In India, marriage is more than a contract. It is the joining of earthly and divine goods.
Marriage forges a new path for the next generation as well as riches, social standing, gratification, and refuge. It is also a wonderful melding of ideas, emotions, as well as hurdles and their corresponding resolutions.
Put simply, Indian marriages are not just a two-person affair. It is the coming together of family and community with love at the forefront.
However, as with all things in life, marriage is not black and white. When love and understanding ebb, heartbreak and sorrow flow. But does this spell the end of a union?
