In India, almost all marriages are arranged. Even among the educated middle classes in modern, urban India, marriage is as much a concern of the families as it is of the individuals. So customary is the practice of arranged marriage that there is a special name for a marriage which is not （46）arranged: It is called a "love match."
On my first field trip to India, I met many young men and women whose parents were in the process of "getting them married." In many cases, the bride and groom would not meet each other before the marriage. At most they might meet for a （47）briefconversation, and this meeting would take place only after their parents had decided that the match was （48）suitable. Parents do not compel their children to marry a person who either marriage partner finds objectionable. But only after one match is refused will another be sought.
As a young American woman in Indian for the first time, I found this custom of arranged marriage oppressive. How could any intelligent young person （49）agree to such a marriage without great reluctance? It was（50）contrary to everything I believed about the importance of romantic love as the only basis of a happy marriage. It also classed with my strongly held notions that the choice of such an intimate and permanent relationship could be made only by the individuals involved. Had anyone tried to arrange my marriage, I would have been defiant and(51)rebellious!
At the first opportunity, I began, with more curiosity than tact, to question the young people I met on how they felt about this practice. Sita, one of my young informants, was a college graduate with a degree in political science. She had been waiting for over a year while her parents were arranging a match for her. I found it difficult to accept the docile manner in which this well-educated young woman awaited the outcome of a process that would(52) result in her spending the rest of her life with a man she hardly knew, a virtual stranger,(53) picked out by her parents.
Care,”she answerd.”This is why I must let my parents choose a boy for me .My marriage is too important to be arranged by such an inexperienced person as myself.In such matters,it is better to have my parernts” （55）guidance”
