Hello I Am Looking For Someone To Write An Essay On Arranged Marriages In India

Hello, I am looking for someone to write an essay on Arranged Marriages in India: The Way Marriage is Viewed in the Hindu Faith. It needs to be at least 2000 words.

This paper illustrates that as one moves across cultures from the West to the East there exists a continuum amid the concepts of Individualism and Collectivism. Collectivism is a yielding focus where life decisions are made taking the needs and benefits of the family, rather than the individual, into account. In ‘traditional’ cultures such as these families select the individuals to be bonded in marriage. In the conservative Indian Culture, marriage comes before love. It is believed by some and accepted by others that love can develop and two people can learn to live with each other. Indian marriages are based on a compromise where families of the groom seek ‘chaste’ women and families of the bride seek marriage proposals with good financial promises. Contrary to widespread incredulity in the West, arranged marriages do enjoy gratification and love as both men and women have been socialized to ‘adjust’ for the good of the family. This was confirmed by the outcomes of the study ‘Marriage Satisfaction and Wellness in India and the United States: A Preliminary Comparison of Arranged Marriages and Marriages of Choice’. This study involves the comparison of marriage contentment levels in arranged marriages in India to the level of marital bliss enjoyed by American couples that have married of their choice. The sample consisted of 45 individuals (22 couples and 1 windowed person) from the southern state of Kerala, India. Two mechanisms were chosen to quantify the results. The first one was The Characteristics of Marriage Inventory (CHARISMA). In this, 18 characteristics related to marriage are listed and participants have to first order the 6 that are most important to them and then indicate their satisfaction with each.
