    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.

    Congrats Joy dear , glad engagement is over and marriage in May. Yes true the wishes of the boy and girl is more important because they are going to live together. Now a days it has become very difficult to select a girl. Recently also a couple got married but after some months the girl has gone back to her house. A woman not only gets married to the man but to the family and she has to get love and affection from everyone. But in some cases the couple want to stay separate after marriage and now a days the parents also agree to that for the happiness of the couple and they also want space , in this way both are happy and they can keep in touch always and be there when needed. Hope I have not written anything wrong

    Dear Joylokhi,

    Thank you for this update. I will be sailing in the same boat in the near future. My son when he completes his Ph.D., we are going to be on the look out for a bride and I am not sure what he has in mind. Your guidance above would help me how to be patient and handle the situation with care and diligence.

    My best wishes to the happily married couple.

    Viswa
