Arranged Indian Marriage is a Modern Myth

The Institution of Marriage in India has gone through several changes over the past several decenniums. What began as an arrangement to marry a minor child to another minor child from two separate families, developed into an arrangement to marry adult children after the British Government abolished child marriage in India. However, this notion of arranged marriage in modern times is wrongly interpreted as being an arrangement made by two families to marry off two young unmarried adults, without their consent.
