What is the reason of the durability of indian marriages as compared to the western marriages.
Is it the ‘Culture’?
Is it the ‘Duty’?
Is it the ‘Love’?
Is it the ‘Respect’?
Choosing one from the above, i’d say ‘Duty’. I wonder, why ‘love’ and ‘respect’ did not come up in my mind instantly. I do not deny there existence…
But i deny, them being the prominent factor.
People in india, talking about the region where i belong “North-Western”, i see people, who hardly have love in their lives. they are just living because this is the way it happens…
Is this because of the way they were married, i mean is the ‘Arranged Marriage’ the reason?
Somewhere, deep down, i believe this to be the truth. Had there been a choice with them as to who they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with, the present scenario would have been totally different.
But the core question that still confuses me is the durability.
Is staying with someone without any feeling other than a duty, justified?
It makes me like the short term but true relationships in the western part of this world. They stay together till they feel like and let the other free when the love seems to be flown out of the window.
I just don’t know what is the answer to my question, but i wonder how the old generations have been doing this. I wonder whether the current and the future generations will entertain this…!
And my wondering continues…
