Varun Badola shares his views on the set up of arranged marriage for middle-aged people and how love should be the prime reason for matrimony.
In the show, Niya is on a mission to get his father remarried and wants to see him happy in life. Amber finds his true companion in Guneet and the two decide to make their relationship official. Though their love story started on a different note, they found genuine feelings for each other.
Talking about marriage, Varun says, “Marriage is a life-long commitment. It involves responsibilities and many other factors as well. However, be in love marriage, or an arranged, a person should always seek true love in any companionship. Therefore, it is very important to know each other well before taking this decision. In the case of love marriage, partners do know each other well, but in an arranged set-up, people may not know enough about their to-be spouse and their habits or overall personality. Hence, I feel the courtship period is very important in an arranged marriage set up.”
Adding further to this, he said, “At the end of the day, whether it is love or arranged marriage, you must take a leap of faith and hope for a happy married life. Our society is evolving and so is the concept of an arranged marriage. Couples prefer to meet multiple times before taking a decision and discuss their expectations from marriage. Not just this, even families are okay with a long courtship period so that the bride and groom can get to understand each other better. It also allows couples to build trust and unconditional love, which are two other must-haves in a healthy relationship, and I feel that one should marry only when they are ready and not be so bothered about the age factor.”
