Should marriages outwith your own caste be acceptable if you are in love? Should life partners be chosen on their ability to move a bride up a caste? Or by the dowry offered? What are your thoughts on love? Do you believe in love at first sight? If you had a choice what would you prefer? Do you know how many love marriages there are in India? Do you expect this marriage to last forever? Are there many ‘arranged marriage’ divorces? If you were living in another country do you think you would maintain the same marriage values as your parents? Will you arrange a marriage for your children?
