Is He The Right Match For You

Marriage is considered to be the most sacred of all unions all over the world. It is a coming together of two souls in holy matrimony, where they promise to love, hold and cherish each other till death draws them apart. A girl always dreams of her prince charming, her knight in shining armour, who will come riding his white horse and sweep her off her feet. As she grows, she is always on a look-out or that one special person, whom she can love and grow old with. While some are lucky enough to find their true love all by themselves, others depend on other methods of finding a match for themselves, like matrimonial sites or family friends and astrologers. Whatever the case maybe, a girl needs to make sure that her prospective life partner is suitable for her in every way. This holds true even in case of love marriages, where a girl needs to make sure that her beloved will support her in every way, even after marriage. So it you are on a look-out for your Mr. Right or are trying to figure out if your present beau is the right match for you, then here are a few points that you must consider:

  • He should truly love you: before marrying a boy, you need to make sure that he truly, madly and deeply loves you. He should be protective about you and should honour you for who you are. In case a boy starts being possessive or aggressive in the name of love, it is better not to pursue the relationship further, as it might lead to deadly consequences.
  • He should be financially stable: love may be the foundation of a strong relationship, but at the same time, you need to be practical as well. Make sure the boy has a sturdy job or business and is financially stable and economically strong, so that he can support you as well as your future family after marriage.
  • He should consider your opinion: make sure to marry a man who respects and considers your opinion as well while making a decision. This man will always hold you high and support and encourage you in your future endeavours.
  • Respects your family: while there is no doubt that it is the girl who shifts in with the boy and his family after marriage, this certainly does not mean that your family and parents should be left behind. Make sure that the man gives due respect to your parents and family before you decide to marry him.
  • Should be supportive of your career: if you plan to work after marriage as well, make sure to tell you fiancé about it. If the guy is supportive of your career progress, then don’t hesitate to marry him. However, if he tries to dissuade you from the same and do something that he approves, then it is certainly not worth it.

If you find a man who matches all the above given points, then congratulations! You have found your dream man! Don’t even hesitate for a second to start a life with him. Here’s wishing you a happy future!

Is She The Right Match For You

There is no one in this world who wants to be lonely. Every living being on this earth is finding a perfect partner, whom they can love, hold and cherish all throughout their lives. As we humans are natural social animals, this need and instinct of having a committed life partner comes two-fold to us. When we talk especially in context of India, marriage becomes a primal necessity. In our society, where concept like live-in relationships are still not widely accepted, it is important that you find a soul mate whom you can marry without a second thought. It becomes all the more necessary for boys to find themselves a perfect girl when it comes to marriages in India. This is so cause of the social set-up that exists in our country. In most cases, the girl leaves her house and single life behind and end up living in joint set-ups, where the boy’s family lives with the couple as well. We often come across matrimonial sites loaded with prospective matches, where men and their families are looking for “suitable, homely and fair girls” for their not-so-fair –or-suitable boy. But are these the only criterions that should be considered before going in for a match? The answer is a big, bold no! So it you are really on a look out for a perfect girl or are in a dilemma as to whether or not a girl whom you like is the right match for you, we have some points which you should consider:

  • A girl who truly loves you: marry a girl who truly loves you. And by love, we certainly don’t mean who agrees to all you whims and fancies. Marry a girl who loves you and supports you in your rights, but has the guts to tell you frankly whenever you go wrong. Only the one who truly loves and cherishes you will tell you right from wrong for your own good. A girl just agreeing with you in order to make you happy is not worth marrying.
  • Who is sure of herself: Marry a girl who is sure of herself. She should have the confidence of executing her decisions and standing by them in the long run. Such a confident and strong lady will prove to be your pillar of strength in case of facing the future challenges that life might throw at you.
  • Is adaptable to new situations: a girl who knows how to adapt to new situations and places turns out to be the perfect choice for a life partner. As in most cases, it is the girl’s lie which takes a 180 degree turn after marriage. Hence, an adaptable girl proves to be a better bride.
  • Respects your family: It is the girl who leaves her family and comes and settles with her husband and his family. Hence, it becomes very important for the girl to give due respect to your family members, even before marriage. Otherwise, it can lead to a lot of misunderstandings in future.

