The Business of Marriage and Bio Data

29 May 2009 53 Comments

In India, and in some parts of the Muslim world, marriage is entered into much like a Business Agreement (contract) is entered into in the United States.  Under US law, in order for a contract to be binding, it must include four components:  An Offer, Acceptance, Competency, and Consideration (the exchange of value.)  An offer must be presented and accepted.  The parties entering into the Agreement must be mentally competent and of an age of accountability.  Something of value must be exchanged.

In seeking marriage:

The process of Sourcing for  the contract (identifying suppliers) may include a referral, as in the case of selection of spouse by parents, or recommendation of spouse by an Aunt.

The Request for Proposal (offers) may include a request for a Bio Data Form.

The Offer includes formal Bio Data, reduced to writing, generally includes the standard components of a Statement of Qualifications, Curriculum Vitae (CV), or resume:   Full name.  Father and mother’s full name.    Address.   Telephone Number. Qualifications.  Employment Status and History.    Additionally, it adds personal information such as Date of Birth, Place of Birth,  Information about Family Members, Caste and Sub-Caste.  Horoscope information (whether clear or containing ”mangal’) may be added as well.  Mangal refers to the position of Mars at the time of birth of an individual- considered by some in India to portend compatability.

Acceptance, of course, will be the matrimonial bond.

Competency to enter into the marriage contract must be grounded in mental capacity and an appropriate age of consent.

It is interesting that even as our world has become more educated and travelled, customs of arranged marraiges continue.  Still, traditions that appear archaic to westerners suggest a proof of the pudding that is undeniable:  Arranged marraiges generally have a 5-7% divorce rate, vs. a 50% divorce rate for US marriages.  Is it the arrangement itself that is yielding this success, or is it rather the values of those who submit to such external decision making for their lives that achieves a lasting bond?  Or is the word bond the portentious truth-  better read as “bondage”?

As a westerner by birth, truly I do not know.  As a world citizen, I present that personal choice with respect to entering into marriage must be primary- a fundamental human right.  The individual may, in fact, choose to yield their decision to another.   Or they may not.  Who can define Love?  It is like a color: we know it, we can find it.  But describe it or it’s source?  Impossible.  Hundreds of thousands of arranged marriages throughout existence have found  grounding in love.  As a world we can expect that the beauty of traditions, and the sacrosanctity of the rights of the individual to elect their own life paths will continue to grow together.  Regardless of our own beliefs and decisions, me must tolerate, and  value, the beliefs and decisions of others.

As in business, which ever-seeks to improve quality, the Continuous Process Improvement of life is paramount- even a duty.   To this end, I submit that in 2009, the biodata form of the world citizen should evolve, including not only physical attributes and personal history, but the more important characteristics that contribute to our world:  Goals and Objectives, Aspirations (Mission Statement), and Virtues (Qualifications).  Cumulatively, the Scope of Workpersonally, and within the family, community and larger world.

To the many world-wide who have been seeking a Biodata Form for Marriage, consider this revision to the old format which included simply vital statistics.      Bio Data Form for Marriage of an enlightened World Citizen.

    Good afternoon! providing escort services for men information there. prostitution men. Your Kyivska prostitute. You can visit my blog.

    Hi, gausgirl. I am sad to see from your blog that you are a prostitute. I surely hope the biodata form is not used in support of prostitution- the oldest form of slavery. Many people from throughout the world use a bio-data form in seeking marriage. I learned this recently, and thought it was interesting. If you have the skills to put up a website, you have the power to find global opportunity and get out of the terrible situation you are in.

    Hi, Reviews. Well, this doesn’t contain my information…. The article is a commentary on the fact that many people in the world use a form like this, and in trying to understand that, a suggestion that values are more important than vital statistics.. 🙂
