Jodiyan toh uparwala banata hai, marriages are made in paradise. How many times have you heard these words? As we enter our twenties, the entire world is concerned about our marriage. Marriage and love are so hot right now that they’ll never go out of style. While some people may require Sima Taparia’s presence in their lives, others may prefer to date her. But, hold on a second, why am I telling you all of this?
This Twitter user, for example, discusses how planned marriages are nothing more than a set-up between two families. Who doesn’t want two people to fall in love and call it fate?
One Twitter user shared their thoughts on the truth of arranged marriages, as well as whether or not they are based on love or destiny.
the way arranged marriage couples try to talk about how it was love and destiny that they are together, in their marriage dance functions, pre-wedding photo shoots, and wedding videos, is hilarious to me.— Agatha Srishtie 🌸 (@SrishtyRanjan) July 12, 2021
The statement sparked a flurry of emotions, with Twitter users debating whether or not the remarks were true. Let us examine what Netizens have to say about this argument, which may never end.
Destiny did bring them together. Whether you met at work, on tinder or in your living room; it was destiny. As for love, your parents loved you before they met you. This is similar. The arranged match dsnt begin with passion/infatuation/sexual attraction but love is entirely diff— Priya Samagod (@priyasamagod) July 13, 2021

Love na hua Maggie ho gyi, 5 minute me the instant ready.— Kapil Gorve (@kapilgorve) July 13, 2021

Waise bhi kitne percent logon ko sachcha pyaar naseeb ho raha hai yahan? Jee lene do apne apne dhoke logon ko 🙂— Vidambana (@Vidambana) July 13, 2021
Most of this “we were meant to be” is kinda trying to convince themselves that things can look as good as in a typical relationship. They are trying to make themselves believe and consider a separate entity from the parents who arranged them 😂— ローラ ハル (@lolatiffhur) July 13, 2021
As if love married spend seven lifetimes together, they find even one life time too much to spend together. When various marriages break left & right how PPL like u find time & intellect to criticise only arranged ones. I wonder if this is subtly an anti-Hindu/Indian behaviour.— Master YODA (@AlphaOm82382270) July 13, 2021
She didn’t criticise it as a concept, she pointed out the irony of talking about love and destiny so *early* into a relationship set up by one’s family.— Jahns is tired (@indianmuggle) July 13, 2021
This is criticism-
Arranged marriages are an extension of casteism and caste hierarchy.
It’s silly to assume there can be no love in arranged marriages.— Sharanya Biswas (@sharanya_biswas) July 12, 2021
Real hilarious ! I mean sauda mein feeling ka added package aa kaise jatah hain yeh sirf humara soceity hi jantah hain!— Rajesh Roy (@rajeshroy1929) July 13, 2021
In all honesty, I think those couples actually believe so.— Anjali Lal (@AnjaliLal14) July 13, 2021
Infatuation happens really fast and is mistaken for love all the time.
But whether or not they are mistaken, these couples truly believe they were destined and found love.
Have an arranged marriage we definitely fell in love within a month of meeting each other. It was destiny for sure.— Miss Anthrope (@darshic) July 13, 2021
Istg I just saw something like this. The couple met in May and is getting married in 5 days.— MOKSHA (@MOKSHA_KOTHARI) July 12, 2021
They have a page together for the purpose of their wedding. They have love written on every post 😭
Whatever happens, I pray we all meet the person we deserve.
