Auspicious event of life
Care, love, sex and social identity are very basic human needs and desires. To get social acceptance to all this, there exist a culture, in all religions. Marriage is the word, which bounds two souls, spouses, with social and interpersonal responsibilities. Pronounced with different aliases, Shaadi, Wedding, Nikah etc, all signifies a wed-lock that bounds the spouses with intimate, emotional and social duties.
A very pious and scared event that takes place when two people decide to spend their lives together; a promise that calls for the brand new beginning of two lives. It certainly differs according to culture, people, country, religion etc but universally called “marriage”. The basic term explains uniting two people together.
It is always a lifetime decision in each one of us lives. The quote that says “Marriages are made in heaven” is good when we just say it but practically it doesn’t do justice to itself. Such a decision must be taken with precaution, as it would bind two different people with a sense of responsibility to each other for lifetime. Being more than a Barbie doll game, it’s the game of identity, of responsibilities and of live with love.
Marriage is not just about love and liking someone but it is about complete sense of responsibility, respect, dedication, love, care and about sharing each and every moment of life with that someone. It is about being there at thick and thin. It is about trusting that person when he needs it the most. If we say it is like a promise meant to never be broken then yes we can say that. It is about accepting person with his complete imperfections that you are aware about.
We can say it is the compilation of friendship, love, acceptance, joy, support, wonder, care and emotions. It takes dedication to develop high level of honesty, trust, communication and respect with the partner.
Marriages are practiced in a variety of ways differing according to cultures, religion,country and so do all the customs,vows,values differ but the base meaning of uniting two different people as one remains same.
South Asian weddings are full of rituals and functions that last for a week. Family friends, relatives from both the sides participate in each and every traditional custom.
