Hi friends, Its been sometime since i logged into IL- the reason being that i got busy with my son's engagement. This is an update on my earlier thread where i had brought out my frustrations of having to finalise an alliance for my son. Finally, as wished by him, he communicated with a match that we had initiated thro' horoscope matching etc sometime in 2014. He got to know her thro' common friends, talked over a period of 2 to 3 months, and when he had made up his mind, told us we could talk to her family etc. Both came down for a brief period for the engagment ceremony on 25th Jan. and marriage in May 2016. I am just updating on this, as there may be many more parents who may be in similar position when it comes to an arranged marriage now a days. A lot of patience is required from all sides. Ultimately the important thing is that the wishes of the concerned boy and girl should be the main consideration.
