An arranged marriage is one of oldest tradition across the world but from past 100 years this trend is gradually converted into love marriage. Usually when people realize that old approaches are not good enough, they drop them without adapting to new healthy approaches. For example, parents used to punish their children but this concept is not considered to be healthy or ethical. So, new approach of tough love is replacing the concept of punishment. Similarly in marriages, individuals prefer new approach to “pick a partner” and get to know your partner before marriage.

There are numerous researches on love; it is the opposite of fear. Individuals with fear, insecurities and inferiorities do not qualify for love or they cannot love. People confuse love with infatuation and escalation and that is not love. Love is something that develops on merit and must be based on some justification.

According to Dr Sadaqat Ali “Pick model” of marriage produce better results. This model purposes that every individual has the right to choose his\her partner. Selection of partner is a decision of utmost importance and hold long term affect. Foremost task is to know your partner before marriage. Dr Sadaqat Ali suggests evaluating your partner by acronym of M.A.R.S. “M” stands for “manners”, these are the behaviors/habits of individual. “A” represents degree of “agreement”. “R” indicates rate of successful “relations” in family. Whether “S” stand for “solidarity” means unity among both individuals.
