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.

Arranged Marriage

The Politics of Tradition, Resistance, and Change

Edited by Péter Berta
Rutgers University Press

Arranged Marriage shows how arranged marriage practices have been undergoing transformation; how the gendered and intergenerational politics of agency, consent, and choice work in the contexts of partner choice and management of marriage; and how this type of marriage can be reshaped, reinvented, and reinterpreted flexibly in response to individual, family, religious, class, ethnic and other desires, needs, and constraints.
