In arranged marriages, the parents will be thoroughly investigating the background of the bride and the groom. They will be looking into every aspect, like wealth, health conditions and habits. In love marriages, the couples are not worried about any background investigations. It is just love that runs in their blood.

When talking about love, love has to be developed in an arranged marriage, as they will only know each other better after the wedlock, but in a love marriage, the couples have always been in love, and there is no need to develop it.

In arranged marriages, the couples may not be able to understand each other very well, and also not know the likes and dislikes of each other.

In such marriages, no one seems to be dominant person over the other.
