Love marriage is a marriage in which the individuals choose their own partner, typically with the consent of both families. An arranged marriage, on the other hand, is a marriage in which the families of the individuals choose the partner for them, with or without the consent of the individuals. In an arranged marriage, the individuals may or may not have met or have any feelings for each other before getting married.
In a love marriage, the individuals have typically known each other for a while and have developed feelings for one another before getting married. They may have dated or been in a relationship before deciding to get married. They often make the decision to get married based on their own feelings and desires, rather than being pressured by their families.
In an arranged marriage, the families of the individuals typically play a larger role in the decision-making process. They may choose a partner based on factors such as social status, wealth, or religion. The individuals may not have known each other well before getting married, and may not have developed feelings for one another prior to the marriage. They may have a period of courtship before getting married to get to know one another better.
Both love and arranged marriages have their pros and cons. Love marriages offer more freedom and autonomy for the individuals, but may not have the same level of social and familial support as arranged marriages. Arranged marriages may offer more stability and support, but may not provide the same level of personal fulfilment and happiness as a love marriage.
