Most Indians still prefer arranged marriages

If one goes by a study, Indian couples still like to consider their parents' choice for marriage as over 60 percent weddings are arranged.

Around 600 couples from metro cities in India participated in the study, conducted by an online matchmaking service Truly

According to the findings, 69 per cent marriages are still arranged in comparison to only 31 per cent love marriages.

"Historically, most of the marriages were arranged by parents, hence when we did the survey, we saw this distribution where arranged marriages are still more active than loved ones," Rahul Kumar, co-founder, Truly, said in a statement.
