    Here are the reasons to NOT send your daughter to college: 1. She will attract the wrong types of men. I share the common concern addressed to us, again mainly by angry women, that there are so many lazy men in our society. But what mystifies me is why girls continue to marry them and […]

    8 Reasons to NOT Send Your Daughter to College- Part1

    Probably the most controversial and rejected position we have at Fix the Family is that parents should not send their daughters to college. It is even more vehemently opposed than the submission of wives to their husbands. Both of these positions we have are a threat to the trophies of the feminist agenda, so the […]

Memorable Day of Life

| February 26, 2015 | 6 Comments

Couples make elaborate wedding and honeymoon plans to make wedding the most memorable day of life but none for a life together. Additionally, many are looking for spouses to marry without looking at their responsibilities in a marriage.

How ridiculous would it be for a person to go to a job interview without having read the job description? Equally absurd is the way many people get married each year without any knowledge of or preparation for the realities of marriage.

A wedding ceremony involves exchange of vows, gifts and a public proclamation of marriage. Wedding celebrations vary between traditions, customs, cultures, religions, ethnic groups, social classes and countries. The average expenses of a wedding range between 5 lakhs to 5 crores in India. A person, in India, spends one fifth of the wealth accumulated in a lifetime on a wedding ceremony.

In the United States there are approximately 2.5 million weddings each year and with about one marriage per family every 20 years, an average of 10 million marriages is celebrated every year in India.

A majority of the grand weddings are organized by wedding planners. The size and grandeur of the wedding indicates the couple’s social status. Apart from the formal wedding venues, weddings also happen in exotic Indian and foreign destinations, offering a memorable experience to the families and their guests.

Millions and Billions are spent on weddings and thus the intention to make weddings the most memorable day of life is fulfilled. However, there’s no guarantee how long this memorable day would last. Many of the grandest weddings have been on the rocks in a few years resulting in pain and suffering.

However, should the focus of attention be moved from “one day glory” to life-long happiness, the entire planning, efforts and its fruits would be altogether different.

While the wedding planner plans for one day, parents and those seeking a life-partner should spend time in focusing their efforts to:

  • Establish Compatibility
    Explore spiritual and religious beliefs
    Develop personal, couple, and family goals
    Discuss role expectations
    Discuss living arrangements
    Discuss about children
    Discuss Finance
    Discuss common issues related to the role of parents and in-laws
    Learn communication and conflict resolution skills.

Efforts in educating on the above and resolving detrimental issues would certainly help in making not just one day a memorable day of life but assist in making rest of the marital journey smooth and enjoyable.

Do you believe in making one day a memorable day of life or the whole marital journey most memorable?

    Very true. Correct analysis & points. Much needed.
    People just see the family background, financial status, looks, skin-color…even the horoscope!
    But, need to match the roles, responsibilities & expectations too.

    This is the first time I’m reading such elaborate stats on marriages :) super… Thanks for sharing :)

  3. WOw! those are some stunning facts. 1/5 of their savings on wedding?! No wonder wedding is the next big business in India.

    I agree mate, there is more importance assigned to a day and the celebrations of the day than what it actually is meant to be and where it is supposed to lead us…

      Unfortunately true. Sometimes the entire savings is gone into the wedding celebration and parents spend the rest of their lives paying interest on loans and make their lives miserable. The day becomes memorable but rest of life becomes miserable.

      Thanks Vinay.
