Hinduism - How Accepting Are Modern Day Hindus Of Love Marriage?


In contemporary India, the term for a wedding that is planned by the bride and groom herself rather than by their parents or guardians.

Although love marriage is the ideal approach in Western romantic conceptions, many Hindus see love weddings as suspicious.

Children usurping the role typically filled by their parents is a stigma attached to love marriages.

It's frequently supposed to foreshadow the dangers of inter-caste marriage, as well as the probability that the marriage would be based on desire or infatuation, making it potentially unstable.

The family is seen as the cornerstone of society, and everything that threatens its stability is viewed with suspicion.

Modern Hindus, particularly in bigger metropolitan areas, are more accepting of love marriages.

Arranged marriages, on the other hand, are still significantly more prevalent.
