CHAPTER 11 PAPER: MATRIMONIAL ACTIVITY: ARRANGED MARRIAGE EXPERIENCE

Number of Points: 40
Number of Pages: 4
Imagine you are from a collective culture where ‘arranged marriage’ is the norm. Marriage is not a personal choice. Family plays a vital role in an individual’s marriage. In the age of the Internet, your family wants you to write an online matrimonial advertisement for a designated website {for example, marriage (shaadi).com}. Marriage is once in a lifetime ritual in this culture. Divorce or remarriage is not the norm. Hence, arranging a marriage is a very well thought process. Please do not be shy. After all, this is one of the most important rites of passage of your life. Slight exaggeration or fabrication in highlighting your extraordinary qualities and features is “perfectly okay” and acceptable. There are many cultures in the world where arranged marriage is the norm, for example, India. By the way, arranged marriage does not mean forced marriage. Individuals do have the freedom to reject a prospective bride or groom. I know that most of you would find this assignment strange and uncomfortable. My advice would be to come out of your comfort zone and have fun with this assignment.
There are three parts to this assignment:
Part I: You will describe the characteristics that you think will make you a desirable candidate in the ‘marriage market,’ such as sex/gender, race, ethnicity, religion, class, education, looks, height, weight, personality, values, hobbies, skills, etc. Do state the qualities you have which would make you a perfect life partner. (One page)
Part II: You will describe the characteristics you want in your wife/husband/significant other, such as sex/gender, race, ethnicity, religion, class, education, looks, height, weight, personality, values, hobbies, skills, etc. Do state the qualities you would like in a perfect life partner. (One page)
Part III: Write your reflection/reaction after experiencing a tradition from another culture. Did you have fun? Or did you find this activity humiliating and demeaning? Do you feel that this arrangement of marriage would work for you? Discuss whatever ideas, thoughts, and feelings emerged because of this assignment. Last but not least: please follow the instructions/guidelines; think out of the box; think critically, and enjoy the assignment! (Two pages)
