Brahmin girls dating
When you date someone, you form a connection that you hope is something that will last.A connection that mimics the boundless trust that one hopes a marriage is built upon.To my parents, how can you make such a connection, and if it ends poorly simply start a new connection with another person?To a certain degree I don’t completely disagree with them.I couldn’t imagine telling someone my innermost thoughts to only ‘grow apart’ after a year or two.In my parent’s mind, these same ideas naturally progress (though to a much more stringent extent) to marriage.People think arranged marriage currently and immediately jump to the conclusion that there is an aspect of force involved, where there is no choice but either party member.
Then to try to do this again and again until you meet that one person with whom it finally lasts? I don’t and probably never will understand the idea of casual dating. In my parents’ minds, marrying for love is an indulgent concept, one that ‘Westerners’ reduce themselves to because they have no control.Just as importantly, however, he needs to be from a Hindu, Brahmin family and his family’s astrological signs have to be compatible. Result: the above process just repeats itself until it results in a marriage.Once these criteria are all met, then a dialogue can be started between the parents of the potential bride and groom. The point of a marriage partner is to have a person who you can trust with anything.I’ll preface by saying that my parents had an arranged marriage; their parents did before them and so on.I’ll also re-establish the idea of an arranged marriage, for it has changed even from my grandparent’s wedding to what will be my future.
I could never hide such a large part of my life from my parents. My parents would eventually find out and while conversations of disownment have never really been brought up, I honestly don’t figure that’s out of the question.
