In His Own Words

About Him

I was arrange married 12 years ago. I met like 7
girls, for like on an average 30 min or so. I did
prepare before the meeting, what will I say and
what question I will ask, similar to some of the
respondents. While I did not maintain excel sheet,
I did capture notes later on. Most of the girls'
parents responded to my matrimonial ad. Being
from top engineering school with good job in
India helped, but only so far.
Did it work for me, well No. Marriage soured few
years later and still on rocks. In hindsight, it
wasn't a right approach to the most important
decision of the life. My ultimate decision was
based on recommendation from elders in my
family, her education, job prospects and
availability of time for family and children in
future (she was in teaching). One of the elder
liked the match due to physical appearance
compatibility e.g. how we will look in a photo
together (bad idea).
There is no way you can predict your future
compatibility in 1 or 2 meetings nor commitment
to marriage. I thinks stats are that arrange
marriages works better than love marriages, may
be so. But main factor to consider is 1. if you will
be respected for who you are 2. when life gets
tough, is he/she the one you want to be around
with 3. how much you are willing to invest in the
marriage.
In the end be as thorough as possibly you can,
but at the same time pls realize, there is a big
leap of faith here and your absolute commitment
is your best bet.

About His Ideal Match

First off, let me tell you, all arranged marriage
situation are not like what you are thinking. There
are cases were the boy and girl get to spend
more than one hour together in their first
meeting. Also, they need not decide in the first
meeting. They are allowed to meet again or talk
over the phone or chat online for however long
they want before they give an answer.
Having said that, yes there are people who just
meet up somewhere for a while and give their
answer the very same day.
I have a colleague who was going through the
arranged marriage routine of meeting boys in
cafes in the city and talking. She tells me most of
the meetings ended up being like a job interview.
Or the fact that they were too mechanical and
not emotional enough. The discussion were on
materialistic living (job, salary, house, food/
drinking/smoking habits) instead of actually
getting to know each other well.
My dear friend from college started looking out for
a life partner through one of those popular online
matrimonial sites. She did find a guy and it's been
more than a month since she first met him.
Neither of them have said a yes or a no. They feel
they need more time. They meet up mostly over
the weekends, talk about their lives, visit places
the other hasn't seen and talk generally. Of
course, their parents are wondering why they are
taking so long to decide, but that is not my point.
My point is they are socializing and taking their
time before making a very big life altering
decision.
Coming to my experience - I met one guy at
home for the first time. We talked for around one
hour. We did not ask each other any 'questions'
per se. Instead we were getting to know each
other. We talked about our jobs, what our
interests were, how we have come up in life, what
keeps us going, and we even laughed at some
funny incidents we ended up narrating for no
specific reason. We even talked about our families
to get a fair idea about our social circle and
lifestyle.
