Do You Want to Get Married?
Do you want to get married?But don’t know how to proceed?May Allah bless you and help you chose a life partner who become a delight of your eyes.I would like to share an advice on finding life Partner.
Traditionally,Parents sought the groom/bride for their children through local contacts or relatives.Then emerged the agents or the intermediaries and now,it is the age of matrimony.The world has become a global blace.Today everyone has an internet presence.
Matrimonial websites have emerged as the answer to the quest of finding a life partner. The Best thing about such websites is, one can decide about the life partner himself/herself and search without having to pester brokers or bother parents. It’s completely about the option to select what one wants – social status, income, likes, dislikes, caste, religion, geographical location, special cases, second marriages – you name it, you have it.
Some Statistics of Success of Marriage via Matrimony
The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and funded by eHarmony, examined the marital status and satisfaction of 19,131 people who tied the knot between 2005 and 2012.
Of the nearly 20,000 respondents, 35 percent met their spouses online. Within that group, nearly half met through online dating sites, “whose number of users has increased dramatically just over the past decade,” according to the research. Others reported meeting their spouses through social media, chat rooms, and e-mail, among other online venues.
And while the research found that nearly 8 percent of marriages initiated offline ended in breakups, couples who met online reported lower rates of separation and divorce — 6 percent.
“What is clear from this research is that a surprising number of Americans now meet their spouse on-line,” the research states, and “Meeting a spouse on-line is, on average, associated with slightly higher marital satisfaction and lower rates of marital break-up than meeting a spouse through traditional (off-line) venues.”
To be true, even I too am married via Matrimony site and so is my sister.My husband is an engineer and her’s is a dentist.Alhumdulillah, Allah has bestowed us with a loving spouse and a good family.Like most People even I didn’t believed in Matrimony.My matrimonial Profile was created by my sister on persuasion by my mother.And it was just for fun.My father began to get loads of call from suitable grooms.I remember he used to walk behind me with his diary containing the details of the groom.Since it was the first time anyone from our family was trying married via matrimony,everyone laughed at the idea.But eventually I got my life Partner who was meant for me.And for my sister we did the same.Alhumdulillah she too is married to a young handsome brother with a promising career.
So basically my Point is that we should not be judgemental about the matrimony sites.However there may be some fake trolls in the sites,but usually the people who really want to marry give their full details and you can search them and their relatives in Social Media
