ends with the distribution of Prasad.So, these were the ceremonies that happen before the wedding takes place. There are many more that take place on the day of the wedding as well as after wedding. But, one thing is common about all these functions are that they all are full of life and celebration which is enhanced even more with dance and music.
