Kalyanam lingo

I am wondering from where the word "arranged" marriage came into usage. Are not all marriages arranged by people? And, why the word "love" marriage? Are not all marriages supossed to happen between people who are or have to be in love? I think using - "self choice" or "parents choice", "aunty's choice" or may be "matrimonial website aided" - but sick of the word - love and arranged!

  1. hehehe. Uniquely Indian words and meanings. Some people say "love cum arranged", as if the two are exclusive of one another.


I love your comments. Say it out, don't be shy!