If your girl has these qualities, then go ahead and marry her without any second thoughts. Here’s wishing you a happy married life!

Complete privacy
You can contact the potential ‘match’ in your time through the options that you have provided on the website. Certain people opt for only emails so that you can start chatting there.

Regardless, all your information on matrimonial sites is completely secure and no third party person can even find out that you are on that website unless they have created a profile on that website themselves!

How Horoscope Matching Can Make Sense When it Comes to Arranged Marriages

Marriages are made in heaven and solemnized on earth. This is one belief that always gives us hope that someone, somewhere is made just for us.  Someone, who will love you, care for you and grow old with you. In present times, while there are many who get lucky in love and find their ideal partner all by themselves, there are others, who still prefer the old school charm of arranged marriages. In India, despite the rapid change in lifestyles and acceptance to change, arranged marriages still have an upper hand in comparison to their love counterparts. No matter how modern we may become, but we still hold our age old traditions and practices in utmost respect, which they totally deserve. One such practice, which even today, is considered to be an integral part of Hindu marriages is that of Horoscope matching. While the people going in for a love marriage prefer ignoring kundali matching altogether, it still holds dominance in arranged marriages. Even if we leave all the astrological aspects attached to horoscope matching aside, there are still many reasons because of which horoscope matching makes total sense in case of arranged marriages. Lets try and analyze a few of such aspects:

Kundali Milan
  • Gives the families a common platform: horoscope matching is the first step that is taken towards arranging a match by both families. When the families meet for the first time to match the horoscopes of the prospective couple, they get to know each other better. They get a clear picture regarding the family set-up and way of living of both individuals in question and the expectations they hold if the match is solemnized.
  • Helps predict compatibility between the couple: only those people and families go in for horoscope matching in present times, who truly believe in the whole concept of it. Hence, for believers, a matched horoscope is the ultimate evidence that the people in question are compatible for each other and will lead a happy married life.
  • Creates a sense of security between the couple: once the horoscopes are matched, the couple feel more secure towards each other. As in most arranged marriages, the bride and groom are strangers to each other before marriage. Hence, the sense of security that they get towards each other after getting their horoscopes matched helps build a strong bond between the two.
  • Gives peace of mind: in an arranged marriage, where the bride and groom do not know much about each other before marriage, a matched horoscope comes across as a blessing as it gives both the individuals involved some peace of mind that they are made for each other and that they will lead a happy married life together as a couple.

Arranged marriage can be a tricky thing, where the initial period of marriage plays an important role in determining the future of the couple together. With a matched horoscope at their side, this ride becomes just a wee bit easier. So work on your marriage and make it work.

  • It has no proven base: if we look into history of things, we may notice that horoscope making and matching is one thing which has proof to prove its very basis. Though astrologists claim that the predictions they make are a result of minute calculations, one can never be sure whether their claim is true or false.
  •  It is not fool proof: no astrologer in the world can claim the success or failure of a marriage as per the predictions that he has made. This fact itself is proof that horoscope matching is not a fool proof science.
  • The failure rate is high: There are many cases of couples who, despite being deemed perfect during horoscope matching, ended up having an unhappy married life or even getting divorced. As such too, the percentage of divorce cases in arranged marriages, where horoscopes were matched before marriages is increasing with each passing minute.
  • It does not have a widespread appeal: one cannot ignore a fact that astrology does not have widespread appeal and is prominent only in one sect of people, i.e. Hindus. The rest of the couples around the world do not have to rely upon horoscopes before marriage and still lead a happy married life.
  • Stars don’t determine the future, actions do: one needs to keep in mind the fact that we cannot rely on the stars and planets for our relationships to work. We need to nurture relationships with care, in order for them to work and our married life to be happy.

Its high time we stop relying on stars and make our future on our own. All the best!
