Regarding the secrament of marriage as flashed on the f.b.on Nov.29,2010

Bishwa Nath Singh :
The Hindu religion has pleaded for sixteen different Sanskaras (sacraments) meant for different phases of life from the very conception to marriage to old age and death. The word sanskara in Sanskrit means ‘to cause indelible impressions on the mind and to develop every aspect of one’s personality.’ Therefore it is essential to understand and appreciate their significance and to derive benefit from their performance. Of the sixteen Sanskaras in Hinduism, the sacrament of marriage is the most important. Marriage influences the personality of man and woman as life partners, enabling them to take their rightful place in society. Only love can't sustain a marriage. It may not be a perfect institution but provides many safeguards like economic security, social status or bringing up kids together and one should not be embarrassed in seeking them through a marriage.

Marriage is a social union. It is legal contract too between people that creates kinship. It is an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged in a variety of ways, depending on the cultur...e in which it is found. Such a union is popularly called matrimony.People marry for many reasons like: legal, social, emotional, economical, spiritual, and religious. These might include arranged marriages, family obligations, the legal establishment of a nuclear family unit, the legal protection of children and property. Thpugh the marriage practices are very diverse across cultures, yet almost every known society has had some form of marriage between a man and a woman.The act of marriage usually creates legal obligations between the individuals involved. In some societies these obligations also extend to certain family members of the married persons. Almost all cultures that recognize marriage also recognize adultery as a violation of the terms of marriage .It is usually recognized by the state, a religious authority, or both. It is often viewed as a contract. Civil marriage is the legal concept of marriage as a governmental institution irrespective of religious affiliation, in accordance with marriage laws of the jurisdiction. If recognized by the state, by the religion to which the parties belong or by society in general, the act of marriage changes the personal and social status of the individuals who enter into it. Though ,it is said that marriages are made in heaven. Let us hope that the evolution of marriage that was evolved right from ancient pre-Vedic days will continue to deliver goods to people and society at large. Arranged marriages are traditional in Indian society and continue to account for an overwhelming majority of marriages in India Despite the fact that romantic love is "fulsomely celebrated" in both Indian mass media such as Bollywood and drammas and the arranged marriage tradition Arranged marriages are believed to have initially risen to prominence in the Indian subcontinent when the historical Vedic religion In the urban culture of modern India, the differentiation between arranged and love marriages is increasingly seen as a "false dichotomy" with the emergence of phenomena such as "self-arranged marriages" and free-choice on the part of the prospective spouses.
