Learning to Love

Arranged Marriages and the British Indian Diaspora

Rutgers University Press

Learning to Love explores the everyday marriage narratives of the British-Indian diaspora. It unpacks the phenomenon of arranged marriages beyond its pejorative stereotypes by highlighting the diversity of interpersonal and emotional negotiations involved in their practice. Using in-depth ethnographic description, the book shows that far from being a homogeneous tradition, arranged marriages involve a variety of different matchmaking practices modified to suit modern diasporic identities.
