Arranged Marriages

Someone came to my blog looking for "How to check out a guy in arranged marriage". Poor girl, she probably found only this - A taxonomy of marriages.

She won't get further help from me, coz I didn't have to go through the motions of an arranged marriage. So let's help other Googlers - if you had an arranged marriage, do tell me how you "checked out" the boy or the girl. If you are single and looking at an arranged marriage, tell me how you intend to decide. If you don't fall into either category, but would still like to contribute your mite, you are very welcome. The comments section is open.

Very interesting discussion, I will be watching this space closely :) And nope I didn't go through it either so don't have any vishesh tippani

I dont fall into any of these categories ( Not at all) but still have an idea! Arrange marriages are not just the to-be-bride singing song or the to-be-groom havin uppittu, kesribath. They should interact with each other. Guess these days this is what is happening n the difference between arrange marriage / love marriage is gettin' much lesser than what it was!

Think the parents will allow the to-be-couple to discuss rather than them deciding. (Other than people in some remote village)

What say?

I think it will be possible to make out the characteristics of the guy when you meet them for sometime (unless they r too good actors). But ofcourse I would prefer it in a more casual environment (outside the purview of relatives/parents)

hey u get some interesting search keywords leading to ur blog.. i do too...!!! its weird to know, if u can track them :-)
anyways... a. marriage is too much of a good experience (not that 'love m.' isnt...hahaha).. fun all the way.. from listenin to songs to uppittu kesaribath..hehehe..usually within an hr face-face chat its possible to tell if all is well !!!! trust the intuitive gut feeling & well wishes of all family members.. thats it! :-) rest is fate really....fate is always risky coz the future is unknown in any case, but that again is the mysterious thrill!!!
