We definitely don’t need to stress on the importance of marriage in an individual’s life, especially in India. This fact becomes stronger when we see that more than half of India’s humongous population is only below 35 years old.
Owing to years old traditions, arranged marriage is something that clearly dominates everything else even today. While arranged marriages can have their advantages, they often do not reveal important information about a person that can impact the success of the marriage. Many arranged marriages are set up by families or friends, however, even they can miss vital information that may affect you later on.
This is why it is important to take basic pre-marriage checks to ensure that your potential partner is trustworthy and compatible with you.
Ways to Add More Security to Your Potential Marriage
1. Professional Background Check
If you’re unsure about where to begin or how to go about your private investigation, you can acquire the services of a private detective agency instead. For instance, SilverSpy is a private detective agency in Ahmedabad that has experience dealing with all kinds of cases.
As a private investigator in India, we understand the nuances behind arranged marriages and their respective proceedings. Similarly, you can always consult any similar trusted company or brand to do the work for you.
Of course, you wouldn’t want to do anything extreme or unethical to your potential partner just out of suspicion. Therefore, a private investigation agency can guide you to take just the basic steps of checking criminal records, employment history, education, etc.
2. Social Media Check
The world is increasingly becoming digital and with people spending more time on their screens than real life, it has become difficult to divorce someone’s ideology, thinking patterns, and habits in real life from their digital life.
While it is still hasty to make concrete judgements about someone through their social media profiles, it can be wise to be aware nonetheless. Potential red flags or other misunderstandings can be cleared through open conversations, leading to better communication between the two overall.
On a positive note, social media checks can also lead to knowing about the other person’s hobbies and interests, which they usually wouldn’t share in their bio or with their families. If you’re not tech savvy, you can again consider a private investigator.
3. Financial Check
Money may not matter in love, but it surely does in marriage. That’s not to say that arranged marriages are supposed to be loveless, but rather love mixed with a healthy dose of practicality.
Discussing finances can be uncomfortable, especially in the beginning stages such as pre-marriage. The unfortunate fact, however, is that financial issues are one of the leading reasons why people file for divorce. Hidden finances, poor credit card scores, unchecked debt, and more can not only add stress to your relationship but subtly erode the stability of the relationship.
Discussing spending habits, desires, debts, saving plans, etc. can go a long way in establishing trust in each other.
