Love is a broad subject in itself. It is a great force in all relationship; it is indeed the greatest of all things. People say one can fall in love anytime, anywhere. But the fact is, we can only love what we know personally. A marriage can best describe whether love can be arranged or not. In India, it is seen that 90% of the marriages are arranged marriages. Arranged marriage is definitely an exemplification of arranging love. In an arranged marriage, you love the person you are supposed to love. So you love your spouse because he/she is your spouse and because he/she is the father/mother of your children.
In my point of view, once we are married we are bound to fell in love. A degree of comparability is what is looked for in the proposed couples. Though parents and matchmakers are not quite as blind to personal preferences as some may imagine: if the girl is beautiful, efforts would be made to secure a personable husband for her. Similarly the educational institution that the girl and boy have attended matters to a great extent in arranging what is considered a suitable match today. People meet, get to know each other and check if they are compatible with each other. In this way the love is arranged.
However, not enough importance is given to how two persons feel about each other in such marriages. How others can decide whom we should love, or not? Physical and emotional compatibility is overlooked in arranged-love. And if you grumble about it to your elders, they respond by saying “Love will grow with time.”
So surely love can be arranged. Love is the very essence whether it is arranged or not of the gospel.
