Another of my post is published in The Himalayan Times , one of the leading daily papers in Nepal.
I am honoured and happy to be a part of the paper again.
It was published in 05 August 2014 under Blog Surf section. If you are in Kathmandu, get the paper and find me on page 8 and for those who can’t, here is how it looked :).
And here is the link to their epaper.
Please read the full post here and share your view on arrange marriage.
Take care ,

Congrats for being featured in the paper, my friend! I admired your positive statements about arranged marriages. I am so glad your parents and in laws have long and happy marriages. I definitely chose men for their own characteristics, thought I was ‘in love,’ and guess what? I would have had much better marriages and more longer lasting ones, had I not chosen, but my family found the ‘right’ ones! Smiles, Robin
Thanks Robin.The men who didn’t have you in their life right now is stupid as I know you are such a lovely person and its their loss. I am sure you will find someone who is everything you are hoping for and more. take care dear.
All of my experiences regarding arranged marriages (meeting couples) have been that they are happy and in love.
Thanks Lauren :). I am sure there is some bad example of arranged marriage but it is not bad as many people in west make it out to be.
I actually don’t mind arranged marriages, as long as the man and woman are free . ( which means, they are not in a relationship with other people )
I completely agree with you.No matter what type of marriage yo u are entering, one need to be honest from the start.
