We do not consider the fact that we may have fallen in love with someone whose life goals are completely different from our's and hence might not be married later.This leads to many complications in the relationship and in our lives.The Arctic culture area, a cold, flat, treeless region (actually a frozen desert) near the Arctic Circle in present-day Alaska, Canada and Greenland, was home to the Inuit and the Aleut.Both groups spoke, and continue to speak, dialects descended from what scholars call the Eskimo-Aleut language family.They know that for every relationship there are always two possibilities, 1) might work out 2) might NOT work out. When two mature people are in love and get into a relationship, they will weigh all the factors like compatibility, background, mentality and so on, and if it does not work out well, if the other person is not what they expected, they politely move out.When such relationships end, there are more chances that you earned a friend for a life time, unlike in India, where most of the relationships end in bad terms just because, they had an expectation of a "lifetime".Of these, some 10 million lived in the area that would become the United States.
Traditionally, Indian dating wasn’t even an option, with arranged marriages being the norm.
The main difference is that, in India people believe in "only one love for a life time".
It is some where embedded in all our brains, that it is decent or acceptable if we have dated only one person and married them and lived with them until our death.
Even though the other person is not deserving, only because we fell in love and gave them the lenience to enter into our personal lives, we think it is now wrong to withdraw and hence end up trying to push the relationship.
In foreign though, this is definitely not the case.
