The right age to marry depends on a person’s skills and capability to handle the responsibilities. Although the cultural traditions vary vastly, but living in marriage is a learnable skill. One shouldn’t solely rely on physical appearance when choosing a life partner, it is not permanent. It is the characteristic traits and habits that matter most. A key indicator to evaluate a person is to check his/her behavior with the less privileged people (like servants, maids, etc). A couple should cash on similar habits but needs to be more patient and accommodating towards different habits. In our culture, arranged marriages are more preferred by parents. Parents are experienced and they cannot only guide children but should also involve them in the decision-making process, train and make them aware from teenage, ask for their likes/dislikes. A marriage’s success is based on mutual consensus.

Knowing each other is important. Be aware and open in observing the possible person’s behavior with others in general. One should not be moody/hasty, rather be caring, consistent, respect boundaries/limitations, law and be disciplined. One who is disciplined and responsible is more trustworthy and reliable. If the families feel that the relationship won’t be conducive for marriage, end it respectfully than to repent later on. One should learn skills and be well prepared about responsibilities
