Think arranged marriages are loveless? Not so, says psychologist Robert Epstein, a contributing editor for Scientific American MIND magazine. He spoke1 March 10 at the 92nd Street Y’s Tribeca site in New York City:

 

“And there’s even a study published in India but using an American love scale, called the Rubin Love Scale, that compared love in love marriages in India, because they have those, too, to love in arranged marriages. And in this particular study, love in the love marriages starts out very high. And then over time it decreases. That’s what all of our studies show. And in the arranged marriages—and this is true in my work, too—we see the love starting out relatively2 low. Because in some cases the people barely3 know each other, sometimes they’ve had, you know, a half an hour of contact in total before they got married. And then it increases gradually, surpasses4 the love in the love marriages at about five years. And 10 years out it’s twice as strong.”

 

—Steve Mirsky
