What is Better: An Arranged Marriage or Love Marriage?

We had a love marriage—and 6 years later, it is still full of love.

We met each other in high school, and I had a massive crush on him. He was handsome, intelligent, funny…

…Imagine my surprise when I found he liked me back.

Our relationship moved quickly after that.

Does that mean I think love marriages are superior to arranged marriages?

Absolutely not.

I have seen many successful arranged marriages as well as many unsuccessful love marriages…

The problem lies in assuming there is one right answer for all—as if there’s only one correct path to love.

Each of us will find love in our own unique way, and to be honest, it’s not really important how we find it.

It’s important how we maintain it.

Once you say your marriage vows—both a love marriage and arranged marriage will have similar challenges, including:

  1. Finances
  2. Starting a family
  3. Supporting each other’s dreams
  4. Allocating Responsibilities
  5. Conflict Management
  6. Time Management
  7. Getting along with each other’s family & friends
  8. And More!
