"But he also adds that the new generation is open to love marriage too. "
New Delhi, April 11 - If one goes by a study, Indian couples still like to consider their parents' choice for marriage as over 60 percent weddings are arranged.

Around 600 couples from metro cities in India participated in the study, conducted by an online matchmaking service Truly Madly.com.

According to the findings, 69 percent marriages are still arranged in comparison to only 31 percent love marriages.

Historically, most of the marriages were arranged by parents, hence when we did the survey, we saw this distribution where arranged marriages are still more active than loved ones, Rahul Kumar, co-founder, Truly Madly.com, said in a statement.

But he also adds that the new generation is open to love marriage too.

However, with the new generation becoming more and more aspirational, the trend is now shifting towards love marriages as youngsters want to make their own choices, he said.
