Committment Essay

2517 words - 11 pages

Crawford (2012) described many difference characteristics in mate selection which may potentially lead to marriage. She first describes marriage as being institutionalized because the laws (and certain religions) tells you who you can and cannot marry, when you can marry, and the responsibilities to each other while married. Yet people are infatuated with the ideology of love and romance. People choose their partners as individuals and expect to live their marriages according to their own needs and wishes (Crawford, 2012). Something that can explain why people choose to get married can be the marriage gradient. The marriage gradient states that women have the tendency to “marry up” and men ...view middle of the document...

In the movie did not show Aditi as a young woman pursuing a career or working. You can assume she’s from a middle class family due to the fact that the expensive of her wedding were paid by her father (as a tradition by their culture) yet he has to borrow some extra money from a friend in the middle of the movie. Even though this is an arranged marriage, it is evident that the future husband is “marrying down” and Aditi is “marrying up”.
2. Modern marriages are considered “senior partner-junior partner” relationship. Wives work outside the home but her job is considered less valuable than her husband. Her job is just considered as extra money to “help out”. Contrary to traditional marriages, modern marriages value time spent together and some discussions touch base on husband/wife roles rather than taking them for granted. Like traditional marriages the wife is still as responsible for household chores and child care but since they work, this is considered as a second shift. Aditi’s parents can be considered a modern marriage. The movie does not show either parent working but you can see the father spending majority of the money throughout the wedding ceremonies. They do spend time together, whether it is with family or alone. They speak to each other about their children and their wedding. There is a scene where Aditi’s mother is showing her husband the silverware that was given to her by her mother when she got married, as well as some fabrics that was passed down to her. They engaged in a conversation on how their only daughter is about to leave home and start her life as a married woman. Aditi’s father cherishes his moments with his family. He loves his children, as well as his late brother’s children. Needless to say, they engage in modern martial things with little to no engagement to traditional marital attitudes.
Egalitarian marriages are where couple have equal power and authority (Crawford, 2012). They share responsibilities equally without respect to gender roles, meaning the husband can do dishes and cook and the wife can mow the lawn and change a light bulb. Egalitarian couples understand each other, communicate well, and enjoy spending quality time with each other. You are likely to hear egalitarian couple call their partner their best friend and believe that their relationship is one of a kind. Hermant outlook on his marriage with Aditi leaded towards an egalitarian marriage. He takes the time out in the morning to spend time with his future wife, to get to know her and make sure she is comfortable with the decision of getting married. He is very considerate, especially when it comes down to Aditi and her strong bond with her family. She does not act like a subordinate when she is around him and he treats her very fair throughout the whole process of the marriage.
3. According to Al-Zu’abi (2008) marriage is an institution where mating receives social acceptance and the coupling of men and women is regulated. All cultures...
