Council representatives interviewed by the Mail Today newspaper said the rules were intended to safeguard women from "bad elements" in society.

Council member Sattar Ahmed said "love marriages" as opposed to parentally arranged marriages, were damaging and a "shame on society."

"It is very painful for the parents, specially the girl's family, because such marriages dent their respectability," Ahmed said.

The villagers themselves were reportedly satisfied with the panchayat rulings, saying they would help prevent young women being misled and forming unsuitable relationships.

A good friend of mine had an arranged marriage, they hated each other with a passion. She would never sleep with him. Three years later they got divorced, took them that long to bribe the clerics to permit it, this was not Hindu but Muzzie in India.
His father was president of the Nepal region and it still took 3 years and millions of Rupees to get it done. 13.gif
Poor guy.
Edit: Technically it's the Terai Region.

Yes it's unfortunate and seemingly a result of social engineering. My kids are over 20 years old so evidently there was a breakup on the way. It's all good though, we're all friends here. This is my first marriage though and yes I consider myself lucky.
