-I have the article “Why Are So Many Indian Arranged Marriages Successful?”
-The article is from 2015. The article is still actual even though it is from 2015 because there are still arranged marriages in India.
- Indian marriages are characterized by parents choosing potential wife/husband for their children, as we saw in the documentary.
Parents find the new partner for their children via their social circle, marriage pages or newspapers. It is very usual that the process lasts for a few days.
- According to a IPSOS survey from 2013, 74 percent of young Indians (ages 18-35) prefer an arranged marriage rather than free choice.
Other sources report that as many as 90 percent of all Indian marriages are arranged. It shows how popular arranged marriages are.
- Another impressive statistic is that only about 1 in 100 Indian marriages end in divorce, which is one of the lowest divorce rates in the world.
