Smitten by the idea of long term courtship, yay or nay?


“Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years”- Simone Signoret

Marriages are made in heaven and consummated on Earth, when two soul mates find each other or are introduced to one another by their families. But crumbling marriages have become commonplace. The belief in the matrimonial system is fading out and couples are becoming intolerant. Let’s see what singer/actor Amit Tandon’s views about courtship prior to marriage are:


“I don’t think there is any kind of time limit as such. There are couples who stay in love and a relationship for years before getting married. I met a couple who got to know each other just a month ago and still they are super happy with each other. So I don’t think there should be any fixed time period in a relationship but the main criteria should be compatibility and willingness to compromise and accept somebody else as who they are. We can’t predict time limits as celebs are also breaking off after years of relationship. So, I don’t think other than compromising and accepting there is nothing as important, for a successful relationship.

My Advice: Don’t jump into a decision because of your emotions, take a look at all the factors just like your parents see, we ignore the perspective but don’t forget that apart from love there are many other aspects like family, career, compatibility, habits that are more important indeed in the long run”

You know when it’s right, it’s right. But a little understanding and getting to know one another never hurts anyone!
