Hybrid Marriage

Fusion Or Mixture Of Both Love And Arranged Marriage

Hybrid marriage is an amalgamation of a traditional arranged marriage and a modern love marriage. This is almost like the best of both the world. All the good qualities from both processes are taken together. It can also be called as a modern arranged marriage or a modern love marriage.

Hybrid marriage can work as an introduction only process by the two families. The two families come together and agree to match their children. The families just do the initial selection process and introduce the two people involved and then it is up to the two young people to decide what they want to do next. A close ally or a common friend may also approach the families with a prospective match. The two people have complete control over all aspects of the decision making process and have full communication as well as meet each other as much as they want in their own privacy. Though, the idea is for the prospective couple to take their shots and decide what whether they wish to get married to each other or take a pass.

Hybrid marriage can also be based on just getting the blessing of the two families. Two people select each other on their own and decide to get married. They then take their proposal up to their respective families for their approval. The families have the right to accept or reject the proposal but still the final decision rests with the two people in question. Although, it is desirable to get an approval by the two families.

Hybrid marriage promotes involvement of families. Getting married and finding the right match is not an easy task. It is not uncommon for the young ones to expect or even ask their families to look for a match for them. This is when the families act as match makers. This is a very positive and healthy sign. It facilitates in making a joint and mutual decision.

Hybrid marriage also gives way to autonomy. It is not easy for families to always find the right match for their children. They sometimes turn to their kids and ask them to search for a prospective mate of their choice so that they can meet them and see if they would be the right ones. This in fact gives full power to the two people who wants to get married. They can go out and find their own mate and then just get a final approval from their families who would then evaluate the viability and prospects of a marriage.

Hybrid marriage is becoming a new trend in many cultures that were once only open to traditional arranged marriages. In fact, it is a modified version of the concept of arranged marriage. Over time, the boundaries between the two types have started to become fuzzy. This is something that is in most cases fully acceptable to even the two prospective candidates. This indeed is the best form of getting married in the traditional societies. The concept is so good that it is only expected to grow even higher. It is already replacing the traditional arranged marriage in a very big way.
