Pure traditional Indian marriage where the bride and the groom sometimes are not fortunate enough to see each other before marriage...
The matrimony is arranged by the guardians (parents and relatives) of both the parties involved. This is a safe form of marriage for most of the people as they have someone to blame if anything goes wrong.
Normally these marriages are funded by the respective families.
Arranged marriage can also be called as love after marriage rather than love before marriage...
