Indian Marriage System
Questionnaire and Survey Work
It is said that marriages are made in heaven and celebrated on earth. The popular belief is true to many extents, because it is a special bond shared between two souls, who tie the wedding knot after promising to be companions for a lifetime. It is the physical, mental and spiritual unison of two souls. It brings significant stability and substance to human relationships, which is otherwise incomplete. It plays a crucial role in transferring the culture and civilization from one generation to the other, so that the human race is prospered. The institution of marriage is beneficial to the society as a whole, because it is the foundation of the family, which in turn is the fundamental building block of the society.
While the concept of marriage remains the same across the globe, the way of solemnizing it differs extensively the key point that it is an important and turning point of the life of the two persons who are married remains same. Different laws have been formulated in order to legalize and recognize the ceremony. Apart from the laws of marriages, the rituals following during the ceremony are in total contrast to each other. Something that is seen in the western countries cannot be witnessed in other nations in the developing world, primarily due to the contrast in the lifestyle and religious beliefs. One of the prime reasons for the paramount status of marriage is that it is the license for two individuals to live together in a society, without many limitations.
Coming to the subcontinent of India, marriage encompasses a number of meanings, apart from being a legalized way of uniting two people. It bears a lot of social significance. This is primarily because in India, marriage has been considered a way to bring the families of two individuals closer. Since the ancient times, marriages have been celebrated as ceremonious occasions, just like the religious festivals, wherein a number of rituals and customs are followed. A number of ceremonies are observed before, during and after wedding.
The basic idea and concept behind this topic is to find out the views and perception of the youth about marriage. So far, I haven’t come across a survey on the same topic; therefore I am interested and curious to know about the attitude and approach of the youngsters toward this topic. The research would include a general survey to study and examine the ‘youth’s approach and attitude towards marriage’.
