Why relationships fail

December 15, 2018 00:00 am

Life is a series of choices and modern civilization has transformed us so much that we need to rethink some of our default social choices that have existed for centuries. No social institution is as celebrated and imposed in Nepal as marriage. It’s so integral to our social system that most people seek for stable future through marriage and grown-ups who aren’t married till certain age are often looked down as outcasts. Every human being craves to achieve love and personal fulfilment through marriage.

Nepalese love the ‘big fat weddings’. So many delicacies to gorge on, so many gossips to toss around. From kids running around screaming to old folks getting emotional, there is a different kind of excitement in the air. And oh, the absolute favorite of all adults —  ‘Who’s going to marry next?’

I completely understand them; however, I disagree with the fact that it must be an ‘arranged marriage’.
