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.
ranga was influenced by the english way of life in the matter of marriage. he was not in favour of arranged marriages of the time where the brides were quite young. he told the narrator that he was not getting married just then. he gave two reasons. first, he must find a right a girl of his choice. she must be mature enough to understand his love-talk. he gives examples of thirty year old officer who married a twenty five year old lady and that of the king dushyanta faling in love with shakuntla. the second reason he gave was that one should marry a girl he loves.
