it brings them closer. Which means the problems couple faces in an arranged marriage make their relationship stronger.

On the contrary, people may argue that in arranged marriage, there is no place for love. Whereas love is the main component of every relationship. Therefore when people do arrange marriage they do not seek for love rather they hold up on the marriage with compromises and sacrifices and as the couple does not know each other it is hard to adjust after marriage. However to refute them it can be said that may be love is not the main priority of arranged marriage however gradually love grows in an arranged marriage. In love marriage the couple shows too much love from the very beginning therefore when they get married they face lack of love. On the other hand in arranged marriage, love between two people grows slowly and it stays long. For example, Bentley (2011) in his article said that the feelings of love in love marriages began to fade by as much as a half in 18 months, whereas the love in the arranged marriages tend to grow gradually, surpassing the love in the unarranged marriages at about the five year mark. Ten years on, the affection felt by those in arranged marriages is typically twice as strong. Moreover, when the couple knows everything about each other before marriage then there is nothing new left to discover after marriage, therefore it fades the relationship and often brings boredom. Ultimately this is another cause of separation.

To sum up, it can be said that arranged marriages are more successful than love marriage as it is socially compatible moreover in arranged marriage there is less desire hence it is steadier and in

arranged marriage the couple stay more dedicated to each other. To build a successful marriage trust, respect, love, understanding everything is required. Whereas in love marriage it is hard to find all the things, for this reason love marriages break very easily. Therefore if people like Saheeda will start to believe in arranged marriage then the chances of divorce will be lessen and the scenario of marriage in the society will be promising.
