First comes love, then comes marriage. But, for some... it doesn't. Follow Najwa, Rohit and Arwa as they jump head first in to marriages arraned by their families..
I wish I could get an update on all of them right now! This is my favorite episode of True Life ever! 000a
I find the cultural scope of this episode to be strangely narrow . . !!
My parents are also in an arranged marriage. They met at their own wedding. And they've been married for twenty two years so far. Even though they're not in love, they still have love for each other, and they make a great team. I hope my parents make a great decision regarding my own arranged marriage. :)
Honestly...would YOU marry that guy? I wouldn't.
Um, it's not Rahid. It's Rohit.
they are utterly adorable!
i sure hope that girl najwa returned all his gifts after backing down from a marriage 2 weeks before the wedding. that would be the right thing to do. this is why you cant just trust people you dont know. oh and rohit's dinner was so unappetizing.. :-)
Amazing!!!! that's all i have to say. This was a real eye opener ,arranged marriages have allways been in my culture but the fight for modernization has denied the platfrom for arranged marriages, and as a Nigerian American I think it's BEAUTIFUL!!
Rohit and Saumya are so cute together.
This is one of my favorite True Life episodes..I've watched it like 10 times already lol. They need some new True Life episodes cause I keep rewatching just about all of them. =[
this is really interesting
i love their culture.... i learned alot just watching this. i didnt know you could back out of an arranged marraige. thank God you can. they didnt seem like a match to me. i wish more men were this anxious to get married lol.
Rahid and his wife seemed really cute together
as far as Arwa, i feel for you girl. In my opinion, that guy who asked you to dance is a pretty big lowlife. I'll never understand why some guys who know full well they have no interest in a girl say they will or get in touch as they are leaving, just to be polite. Its the lowest of low things you can do. Get some balls dude, if you're not going to call, please don't make false promises, you come off being a far bigger dickhead than if you just politely say, "it was nice meeting you, goodluck with your search to find you're soulmate".
i know somebody in the same situation as najwa, but who decided to go through with the wedding. it just ended in divorce. i personally think she made the right decision, you have to decide your level of spirituality BEFORE you jump in a lifelong partnership. especially with the religion of islam, it will never work if the couple is on different ends of the spectrum. next time, decide these things before you take it to the point of getting within 3 weeks of the wedding...
I was kind of disappointed that the girl backed out of the marriage. He seemed like a really nice guy and they got along pretty well, her family seemed to really like him. I guess just since he lived in a different town, and all her siblings seemed against it. Glad the other marriage worked out, was nice to see a different perspective on marriage and love!
Wow I really enjoyed watching this, learned so much about a different culture.
