Transcript However, if all signals are go and both sides wish or the union, then the marriage occurs. The marriage itself takes place with plenty of pomp and complex rituals, generally over a period of two to jfour days. Everyone from the very close to the very distant relatives are eager to attend and wish the couple happiness in their union. In my sister's case, her mother-in-law saw her when my family visited relatives in Pakistan. She met our family ■or a while as well as my ;sister, but did not approach us about marriage then. About six [months after our return rrom Pakistan, she (my jsister's mother-in-law) tapproached my parents tasking for my sister's viand in marriage for her Ison. At the time she was Jin California and told us that she wished to visit with us in regard to this jiecision. After about a month of contemplating land background- checking of their family, we (my parents and my sister) agreed to have the marriage take place. The wedding occurred in about a week after the iecision, on a Friday evening, with unusually few people and a very simple ceremony in comparison Ivith marriages in my parents homeland or my sister's in-law's homeland. The customs often nust adjust to different circumstances. Afterward the marriage, the two families gen- Tally tend to become closer and closer, eventually leveloping a very close bond between each other hat unites them into one group. The traditions of both sides are practiced together, bringing more trust and understanding between everyone, which in turn keeps marriages healthy and secure. The families serve as a network of guidance and resourcee for help whenever the couple needs it. This accounts for the reason why there are so few divorces in these countries. The main advantage to having an arranged marriage is that it eliminates stress on both the girl and the boy as to whom they are going to marry. This allows the men and women to concentrate on other things such as school, college, earning money for the future, etc. They do not have to worry much about impressing others constantly, by spending money and being showy, on the chance that someone may or may not take notice of them. Since dating, as it is practiced in western cultures, is not common in our native lands, illegitimate children and various sexually transmitted diseases are not a major problem for Mus- H lims in India and Paki stan. The advantages of an arranged marriage seems to outweigh other marriage forms; especially the typical Western marriage when you look at statistics in America for divorce rates and illegitimate children. In America, according to the Hammond Almanac, almost 50% of marriages end in divorce and almost a half a million illegitimate children are born each year. These statistics are overwhelming when compared to countries with predominantly arranged marriages, whose divorce rates and illegitimate children are so low in number that the Hammond Almanac and other similar sources do not even bother to give this information. ► Hyder Khan "Integrating customs when moving from one country to another can be difficult, or easy, depending on how one looks at it!"
