Hindus have a purpose in life called the Artha Purusa Catur Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. This can not be realized at once but gradually.
Stages to achieve the four goals of life is called the Chess Hostel. At this stage of life goals Brahmacari priority boarding for Dharma. Boarding priority Grhasta realize artha and kama. While in Wanaprasta Boarding and Boarding Sanyasa prioritized goals to achieve moksa.
Marriage or Wiwaha is an attempt to realize the purpose of life Grhasta Dormitory. Main tasks of ejection by Grhasta Boarding Parwa Agastya is to realize a life that is called “magic Kayika yatha Dharma” which means the ability to implement the Dharma itself. So a Grhasta should really be able to independently realize the Dharma in this life. Independence and professionalism is what should really be prepared by a Hindu who wanted to take marriage.
In a marriage there are two goals that must be resolved by realizing that completely artha and kama are based on Dharma.
In the preparation stage, a person who will enter the marriage in desperate need of guidance, especially to do with success or minimize the barriers that may arise. Guidance will be very good if given by an expert in the field of Hindu religion, especially concerning the duties and obligations of a grhastha, to be independent within the manifest destiny to get artha and kama based on Dharma.
Marriage is essentially a yadnya to provide an opportunity for fathers to incarnate again in order to improve his karma. Sarasamuscaya biblical verse 2 mentioned “Ri sarwa sakwehning bhuta, iking Janam gumaweakenikang wang authorities also asubha karma subha, subha ring worm panentasakena karma karma also ikang asubha dadi pahalaning wang” means: from this number all living creatures, who was born as a human that’s all I can do good or bad. As for consolidation bad deeds into good deeds, it is useful to be human.
Associated with the verse in the bag, karma only incarnate as a human being, karma can be improved to a perfect karma subha. Have children through marriage and keep it with real affection to a yadnya ancestors. Moreover if the child can be nurtured and educated to be human suputra, would constitute an act exceeding one hundred yadnya, as mentioned in Slokantara
Hindu marriage is a holy and sacred, and therefore the Vedic era, the marriage is determined by a sage, who can see clearly, beyond the spiritual vision, who will be married couples. With a view of an expert or a Brahmin Rishi Sista, fit or not fitting of a married couple will be seen clearly.
Couples who do not fit (in spirit) is recommended to cancel his marriage plans, because it can definitely be fatal to both families involved. After days of Dharma Sastra, the couple no longer reconcilable by the sage, but by the king or brides parents, by considering the mundane, such as maintaining the dignity of the family, consideration of wealth, beauty, kegantengan and others. When this started declining spiritual values as a basis for consideration.
In the modern era and the era of globalization, as now, the role of parents probably have not so dominant in determining mate sons. Young children more now determine their own soul mate. Determination mate by themselves are very tergantuang on their ability levels to marriage. But it seems more determined by worldly considerations, such as physical beauty, the degree of family and social measures rather than the degree of economic and spiritual.
