what were ranga's views about marriage

Ranga's views about marriage were as follows:

If one gets married, it should be to a girl who is mature. Otherwise one should remain a bachelor.

If one marries a young girl, there won't be understanding between the couples and the girl may take the words spoken in love as words spoken in anger.

A man should marry a girl he admires.

Ranga was a very civilised and changed person when he had returned to his village. He had no pre-conceived ideas of getting married however, he was spellbound by Ratna's musical abilities and beauty and thus, decided to get married.
