Marriage Wars: The Root Cause

Share
Posted: 13 years ago
Now a days, lots of mariages have so many problems that most eventually end up in divorce.
Two people, who have committed their lives to each other break up in an instant.
People can make a book of excuses on why a marriage would not work. But if we look closer, many people do not work to save their marriage because they just want the easy way out. What could be the cause of this? Have they fallen out of love? Or have they realized that they were not meant to be?
These marriages that get broken are often love marriages. So does that imply that the traditional style of arranged marriage is more effective?
What could be the solution to this? Start the trend of arranged marriages again? Or keep the trend of love marriages that 50% of the time end up in lots of trouble? Or combine these two trends into a love-arranged marriage?
What do you people feel about this? Do you agree with the statements above? What kind of marriage would work best?

I'm too young to be married, so I dont have much experience..still I think, that nowadays the couples are not ready to sacrifice and try and adjust. We grow up in a world, where we are taught to fight and grab, but in marriage we "have" to give up somethings or make some changes, when neither hubby nor wife is ready to make them...the marriage reaches the rocks...Earlier, atleast in India, women were naturally expected to be as forgiving and sacrificing...so there was not much of a problem..but now nothing of that sort happens..everyone is fighting for their rights...so 'sacrifice' is not a word in their dictionary..that is the root cause of marriage wars!

And nowadays we have the option of divorce, earlier we didnt have that option at all, so even if life was not so good, they 'had' to try and lead a happy life.

Luv-Marriage or Arranged? I dunno, let the experienced speak Smile !

love marriage on rocks... one reason.. people might have fallen in love with the "Illusion of Love" and later... its turns out to be something else..i.e. expectations not met.

but i don't think so that love marriages are more prone to end up in divorce... if people kept their "Eyes open and be Realistic/Practical" when got married. and later worked on it... i mean... falling in love is easy but being consistent in love is difficult... but they can work very very well...and this also applies at arrange marriages

in traditional marriages family members put a whole lot of pressure to make up the marriage like "No matter wht happens...family ki nose na kut jaaye" Dead to hell with that family ki nose Angry if 2 people aren't happy and have the option of divorce... why to keep themselves in a continuous torture???

Today's woman is independent... she wants to be EQUALLY treated... if compromise is demanded from only woman side... are these men made of steel that can't bend slightly!!!?? EGO hurts Dead but now its more of two-way-traffic... if men don't try to compromise and learn to work on marriage ..women don't have the "Tender/contract" of always doing "Compromises" to the extent of losing their own self-esteem and respect!

But this DOESN'T MEAN that women are only held responsible for broken marriage...if so.. then this is Gender Biasness Dead ... Men are EQUALLY responsible tooo.. so ask both the sides for accountability...

P.S.. sorry for the overdose of "Dead" in the postLOL...just wasn't able to control itTongue

[quote=Iron]Marriage performed traditionally have been more successful as the family back grounds were checked.[/Quote]

even this can't be the criteria of the success of an arrange marriage.. at times even when family "Statistics" are checked still marriages don't work due to various other reasons.

I saw this movie yesterday. Anubhav- *ing Sanjeev Kumar, Tanuja by Basu Bhattacharya. One dialouge from movie-

Situation- Sanjeev Kumar and his friend were talking about other friend couple that was going to have divorce. Sanjeev said that these two people (couple) are very good individual, very mature, have similar frequency and they get along with all friends and relatives so well then how come they cannot get along with each other? and his friend says this --- "Zindagi ke har sambandh mein tarakki hoti hai. Bas ek pati patni ke sambandh hai jinhe 'taken for granted' samjh liya jaata hai. Unhein na toh badhane ke liye koshish hoti hai na toh tarakki ke liye."

so well said. No one tries to make their married life better and just take it for granted!!

Ei thanks so much for your replies!
Im new in this section so I didnt expect anyone to reply! Embarrassed

Anyway, my views are that people now a days hate compromise and because of that, neither boy or girl can get a long after marriage. Both people should work together as a couple and meet in the middle, both need to compromise. The problem with love marriage is that things tend to change after marriage and what you think to be love may just have been a crush or something. Im not saying that all love marriages are bad but a lot of them end up. arranged marriage is also a no for me. I dont agree with the idea of marrying someone you dont know. This could cause a lot of problems after marriage too. The only solution to end all this is to combine both love and arrange marriages. Love someone and let the family know about it and let them arrange it. Then let the family, including you make the decision of whether the person is good or not. Or let the family find someone and you get to know the person and if you find that chemistry between you two, then it could be fine too. Let it be a family affair, not just your own.
